Silver lining in Chittagong in a midst of the serious chaos

In a midst of the serious chaos (Inclement Weather / Serious congestion), there seems to be a silver lining in Chittagong. There are numerous initiatives taken by CPA (Chittagong Port Authority) to improve the efficiency.

Few points we would like to highlight are given below:

  1. Night Navigation – this is one of the major breakthrough for Chittagong. Ships will berth / un-berth round the clock!
  2. After the accident at CCT3, the berth is now open for geared ships.
  3. Strict implementation of Cut-Off’s for export cargo.
  4. Speedy procurement of new equipment’s to improve the productivity at NCT. 12 RTG’s to arrive by Dec 2017. Seven Straddle Carriers on the way to Chittagong.
  5. Create additional yard capacity in order to move longstanding boxes and ease off the congestion within the port area.
