Chattogram-Colombo Feeder Service Disrupted By Bangladeshi Trucking Walkout

: Transport

Bangladeshi Truckers Extend Walkout and Paralyze Movement In and Around Chattogram Port 2018-11-01

Dear Valued Customer,

Milgram’s Bangladeshi agent has informed us that the following feeder vessels were delayed departing from Chattogram to their port of trans-shipment at Colombo: 
  • TR ARAMIS - 013S
  • OCEAN PROLOGUE – 18062
Container from both vessels were intended to connect on MOL PARADISE - 303E (EC5843E) Colombo-Halifax and sailed from Chattogram late on the afternoon of October 31, 2018.
 
The vessels were expected to leave Chattogram on October 30, 2018 but deferred their departure for nearly 48 hours due to a strike called by the local transport workers association. This strike caused a halt to movements and port operations on October 28th and October 29th that kept both feeders from completing their cargo operation in time.
 
Further information on this event is available from news outlets The Daily Star and Container News.
 
It appears that containers might not connect as scheduled onto MOL PARADISE - 303E (EC5843E) and that any units impacted by this delay will might have to transit on later vessels.
 
Our agent is working with their steamship counterparts t expedite transshipment through Colombo on the first available sailing to Halifax.
 
Please contact your Milgram-C.H. Robinson client services representative for any additional information or the status of a particular shipment.
 
Thank you for being our Valued Customer.
