Save Navigation at Chittagong !:  The ways how we serve in Bangladesh.

Once Appointed to assist your forthcoming vessel to Bangladesh, we enter into communication with master well in advance to update him with HW tide time, pilot boarding time, anchorage area etc. We understand the emergency in shipping and we respond within 15 minutes for any email, whether it is for an appointment or looking for loss prevention measures, which is completely FREE.
Indeed, communication between vessels and land is easier today and more efficient because the local pilot is a native language speaker and aware of the anchorage locations and available limitations for maneuvering. We communicate to Port Control directly from the vessel and from shore even while assisting any vessel for safe navigation from Kutubdia or shifting within anchorage areas.

WHAT WE DO! 

We guide master if notified earlier, so that master can bring vessel at a suitable location or pilot boarding station in time.  As regards our service, please note the following-

  • 24 hours per day, 365 days per year on an on-demand basis pilotage service are available. Just need the vessel’s location and advance notice.
  • Shipowners are requested to communicate us well in advance especially for monsoon season.
  • Service provided “First Come First Serve Basis”.
  • Email us at info@chittagongpilots.com minimum 24 hours earlier to update master as regards the safety measures required at Kutubdia, pilot boarding point and coordinate pilot boarding program in time.

Hire us to guide master while shifting from Kutubdia/ Chittagong Port Anchorage when shipowners/vessel’s officials have a safety concern in respect of navigation.
