Local News: Sri Lanka Ports Authority (SLPA) yesterday reiterated that the prevailing COVID-19 restrictions are no obstacle to release vehicles imported at the port.
SLPA also said local importers have been offered facilities to release the already imported, containerized vehicles from the premises of the Port of Colombo.
About 400 destuffed vehicles are already parked at the East Container Terminal (ECT) of the Port of Colombo, whilst a considerable number have been parked at the Unity Container Terminal (UCT). At present, this has also created an unpleasant situation for the terminal management of the port. Therefore, SLPA urges all importers to clear these vehicles immediately from the port premises.
