The Chittagong Port is the principal seaport of Bangladesh handling about 92% of import-export trade of the country. As such its importance in the national economy is paramount. The Chittagong Port Authority (CPA) is a basic services provider. Its objective focuses mainly on providing necessary services and facilities to the port users efficiently and effectively at competitive price.
Considering the growing need of containerization the CPA has developed the New Mooring Container Terminal (NCT) in the port adjacent to existing container terminal CCT.
