    Garment exporters today urged the Roads and Highways Department to carry out repair work on the Langabandh Bridge in Sonargaon on the Dhaka-Chittagong Highway during the upcoming Eid holiday.

    The current completion schedule from July 12th to July 14th will prevent easy shipping from the Chattogram port, they said.

    All trucks and lorries loaded from Chattogram Harbor in Dhaka and surrounding areas will need an additional 100 km on an alternative route if repairs to the bridge begin, the BGMEA said in a statement.

    It will also delay the shipment of RMG cargo and increase the risk of losing on-time shipment, according to the statement.

    At a meeting, the leaders of the Bangladeshi Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) and the Van Covered Truck Owners Association of Bangladesh (BTCVOA) also called for increased vigilance by law enforcement services on the Dhaka-Chattagram highway to prevent products from being exported. from The trucks and covered trucks are connected to the port of Satogram.

    At the meeting held at the BGMEA office in Dhaka, they also urged the government to increase the vigilance of law enforcement agencies, including highways, the Rapid Reaction Battalion and the district police, also on the Mirpur-Dhowr road.

    BGMEA leaders have asked BTCVOA to ensure that the GPS tracker is installed on all trucks as a measure to stop theft during transport.

    They called on the leaders of the association to repair the freight and covered trucks fare and to avoid arbitrary transport fare hikes.

    They urged all garment factories to retain photos of drivers, assistants and travel documents, including truck licenses and covered trucks, as a precautionary measure, the BGMEA statement said.
