Steps to clear delay at Walayar checkpost

Covai Post Network

Following concerns from manufacturers and exporters from the region, the Cochin Port Trust (CPT) has started talks with various authorities to reduce cargo clearance delay at the Walayar checkpost.

The CPT chairman Paul Antony held a meeting with the heads of various departments last week, the CEO of International Container Transshipment Terminal (ICCT), Kochi, Shibu said.

During a meeting with the Port Trust officials, exporters have been complaining that they incur losses and extraordinary delay due to the slow-paced clearance at the checkpost. The Port Trust authorities have tried to reduce the delay by opening more counters.
