Apparel exporters worried over delay in shipments

The unrest in the main commercial hub and port city of Karachi is raising apprehensions in the textile and value-added textile exporting community of Pakistan. The anxiety is mainly of missing shipping deadlines due to delays in road transportation.

“If we miss one sailing, then we have to wait for another 10 days. For instance, if the shipment is late by say around two weeks, then the goods will be left idle and unattended. In which case, a lot of orders get cancelled, thereby adding more problems”, Mr Ijaz Khokhar, Chairman - Pakistan Readymade Garments Manufacturers and Exporters Association (PRGMEA) told fibre2fashion.

Speaking about the situation, he said, “Basically the garment sector is not affected directly, but the disturbance in law & order that hurts shipments is more alarming. Exports to all the countries are being conducted through the Karachi sea port. So our major concern is the export shipments being delayed.

“This is because; all the goods from Sialkot, Lahore and all of Pakistan are transported to Karachi by road for shipments, which get delayed due to the law and order situation. Secondly, not only exports are affected, local employment is also hit hard. The people who are working on daily wages too face a lot of problems. So there is a social problem too that is coming up.

“We are hoping the situation to improve soon because our government is very much concerned about the Karachi situation. The President, more or less, once or twice a week, is visiting Karachi in order to control the situation. It is also on the top of the agenda for the Interior Minister and other local provincial officials. Everybody is trying their best, so we all are hoping that things will be getting better soon”, he concluded by saying.
