IGI Airport to speed up shipments of readymade garments, GEA

The Garments Exporters have complained that their shipments to overseas buyers have been held up at IGI Airport, New Delhi.

Mr Rakesh Vaid, President, GEA in an exclusive interaction with fibre2fashion.com has expressed serious concern over the delay in clearance of export shipments of readymade garments, for more than a month now because of non-functioning of EDI Computer System at IGI, Airport resulting in undue delay in cargo movement and financial hardships to exporters.

Although, the Customs Department has started working with the Manual System, the process is still very slow and time consuming resulting in unnecessary delays in clearing the shipments, which has hit the exporters very hard, said Mr Vaid.

Mr Rakesh Vaid pointed out that the International market is highly sensitive and competitive and if shipments do not reach within the stipulated time, there will be lot of cancellation of orders and substantial loss to the exporters who are already facing hardships because of worldwide recession and low unit value realization from the overseas market.

Mr Vaid further pointed out that the Garment Exporters are still facing crisis because of worldwide recession and low unit value realization from the overseas market and it would take some more time for the world economy and the apparel trade to revive the worst ever global slowdown which started during 2007-08 and intensified to a crisis in 2008-09.The recent appreciation of rupee against US dollar has further eroded the profitability of garment exporters who are already working on very low margins.

Mr Vaid has urged upon the concerned Government authorities to issue necessary instructions to the concerned customs officers for prompt rectification of the defects in the Electronic Data Interchange System at IGI Airport to ensure speedy movement of export cargo to avoid huge backlogs at the Cargo Complex.
