According to the Mandalay Region Marine Administration Department, 23 cargo vessels were able to export 21,697.78 tonnes of cargo and 900 gravel pits from Mandalay Port to Yangon, Bhamo and other cities during the first week of November.
A total of 23 cargo vessels that exported goods such as millet, cement, coal, and gravel from Mandalay Port to Yangon, Bhamo and other cities were able to export 15,775.58 tonnes of cement, 3,700 tonnes of coal, 2,222.2 tonnes of corn, and 900 suddles of gravel from 1 to 8 November.
Due to the increase in the number of goods to be exported at Mandalay Port, the vessels should not load more than the specified tonnage, and the vessels may be dangerous if they carry goods that are not proportionate to the size of the vessel and travel in the river.
Officials have informed that vessels coming from Mandalay Port must pay attention to the navigational signals that have been erected on the water and on the shore to ensure safe navigation.
