Update on Chittagong Port Situation / Canada – Transpacific Eastbound GRI Update

Date:     October 14, 2016

Subject: Update on Chittagong Port Situation

The Transport Ministry commissioned committee presented a report on their findings to the Government on October 13th. As a result of their findings and recommendations the Government was able to finalize a deal with the Trailer/ Trucker Association. Therefore the ensuing strike has been called off.

Delmar will handle and expedite shipments as events allow, however some delays can be expected due to ongoing congestion at the port and until feeder schedules return to normal.
