Cut Of Time Rules In Chittagong Port.

Cut Of Time Rules In Chittagong Port

Turn-around time is a very common term in the shipping sector. It means the time taken for a ship to enter the port and come out after unloading and loading the cargo. Due to lengthy process and burden of cargo, the turn-around time at Chittagong is much higher than that of other ports in neighboring countries. According to a World Bank report, the turn-around time at Chittagong is 6-10 days, compared with two days in Bangkok and one day in Singapore.

The Chittagong port also does not follow the cut-off time for loading and unloading cargo. The port starts taking booking after a ship anchors at the terminal, and it continues for 24 hours. The shipping agents can increase the cut-off time with the permission of the port authority.

But the ports in Singapore and Malaysia cease booking of export cargo at least 12 hours before anchoring the ship at the terminal. Those ports do not take booking of the return cargo after anchoring the ship at the terminal. Therefore, the ships do not stay at the terminal more than the 12 hours required for loading and unloading cargo.
