Garment exporters hit by delay in shipment at IGI Airport
May '11
The Garments Exporters Association has regretted that inspite of repeated complaints and subsequent assurances given by the Commissioner of Customs, Air Cargo and other concerned officers of DIAL, GMR and CELEBI, the present situation at the cargo complex is far from satisfactory resulting in unnecessary delays in clearing export shipments.

In an exclusive interaction with Fibre2Fashion.com Mr Pritam Goel, Sr.Vice-President, Garments Exporters Association has pointed out that it is now more than two months that shipments at Air Cargo Export at Delhi Airport have been delayed. He further pointed out that large number of trucks carrying export shipments are queuing up at the cargo terminal.

He further pointed out that inadequate infrastructure and manpower with the CELEBI are mainly responsible for the huge backlog at the cargo complex. The security check through X-ray machines is also adding to the delay and unnecessary difficulties to the exporters. The ongoing renovation work being carried out at the cargo complex has also further worsened the situation, said Mr Goel.

Mr Goel 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.
