Ctg Port warns to impose penal rent on containers

  • Print
Chattogram Bureau :
Chittagong Port Authority has threatened to impose penal rent on fully-loaded containers to force the importers to get delivery immediately and free the port yard, officials said on Friday.
The warning came as the country's prime seaport is flooded with such containers   disrupting day-to-day affairs. According to the CPA officials, more than 37,000 twenty-feet equivalent units of fully-loaded containers were lying at the port yard against its capacity of storing 33,248 TEUs of boxes.
Last week the number of loaded containers at the port yard rose to over 40,000 TEUs prompting the Authority to issue warnings to shippers."After the issuance of the warning, the situation is gradually improving," said a CPA official. In a notification, CPA director Enamul Karim said the number of containers at the port yard is increasing significantly since importers are getting delivery of containers slowly.
"To help continue the normal operational activities at the port yard [importers] are requested to take the delivery of FCL containers immediately," he wrote. Mr Karim also said the port and customs authority are ready to provide delivery of the containers round the clock.
After the notification is issued the delivery situation will be observed for seven days and if the situation is not improved, additional store rent will be imposed on loaded containers in line with the section 160 of Regulations for Working of Chittagong Port, 2001, he warned.
