CHENNAI – AIR

Still Chennai AirPort is facing the PEAK SEASON issue, Airport Operation is having very pathetic situation. AIR PORT ramp no space to off load the cargo, minimum 10 to 12 Hrs once Truck reached at Air Port to get offload. Also, ICEGATE system is little bit improved compare to last week, shipping bill numbers are generating within 1-2 days time, All the Air Line have increased their pricing because of this current QR issue, they are accepting more cargo on EXRESS MODE. QATAR has cancelled their Last week 3 freighter’s & tomorrow (28.06.17) freighter is also cancelled, so they are not accepting any shipment for tomorrow flight to clear the back log, space is too tight in Chennai, and all Europe carriers are giving preference only on Express rates cargo and increased their rates even though they are not able to give confirm schedule. Due to BRU – HUB huge back log we have requested QR to route our France shipment via LUX/LGG.EY don’t have space for Paris sector’s till next week from AUH

TO CDG. Space open only next 7th July 2017 as per EY origin office for new booking.

BANGLADESH: –

Berthing Congestion:

1. Average Berthing Delay ( waiting time at Outer as of now)_

NCT – 08~09 days ↑ (Though CPA shifting vessel from NCT to GCB for to reduce NCT vessel’s waiting time)
CCT – 12~13 days ↑
GCB – 07~08 days ↑

* Avg. waiting time at anchorage now is 7-8 days for GCB and 8-9 days for NCT.

* Recently a vessel collided at CCT/3 berth and badly damaged both Gantry cranes and berth. For this reason presently CCT/3 berth is out of commission and for GEARLESS vessel CPA having only one working berth (CCT/1) out of two.

* Till yesterday, 20 container vessels are waiting at anchorage. CPA accommodated 10 Container vessels (GCB-4, CCT-1, NCT-5-) against 12 Container quota/berth, However from today 03/07, CPA will accommodate one more vessel at GCB. CCT-1 is still out of commission after the incident of collision with vessel.

* Chittagong port operation suspension for 36Hrs due to EID closure made chain affect for the down line vessel’s performance/productivity.

CY Yard Congestion :

CY congestion is acute because of non-delivery of units from CY post EID which are affecting vessel berth and sail scheduled. Also long queue of GEARLESS vsl is expected view only 01 berth /CCT1 in operation now.

Delayed shipments, Shut-outs & Cut and Run: Owing to Yard congestion import discharge from vessels has slowed down & unfinished laden export loading. Hence, sailing within the stipulated 72 hours timeframe is forcing majority of feeder vessel leaving behind exports at the quay.

Capacity on Mother Vessel: Feeder vessel misconnections due to off Pro Forma berthing & sailings are causing immediate mother vessels to sail underutilized and over press subsequent vessels.

Bad weather impact :

Mostly cloudy with scattered showers going on from yesterday. More rain is in the forecast for coming days.

After “EID Holiday” DAC Airport situation is normal as of now. But we are expecting due to Chittagong Port Congestion air cargo flow will Increase in coming days.

NOTE: Kindly note that Govt of India has implemented New Tax System called GST in India from 1st July 2017.
So many changes and new rules are created for Export and Import from/for India.

  • In case any Exporters taking benefits from local Authorities / Govt, need to register themselves with local GST Dept. and need to take one Certificate in case they are taking Canvat and other tax benefits or not.
  • In case Exporters, not able to provide this certificate, their shipment will hold with customs on final stage.
  • Most of the exporters are involved and taking benefits from customs so we expected their shipments can be hold.
  • In case any Exporters not taking benefits from local Authorities / Govt, shipments can be plan without any hassle.
