Port update: Shipments rise through Phnom Penh

Port update
FREIGHT shipments through Phnom Penh Autonomous Port rose by 35 percent in August, compared to the same month last year.

Port data showed that 6,932 containers were shipped through the port to and from the Vietnamese deep water port Cai Mep last month, compared to only 5,133 TEUs in the same month last year.

Hei Bavy, director general of the Phnom Penh Port, said the increase was a result of rising shipments of goods such as construction materials for hydroelectric dams and rail parts.

“We hope that the port will continue to experience growth in shipments next month because Cambodia’s economy is in stable situation, which will lead to growing demand,” said Hei Bavy.

From January to August, the port shipped 40,306 containers in and out, a 46.75 percent increase compared to 27,465 in the same period last year.
