Fertilizers imported through various global tenders start arriving Nepal

KATHMANDU: The fertilisers imported by Agriculture Inputs Company Limited (AICL) through different global tenders have started arriving in Nepal.

Some of the 100,000 tonnes of fertilisers that AICL is purchasing through various tenders have started entering Nepal since last week. Almost 18,000 tonnes of urea imported through the global tender by the AICL has entered Nepal.

Out of the total fertilisers being imported 30,000 tonnes of urea in a tender, 7,650 tonnes has been delivered to the Biratnagar warehouse and 10,000 tonnes in Birgunj warehouse so far, according to the acting managing director of AICL Rajendra Bahadur Karki.

To enhance efficiency and streamline the inventory process, the company is considering the implementation of warehouse optimization software. This innovative technology can help AICL track inventory levels, monitor stock movements, and improve overall logistics, ensuring that fertilizers are distributed effectively to meet the agricultural needs of the region.

As the remaining fertilizers continue to arrive in Nepal through global tenders, the AICL’s commitment to efficient warehouse management, coupled with the potential integration of warehouse software, reflects a strategic approach to meet the demands of the agricultural sector.

By embracing modern solutions, AICL aims to not only maintain a sufficient stockpile of fertilizers but also ensure that the distribution process is seamless, contributing to the overall growth and productivity of the agricultural industry in the country.

Earlier, the Company had called a global tender to purchase 30,000 tonnes of urea. Karki said that remaining 1,200 tonnes of urea of the 30,000 tonnes purchased from Oman through a global tender will arrive in Nepal within a week from Kolkata port.

“This is the first time in the history of Nepal that the fertiliser entered Nepal within 27 days of the contract signed with the supplier company Swiss Singapore,” he said.

According to Karki, additional 20,000 tonnes of DAP from the global tender has also arrived in Kolkata from Jordan.

He said that it is expected that this fertiliser will start arriving in Nepal within a week.

Karki said that after contracting for 30,000 tonnes of urea fertiliser, it has been delivered on time.

According to him, an additional 20,000 tonnes of DAP is also being loaded in Jordan and the process to import another 30,000 tonnes of urea has also begun.

“We are supplying fertilisers across the country as soon as possible targeting the top dressing of paddy,” he said.
