Vessel delays and container logjams increase at port of Chittagong
Vessels are waiting up to five days for a berth at Chittagong port, adding to the woes of importers during lockdown and the month of Ramadan. Port officials say during Ramadan, working hours at the port have fallen, resulting in less productivity and longer queues for an unloading window. Previously, vessels berthed within two days of arriving at the port area and, normally, ships can unload boxes and reload within 48 hours. This has now increased to 72 hours.
