Importers slow to take delivery of their cargoes due to lockdown

Bangladesh: Slow delivery frustrates Chittagong port activities

Operational activities at Chittagong Port are hampered by a significant rise in the number of undelivered Reefer Containers as importers are not too interested to get their imported perishable items released from the port amid the current lockdown.

This Wednesday, the Chittagong Port Authority (CPA)  issued directives asking concerned importers to take delivery of their cargoes imported in Reefer Containers or Refrigerated Containers by Sunday. The reason for this is that the numbers of undelivered Reefer Containers rose beyond the port's accommodation limit, which is impeding import and export activities.

According to, Port users have said deliveries of other goods from the port are being severely hampered as Reefer Containers have piled up on the jetties at an incredible rate in the last one month.
