Inordinate delay in cargo handling upsets exporters

Jun '10
Exporters from Bangladesh are deeply concerned over the undue delay in handling of the cargo at the Chittagong sea port, as this takes a great deal of their time and money.

Exporters whined that, as the new cargo handling authority assumed charge on May 10, 2010, there has been a dramatic increase in the time taken in clearance of the cargo.

They alleged that, generally where the maximum time to unload imported goods for the garments industry should not exceed three days, the authorities are taking around 10 days for the purpose.

Dearth of handling tools and inexperienced or inept port handlers along with the container pilferage within the secured zone, are the reasons that are stretching the vessels' swivel cycle, thereby, resulting in an extra cost of around Tk 15,000 per trip.

Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA), so as to work out an effective solution for the issue, has summoned all the stakeholders for an emergency meeting at its regional office.

Nasir Uddin Chowdhury, BGMEA's First Vice-President who presided at the meet remarked that, the existing cargo handling situation is appalling and is hampering the port's reputation. Also, as he held the Chittagong Port Authority liable for this affliction, and has also condemned the new management which is now handling the cargo handling processes.

It was resolved that, a committee including all the stakeholders will carry out an emergency meeting with the chairman of the port and other concerned government authorities, as also would persist with the task to perk up the port's efficiency.
