Volcanic ash disrupts textile export deliveries

May '10
The volcanic eruption in Iceland which threw a pall of volcanic dust all over Europe had disrupted thousands of passenger and transport flights all over Europe as most of the airports shutdown, to avoid any air disasters. More than this, it also created an impact on the export deliveries of countries in the Asian sub-continent like Pakistan and India.

According to reports coming out of Pakistan tons of textiles and clothing were stranded at Pakistani airports. Samples which are sent for approvals too got struck due to the flight cancellations. Exporters will now have to hire charter flights to ensure that the goods reach the European destinations on time.

Speaking to fibre2fashion, Mr. Mohsin Ayub Mirza, Chairman of Pakistan Readymade Garment Manufacturers & Exporters Association (PRGMEA) said, “Global aviation chaos due to volcanic dust over the European continent has interrupted Pakistan's textile sectors production of at least three weeks, and exporters faced traveling hurdles to finalize deals with foreign buyers.”

He added by saying, “Scores of samples which had been sent to European and the US buyers could not reach due to aviation disorder. Now these samples are likely to reach their destinations in about two weeks and their sorting by the buyers will also take additional time.”

“As a result the local exporters will need to wait for at least three weeks to finalize production and production process cannot start unless and until we receive the final nod from our buyers. Flights rescheduling and inflated fares will also add to the above problem”, he concluded by saying.
