Ensuring African ACI trade success

SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, is pleased to announce details of its Advanced Cargo Information (ACI) services for African import/export businesses.

Providing a certificate of registered Advanced Cargo Information (ACI), also known as an Electronic Cargo Tracking Note (BESC in French), is mandatory for trading in 27 African countries. Verified details of consignments ensure smooth and speedy import/exports whilst also giving full details of cargoes, their origin and destination, before shipments arrive.

To simplify the procedure and avoid costly errors, SGS provides ACI services for exporters and freight forwarders, streamlining their procedures and ensuring compliance with national requirements.

SGS’s global network enables trade parties and authorities to prepare fully and accurately for stringent trading product conformity regulations. Its local expertise and knowledge allow for customizable services to suit individual businesses.

More information about ACI and trade facilitation services for Africa is available in the Q4 PCA newsletter.
