Why Shipowners require PROTECTIVE AGENTS
Discharge port agents are appointed by Charterer and nominated by a receiver. Shipowners need assistance at Chittagong( Chattagram as renamed), Mongla or even Payra to protect the interest. As in most of cases, a vessel may face the following situation/ incident and require professional support:
- Collision, grounding or wrongful navigation by pilots
- Delay in discharge or placement of lighter vessel or berthing
- Communication gap with voyage charterer’s or receiver’s nominated agents
- Discharge without production of OBL and delivery to ultimate receivers
- Excessive port DA and manipulated SOF to protect the interest of cargo receiver
- Damage to mother vessel by lighters and excessive repair charges
- Wrongful treatment for injured crews, complication during crew change etc.
- In time berthing arrangement or sailing arrangements.
Maritime Ports in Bangladesh | Chittagong, Mongla, Payra
The Chittagong port is the biggest seaport of Bangladesh. It is located by the estuary of the Karnaphuli River in Patenga, Chittagong. Recently, Chittagong city has been renamed as Chattagram. Earlier, 8.5m was the permissible draft to enter the inner harbor. Now Port allow berthing of ships with a draught of up to 9.5 meters during high tide.
Mongla Sea Port is the second largest and most Eco-friendly port of Bangladesh. It is located on the southwestern part of the country, at the confluence of Pussur River and Mongla Nulla. Approximately 71 nautical miles (131 Km.) upstream of the Bay of Bengal. For berthing at inner harbor, this port allows vessels with a draught of up to 7-8 meters.
Payra Port, the small seaport in southern Bangladesh, sits on the west bank of Rabnabad channel at the confluence of Galachipa-Tetulia river. Payra Port started operation in August’2016 with ship-to-ship cargo transfer, though on a limited scale. It is expected that the first phase of dredging for this port will be completed by 2020. Then vessels with a draught of up to 11 meters will be able to berth at the seaport during high tide time. Bangladesh is now the concern for a deep-sea port and had granted a contract to Japan to build a deep sea port at Matarbari, which is just 25 kilometers away from Chittagong.
