Garment producers seek two more months for CTMS at Ctg port

Bangladeshi garment producers have sought a time of two more months to prepare for the launch of container terminal management system (CTMS) at Chittagong port, thus once again rendering the launch of CTMS indecisive.

At a meeting of the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA), the apex body of garment producers in the country, garment manufacturers claimed that in the absence of proper infrastructural facility, this is not the proper time for introduction of such an advanced system.

The new system, which is based on a computer operated system, is believed to provide most speedy service to the port users. It is intended to considerably bring down the leading port's turnaround time and to ensure stress-free port operations.

Owing to opposition from BGMEA, launch of the new system has already been delayed four times. It was scheduled for launch for the fifth time on September 11.

The CTMS project, worth around four million euro, was first scheduled for launch in December 2010, which was then delayed to February then to June and subsequently to August, the Chittagong port authorities revealed.

The port authority was requested to initially launch the system on an experimental basis for duration of one year, but the port authority chose to do so for three months duration.

Although the decision to install the new system at the country's main sea port was taken in 2005, the port authorities failed to implement it sooner owing to various reasons.

Once the system is installed, it would significantly reduce the manual dealing at the port.

The new system is being implemented by the Chittagong Port Authority (CPA) with the Tk 380 million funds sponsored by the Asian Development Bank (ADB).
