Mongla Port Provides facilities and services to the international shipping lines and other concerned agencies providing shore-based facilities like jetties, go downs, cargo handling equipment and maintaining adequate water depth in the channel as well as making provision for safe day and night shipping. Even if, in theory, there should be a ratio of 60 – 40 % between Chattogram and Mongla, the reality so far from that with Chattogram currently totalizing 92% of the country’s international trade.

One Stop Service
One Stop service is being operational in the Jetty area. In this, all departments who are directly involved in the Operation are being in one room. Therefore, the port users need not to move from one department to the other department in order to get their job done. This has created a very user-friendly environment and the activities have become easier and speedy.
Pilotage to the Port
The Pilotage ground extends from the fairway buoy, approximately at position Lat. 21026.9'N Long. 89034.4'E, to the northern limit of the port (Up to a line drawn between Lat. 22038.00' N Long. 89020.00' E and Lat. 22038.00' N Long. 89040.00' E).
The sharply defined "Swatch of No Ground" - the northern tip of which almost touching the pilotage ground, a nature’s boon to the mariners is approaching this port. A fairly accurate position of vessels can be obtained by watching the Echo-Sounder indicating entry of vessel into the "Swatch of No ground". It is usual for the navigators making approaches from Kolkata and Chattogram to proceed between 20- and 30-meter contour which is quite well defined and converge on the northern most tip of the “Swatch of No Ground ".
The lighted Buoy painted “MONGLA FAIRWAY" and fitted with a radar reflector flashing white light every 10 seconds, makes the approach to the Pilotage ground reasonably easy and safe.
From the ' fairway buoy' to pilotage ground (Near Hiron Point) the channel is marked by 9 pairs of lighted buoys with radar reflectors. Masters of vessels before approaching the pilotage ground should await instructions from the Hiron point pilot stations. Mariners are cautioned that they may have to take appropriate corrective measures as the vessels are likely to set towards North-West during flood tide.
Ship approaching Mongla Port will send their ETA and draft to their respective agents and to PORT KHULNA vis Khulna Radio (Call sign S3E) at least 24 hrs. before their actual time of arrival at the Fairway Buoy. On receipt of the ETA directly from the ship the pilot is detailed in order of priority of arrivals. Further instructions are issued by the pilot himself on VHF. On or before arrival at the Fairway Buoy, the Master is to contact the Hiron Point Pilot Station on W/T (Call sign S3K) or on channel 16 on VHF for bar crossing instructions. It must be emphasized that the instructions so received should be repeated by the ship receiving such messages. The banks of the river are stable and have continuous belt of forest with small creeks at places throughout the passage up to the Mongla Harbor area. The controlling bar at the entrance of Pussur River has a minimum datum depth of 6.0 M. This sets limit to the draft of ships entering and leaving Mongla Port.
Tides and semi diurnal with spring rise between max. 2.80 M. in winter to max. 3.35 M. in Monsoon. Tidal stations at Hiron Point, Joymonirgol and Mongla are maintained for observation and record of daily tides. Unlike other riverine ports of the Bay of Bengal there are no incidents of bore tides or freshets. During Monsoon the Hinterland Rivers are in spate and current may attain strength up to 6 knots. The bottom is mainly of mud and fine sand.
The channel is marked by buoys at various points conical shapes to be passed on the starboard hand and can shapes on the port hand when entering with the mainstream of flood. Weather is mainly tropical with very mild winter with minimum temperature of 8'C and humidity 95% and during south westerly monsoon from June to August causing rainfall of average 200 cm. Tropical revolving storm is formed in the Bay of Bengal during the preceding (April-May) and succeeding (Sept-Oct.) two months of Monsoon. The intensity of the storm is lost on reaching the port after crossing the coast and the Sundarbans. A common weather feature is the Norwester in the months of March and April which are typical thunderstorms of very short duration usually occurring at dusk with squally winds up to 40kts.

Food Handling Arrangements
Mongla Port is not very well equipped for the bulk grain handling. There are no vacuators, silo facilities and bagging machines at the port. No silo terminal at port level. But a small silo of 500 MT exists in Khulna and recently big modern silo is at Joymonir goal has been established.
Mongla Port Silo
In order to have Safe Storage Facilities of Food grains a modern Silo has been built at Joymonirgol, 17 km south of Mongla Port. The silo has a storage capacity of 50,000 MT in 30 different bins. The area is fully equipped with an Independent Jetty along with all types of handling facilities. So Mongla port is now fully ready to accept any quantity of imported food grains.
Reefer Cargo Arrangements
Reefer cargo particularly export of frozen shrimps is predominant through this port. In the container yard no. 1 & 2 there are 160 plug points to connect reefer containers. Electricity is being supplied from electric substations to the reefer container. For constant and uninterrupted power supply MPA has its own generators which are capable to supply power to 40 containers. Provision of 110 volt power supply for reefer container is also available in the container yard.
Port Development Trend
In Bangladesh, the industries are in and around Dhaka-Chattogram. The business community of Dhaka and its surrounding areas is less interested to import and export their cargo through Mongla Port because of lack of fair roads and bridges connection. The present government has given emphasis for the development of Mongla Port and pushes the construction of the Padma Bridge at Mawa point. When Padma bridge will be operational, the distance from Dhaka to Mongla will be 170 Km. So, the business community of Dhaka and its surrounding areas will be more interested to use Mongla Port for importing & exporting cargos as the transportation distance from Dhaka to Mongla will be shorter than Dhaka to Chattogram.
At present, Jute & jute goods, frozen cargo and other general cargo are exported from Mongla port. Moreover, import of heavy machinery & equipment, fertilizer, food grain, sugar, motor vehicles, raw materials of industry etc. through Mongla Port will increase. As a matter of consequence, the act of establishing different types of new industries in the south-western part of the country, scope of huge employment, expansion of trade & business and overall activities of Mongla Port will increase and develop rapidly.
