Bangladesh's exports for the fiscal year 2022 have reached a historical record of 52 billion USD due to the steady growth of its strong RMG sector, which has resulted in a 34.3% increase in export earnings compared to the previous year. RMG is a significant contributor to the country's exports, accounting for over 80% of all exports. The top markets for RMG are the United States, Germany, Spain, France and the United Kingdom.

“With Bangladesh being the second-largest readymade garments exporter in the world, businesses must ensure that they employ the right supply chain solutions to ensure that their exports can reach consumers in a cost efficient and timely manner. These facilities will support the growth of less than container load shipments especially from the rising demand of e-commerce,” added Feroz Jahangir, COO & Head of Value Added Services, DHL Global Forwarding Bangladesh.

DHL Global Forwarding has constructed state-of-the-art CFS facilities in Chittagong, Bangladesh's largest seaport city. This strategic location provides quick access to Chittagong Port, which handles over 92% of the country's import-export trade. This expansion will enable goods to be shipped out promptly on ocean freight. Additionally, the dedicated facilities incorporate green operations to reduce carbon emissions.
