Delivery and container transport has started in full swing from 8 am on Tuesday.

 Port Secretary Md. Omar Faruq said that even during the strike, special arrangements were made for the delivery and transportation of the port.  

Delivery is in full swing after the official announcement of the withdrawal of the strike.

 Sources said that on Friday, the first day of the transport strike in protest of the hike in fuel prices, delivery and transportation of containers from the depot to the port was normal but it was disrupted from Saturday to Monday.

 Due to untimely arrival of containers of export goods, several ships were forced to leave the port with less containers than the capacity and plan.
