Ctg port freezes operations due to strike

The Chattogram port's overall operations came to a standstill in the last one and a half days because of the countrywide transport strike, stoking fears it could cause fresh container congestion at the country's premier port.

Around 1,200 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) of export-bound containers are normally transported to the port everyday from the 16 private inland container depots (ICDs) located in the city and in its outskirts.

On the other hand, about 2,000 TEUs of import containers are carried to the ICDs from the port.

But no such movement of containers took place to and fro from the ICDs since the strike began on Sunday morning till the filing of the report at 5:30pm yesterday.

Scheduled sailing of two vessels -- TR Aramis and A Idefix -- from the port was cancelled yesterday after they failed to receive export containers, sources said.

Golam Md Sarwarul Islam, terminal manager of Chittagong Port Authority, said they completed the delivery procedure of 86 TEUs of import containers on Sunday but could not release them as the vehicles carrying the containers were stranded inside the port because of the strike.
