New terminal to allow Sihanoukville port to process bigger loads

Sihanoukville Autonomous Port (PAS) will launch a new multipurpose terminal on June 25, able to load shipments weighing in the range of 40,000-50,000 tonnes. This is more than twice the limit of existing terminals.

Construction of the new terminal began in early 2015 using a soft loan from the Japanese development agency JICA. The final cost will be more than $70 million.
“Goods will be delivered on time in a shorter period which will strengthen the business’s competitiveness,” said Cambodia Freight Forwarders Association (CFFA) President Sin Chanthy.

Late last year, PAS unveiled part of its expansion project for the construction of a new container terminal in early 2019 and to complete by the end of 2022 after signing an agreement for a low-interest loan of some $209 million.
