As the country and the world begin steps to recover from the economic slump and supply chain disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, Sihanoukville Autonomous Port has begun to record an increase in traffic.
According to the Statistics of Goods Transit at Sihanoukville Autonomous Port, the number of containers passing through the port was 198,182 Twenty-foot Equivalent Unit (TEUs) in the first quarter of 2022, an increase of 16.32 percent compared to the same period in 2021.
The port has served as a transit and transport point for goods to countries such as Japan, South Korea and Singapore. It is an important part of Cambodia’s economic and social development.
The Royal Government plans to further develop the port. The planned development will allow almost all large container vessels to ship directly from Sihanoukville Port to Asia Pacific, Europe and the United States without need for a transit point.
