Requirements & Recommendations for Ship Spare In Transit Delivery at Vessel at Chittagong, Mongla, or Anchorage in Bangladesh.

Panocean Limited is well experienced in handling ship spares. Whether it requires custom clearance or sourcing from local scrap vessel yards. Mostly spares come from Greece, Germany, China, Turkey, India to Bangladesh. The rules are applicable to all countries and would like to mention some issues which ship owners or spare suppliers should keep into consideration. 

01.    Ship’s sphere should be marked as Ship’s spare in Transit in AWBL.

02. It is recommended to send the Ship’s sphere in transit by Courier mode not under LC mode.  It should be mention as Ship Spares in Transit, Master of MV/ MT… C/O Shipping agents name who will be nominated to do the customs clearance of spares from Dhaka or Chittagong Airport.

02.    Customs authority prefers that spares need to arrive at Bangladesh airport after the vessel’s arrival at Chittagong or Mongla port ( Recommended). However, in many cases, we see that spares arrive at the airport before vessel arrival.

03.    Normally it takes 3 to 4 working days to release any ship’s spare. 

04.    Master needs to issue an email with the request to release the ship’s spares addressing the concerned agents so that the agents can provide the same to customs broker who ultimately will show this to local customs while declaring as ship’s spare. Informatively, concerned OPA  or agents will take the endorsement of attending customs officer at that email, issued by Master.

05.    Once the spare delivered at the vessel, the master needs to issue a note and endorsement of the delivery document, which once again will be submitted at Custom ( recommended as per local customs requirements).

Charges Involved- 

a.   Custom clearance charges including Govt VAT. 

b.  Courier charge from Dhaka to Chittagong
