Vizag Port of­fers di­rect link to Chi­nese ports

Maritime Gateway - - News -

Visakhapatnam Port has urged Nepali traders to make more use of the sea­port as the cost of fer­ry­ing goods from there is lower. The fre­quency at which cargo trains are leav­ing the port for Nepal in­di­cates un­der­util­i­sa­tion of the port. Although Visakhapatnam Port is lo­cated quite far away from Nepal, it of­fers lower sea freight costs, and freight for­warders do not have to pay var­i­ous charges such as de­ten­tion cost, de­mur­rage cost and many other for­mal and in­for­mal charges. “The low sea freight cost due to di­rect link with Chi­nese ports, and low port charges will work as com­pen­sa­tion for Nepali traders wor­ried about higher cost em­a­nat­ing from longer dis­tance,” said Ashok Ku­mar Te­mani, Chair­man of Road Trans­port and Tran­sit Com­mit­tee at the Fed­er­a­tion of Nepalese Cham­bers of Com­merce and In­dus­try.
