Western Marine: Keel Laid for Inland Container Vessel

Construction works on the new 176 TEUs container vessel are in full swing at Western Marine shipyard (Bangladesh).

The ship will be built under German class Germanischer Lloyd (GL) and owner of the ship is Aryan Traders Ltd. She will carry containers from Chittagong Port to the newly developed Pangaon Inland Container Terminal (PICT) in Narayanganj.

Statistics say that last year Chittagong port received 15lac TEUs of containers which is also growing by 15% per annum, reaching an optimum level of 30lac in the coming years. 90% of these goods are transferred to various destinations within the country either by rail or road. Launching of inland container ships will shift this overload from our highways to the river route.
