Waterways

Sihanouk Autonomous Port (SAP) is the country’s only deep seawater port and plays a significant role in the development of the economy.
With offshore oil field being developed nearby, a new multi-purpose terminal is planned, consisting of a supply base for the oil fields and a handling area for bulky materials such as wood chip or coal.

Current shipments through SAP include the export of garments and import of vehicles, machinery, construction material, electronics and raw material for garment manufacturing.

The port is preparing to be listed on the Cambodian Stock Exchange.

In addition to SAP, there are other smaller sea ports such Sre Ambel, Oknha Mong and Kamport Port – which is due to undergo expansion.
There are also plans to develop ports in Kiri Sakor, Koh Kong province (deep seawater port), Steung Hav of Preah Sihanouk province (international port) and Kep province (tourist port).

Inland Water Transportation

Cambodia’s inland water network consists of the Mekong River and its tributaries; the Tonle Sap and Bassac River.

The navigational segments of the network stretch to approximately 1,750 km in length during the rainy season. The Mekong River accounts for 30 percent of the total length, the Tonle Sap 15 percent, the Bassac River 5 percent, and other tributaries 50 percent.

Phnom Penh Autonomous Port (PPAP)

PPAP is the state-owned port and Cambodia’s second largest. Shipments included garments, agricultural products, construction materials, vehicles, and machinery and consumer products.

PPAP is building a new container terminal with a total capacity of 120,000 TECs per year. Construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2013.

The new port will alleviate some of the congestion at PPAP where only smaller vessels can dock. At present, PPAP handles barges, small container ships and oil tankers mainly from Vietnam. Goods exported through the port head down the Mekong River to Vietnam’s deep sea water port before onward shipping to overseas markets.

Once completed, the new port will end the need for shipment transers to larger vessels in Vietnam. It means that the imported goods can go directly to the capital rather stopping first in Sihanoukville and then travelling overland to Phnom Penh.
