India: Cargo movement faces difficulties

Saturday, 25 August 2018 | 00:00

The Nepal-bound containers that are shipped from the Kolkata Port, in India, have been facing a number of problems at the Indian port. Delay in clearance, lengthy documentation procedures and a lack of timely availability of rakes are the key problems identified by Nepali traders that has made trading costs significantly high. The Kolkata Port receives around 400-600 Nepal-bound containers every week. Of these, only around 335 containers arrive at the Dry Port in Sirsiya, Birgunj. This delay in movement of Nepal-bound containers has been compelling importers to pay demurrage charges, which has pushed logistics costs.
