With the help of our agency, you can have CTN for Nigeria presumably in 1-5 workdays. This timeline also depends on your document’s legibility, clarity, and accuracy. With the complete documents, you can have a Cargo tracking note in 1 day. With incomplete documents, the average timeline for the process might be extended.
