Chittagong breaks record, tops 2 million TEU a year sooner than targeted

THE Chittagong Port Authority has announced that their 2016 container throughput target of two million TEU was entirely achieved in 2015, reports the Dhaka Tribune.

The container capacity of the port has increased to 40,000 TEU from 30,000 TEU because of a rise in container handling by 700,000 TEU in last three years, he added.
