Bordereau de Suivi des Cargaisons

Embassy Logistic Terms: Bordereau de Suivi des Cargaisons

A number of countries in Africa – among which Ivory Coast – require a waiver document for all import shipments.

The authorities in the country of destination must be in possession of the waiver document prior to arrival of the vessel.

Each country has their own regulations for waiver documentation and in fact, some countries have a different name for the document
