It is located 72 miles (100 km) north of the Bay of Bengal and is connected to major inland river ports and the railway terminal at Khulna.
The port was built 11 miles (18 km) upstream of the Pashur River from Chalna. When the port was opened to foreign ships on December 11, 1950, a British merchant ship made its first anchor at the port. The port was shifted to Mongla in 1954 as it was more convenient for sea-going ships to anchor. At that time Mongla port came to be known as Chalna for a long time. During the Pakistan period, a port manager was entrusted with the administrative responsibility of Mongla Port, which was headquartered in Khulna. The port was frequently closed in later times, especially since the 1970s, due to the loss of sea-going depth, and each time it was excavated, it was reopened to anchorage.
The port has connections to almost all major ports in the world, although most ships here come from Asia, the Middle East, Australia, Europe and North America. Sometimes some ships come from countries in Latin America or Africa.
Currently the port is open 24 hours a day, ships up to 225 meters long can enter the port for unloading goods. About 400 ships dock at this port every year and an average of 3 million metric tons of goods are imported and exported annually. The port has 11 jetties, 6 sheds and 6 warehouses for loading and unloading goods. There are 12 floating anchorages deep in the river. Mongla Port Authority has built a rest house for sailors at Hiran Point.
On December 1, 1950, the second seaport of the country was launched at Mongla in Bagerhat under the name of Chalna Port. When the port was opened to foreign ships on December 11 of that year, British merchant ships anchored at the port for the first time.
