Rodella 1
Mr. Golam Sarwar, MD of Prantik Group wrote to BD Mariners (Group E-Mail of Bangladeshi Mariners Community) :  Pleased to inform our vessel Rodella (80m x 15m x 5.2m, 2581 dwt, 128 teus at 3.5m draft, class RINA, Ship owners p&I) took berth at 1100 hrs 19th March 2015 at Chittagong Port jetty NCT 2 to load containers for Kolkata port.
Completed loading of 120 teus boxes for Kolkata on 20th March 1530 hrs. Sailed out 2030 hrs, ETA Kolkata pilot station 2000 hrs, 21st March. Expecting return from Kolkata and arrival Chittagong on 24th March with laden containers. Importers / Exporters need not bring their cargoes through Singapore, Port Klang, or Colombo.  Rodella will run weekly round trip service. It will be quite a challenge to compete with big players!
Few photographs for viewing.  Bangla Vision and Independent tv broadcasted the news and daily newspapers like Prothom Alo, Financial Express, Azadi,  reported the news.
Rodella 2
With this Prantik enters into a new avenue – container feeder operation. Pls wish us luck, doa for a successful journey. I remember my 1st day of business some 17 years back when I just signed off from a OSM vessel as Chief Engineer. Very next day I started my business life as ship repairer. Shokar Alhamdulillah. All credits go to my Almighty Allah to steer me at this stage.
 He thanked to all business colleagues, friends, well-wishers for their utmost support and cooperation.
