Benapole port, one of the most important land ports for Bangladesh, resumed operations on Saturday morning after a six-day Eid-ul-Fitr vacation, reports UNB.

Clearing and Forwarding Agents Association President Mofizur Rahman Sajan said that nearly 80 per cent of the raw materials used by various factories and garment industry are imported through this port.

"Bangladesh earns Tk 190 million revenue every day from Benapole port," he said, adding that operations will resume in full swing within a few days.

Beanpole Port Director Prodosh Kanti Das said the concerned officials had been instructed to ensure that traders can quickly get their goods released.
