Bangladesh Waterways


River or lake cargo operations are an important source of transportation facilitating trade across the length and breadth of the country. A majority of the districts in Bangladesh have river facilities, which makes transportation a possibility in most months of the year. River transport is used mostly to transport dense cargo such as fertilizers, bricks, sand, mortar, coal, sand, cement clinkers and food grains. Further fuel products such as Diesel, Gasoline, Kerosene are transported in barges to fuel depots located within the vicinity of the ports. Cost of transporting cargo through river ports is cheaper as compared to road and rail transport which makes river transportation the most suitable form of transportation for dense cargo.
