RMG consignments pile-up at Dhaka airport

Apr '10
The European aerial lock-down, has resulted in a pile-up of over 1,000 tons of Bangladeshi garments, to be exported to the European stores for the summer season, at Dhaka airport. During the months of March and May, the air shipments remain in high demand, as the exporters struggle to meet the summer season deadlines of European fashion houses.

Thousands of tons of cargo is stuck at the Dhaka airport as the eruption of a volcano in Iceland closed large sections of European airspace, since the end of past week. The eruption of a volcano in Iceland, last week, sent clouds of ash into the atmosphere which posed risk to aviation, leading to a closure of the European airspace.

The cargo stuck at the airport largely contains garment items, which have to be shipped in emergency to meet Europe's summer deadline. This volcanic ash would lead to the loss of millions of dollars for garment exporters and air cargo operators. On account of all this, the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport at Dhaka has suspended the booking of cargo shipments of time-sensitive garments.
