Eid ul Fitr is approaching on 21 or 22 April (subject to the appearance of the moon). It is expected there will be a huge rush as usual in CFS during Eid ul Fitr.
Our partner Expo Freight has advised it needs to take the necessary steps for Eid contingency planning, knowing there may be empty container shortages, a CFS rush and a shortage of labour before Eid. This is to ensure the smooth handling of shipments.
There may also be congestion at Chittagong port and vessel space issues.
In the interest of reducing the impact on cargo receiving, planning, unloading and stuffing within this timeframe, Expo has reshuffled its regular CFS cut off.
