'The railway had incurred losses while operating special parcel trains on Chittagong-Dhaka route. We struggled to manage fuel costs for operating the special parcel trains on the route'

Bangladesh Railway launched special parcel trains on   Chittagong-Jamalpur-Chittagong route on Wednesday to ensure a smoother supply of agricultural goods, vegetables, food and perishable items during the coronavirus pandemic. 

Confirming the matter to the Dhaka Tribune, Bangladesh Railway (East Zone) General Manager Nasir Uddin Ahmed said special parcel trains would ply on Chittagong-Jamalpur route every day from now on. 

“The railway had incurred losses while operating special parcel trains on Chittagong-Dhaka route. We struggled to manage fuel costs for operating the special parcel trains on the route,” said the GM.

Ratan Kumar Chowdhury, Manager of Chittagong Railway Station told the Dhaka Tribune the special parcel train with six carriages left Chittagong station for Jamalpur at 3:00pm today(yesterday).

Earlier on May 1, Bangladesh Railway launched special parcel trains on Chittagong-Dhaka-Chittagong route. On May 4, the railway authorities decided to suspend the operation of special parcel trains on Chittagong-Dhaka route due to poor response from the traders.

The movement of all passenger trains were suspended since March 25 in an effort to curb the spread of novel coronavirus.
