Nepal & Bhutan

NEPAL

Nepal is land blocked country therefore does not have any sea port and all movements take place thru Calcutta / Haldia port. 

The Calcutta port of India is about 1150 km from Nepalese border.

However, some shipping lines have their container depots at Nepal

All import cargoes bound for Nepal are examined & passed from Calcutta under ctd [customs transhipment document].

At the Nepal entry border- raxual / birgunj, again cargo is appraised and duty is realised at Nepal entry border.

Excepting for LCL & o.d.c. / break bulk cargoes - all fcl cargoes are carted out from Calcutta by trailors to birgunj & de-stuffed there – for onward carriage by trucks to ultimate destination in Nepal.

Since most of the Nepal locations are situated in hilly regions – logistic constraints are there in adverse weather conditions.

The prime concern in Nepal cargo is availability of original documents in time and which results in enormous port rent, ground rent and container detentions. Therefore, it is imperative that a free time of 21 days is secured and documents secured prior to arrival of cargo at disport.
