BONDED cargo from Bangladesh was flown out of the Indian airport of Kolkata after EFL devised a scheme to handle bonded, cross-border, land-air transshipments between the two countries.

The idea could be realised because of the signing of the BBIN (Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal) agreement in 2016, which seeks to enhance co-operation between the countries. said London's Air Cargo News.



The EFL offices in Bangladesh and India collaborated in handling the cargo at the point of origin. The transfer of cargo weighing 4.1 tonnes from Bangladeshi trucks to Indian trucks took place at the Benapole (Dhaka) - Petrapole (India) border.



It moved in GPS enabled trucks to Kolkata airport and was air freighted to reach Europe within the stipulated time-frame.



Kolkata has now proven to be a useful transshipment gateway for inbound and outbound air transport to Bangladesh, said EFL Group CEO S Senthilnathan.
