Port congestion in Chittagong, Bangladesh


Dear Valued Customer,


Terminals in Chittagong have recently been congested. Elevated CY utilization leading up to slow terminal productivity, and ships arriving at the same time have so far been identified as the main root causes.


This situation is affecting all carriers operating in Chittagong with most of the vessels having schedule impact of 2.5-3 days at minimum.



At this moment, it is still difficult to define with certainty when the congestion will ease off. We continue providing regular updates on the situation, which we hope will assist you in planning your transportation requirements.




We thank you for your valuable support.
Thank You.
Yours faithfully,
