Bangladesh Plans Direct Shipping Route To Slovenia

The volume of readymade garments shipped from Bangladesh to Europe might be greatly increased by opening a direct shipping route from Chattogram port to the Port of Koper in Slovenia, according to the RMG exporters.


In addition, the leaders of the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) stated at a meeting with the Chattogram Port Authority (CPA) and a delegation from the Koper port that if the Chattogram-Koper route is launched, the time required for transporting goods from Bangladesh to the European countries will decrease by 15-20 days.


In order to investigate the possibilities of a direct shipping route from Chattogram port to the Port of Koper, representatives of the two ports and the BGMEA met at the Chattogram Port Building. At the event, Borut Semrl, manager (sales) at Port of Koper, said the port in Slovenia is associated with Hinterland Container Market, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Poland, Italy, Czech Republic, Germany, Croatia, Bosnia, Herzegovina, and Serbia.
