RMG sector in misery over slow port deliveries

Jun '10
Garment producers aver that, over the last few weeks, the delivery of imported inputs via Chittagong Port has lost its pace.

According to the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA), earlier, it took around two to three days for them to get hold of the imported materials after the vessel came ashore, but now it takes around 10 days.

Such delayed supply of the inputs has lead to shortage of raw materials in various factories and has thus, affected the manufacturing and distribution processes of RMG products.

Since, the Chittagong Port Authority (CPA) took over control of the cargo handling operations on May 11 there has been degeneration of the circumstances. As a distressed lot of co-berth operators procured a High Court order on April 29, directing to cease activities of the operators, CPA shelved activities of these operators and took over the cargo handling operations at the port.

It is since May 25 that, around 25 containers containing RMG related items are wedged at the CCT (Chittagong Container Terminal), BGMEA and some of the port officials stated.

Also according to the industry personnel, they haven't obtained any RMG raw materials from the vessels that, disembarked on June 2 or after that. They also stated that, a vessel named Hansa Commodore did land at CCT on June 2 and even left after four days, but none of the consignments have been released.

Consignees are even waiting to get hold of their consignments from other vessels like Kuo Hsiung, Hansa Calidonia and Kota Rakan. The vessels anchored at the port on June 3, June 4 and June 5 respectively.

Reacting to the situation, CPA officials stated that, they have already taken requisite measures so as to speed up the delivery process.
