Tan Cang Moc Bai Dry Port (ICD) - A milestone in system expansion, bringing port closer to customers. A complete logistics solution for cargo in Tay Ninh province and Vietnam - Cambodia border area

The status of exporting – importing market between Vietnam – Cambodia and the transportation of cargoes

According to the survey done by the Ministry of Economy and Finance of Cambodia, the trade turnover between two countries has increased by 4.77 billion dollars over the past 9 months, an increase of 3 percent over the same period in 2022. Currently, Vietnam is Cambodia’s third largest international trading counterpart (after China and the USA) and Cambodia’s second largest exporting market (after the USA). The above indicators show Cambodia is not only a close neighbor, but also the largest trading partner of Vietnam.
Mr. Vo Duc Trong - Permanent Vice Chairman of the Tay Ninh Provincial People's Committee, delivered remarks at the ceremony

Trading items of two countries are diverse, for the direction from Cambodia to Vietnam includes paddy, rice, rubber, cashew nuts, cassava, corn, bananas, mangoes and natural resources, etc… and in return, there are products such as iron and steel, fertilizer, petroleum and machinery equipment. The above items require the high quality of goods’ preservation in containers. However, the infrastructure for exchanging commodities between these two nations is not proportional to the potentiality. 

A manufacturing factory in the Special Economic Zone (Special Economic Zone - SEZ) of Qilu Cambodia, who wants to export goods via port in Ho Chi Minh City, will need to spend about 12-14 hours to pick up empty containers, stuff, and transport laden containers for unloading at the Ho Chi Minh City area, whereas long-distance transporting to collect and return containers is one of the difficult problems. In addition, traveling long distances through many routes, which has curfew for container trucks, traffic jams, border gates closing after 10:00 p.m., and limited quality of empty containers, making supply chain operations more challenging. Furthermore, the lack of centralized customs clearance points for cargo in transit complicates customs procedures and lacks coordination between the two countries' customs. The difficult issues raised affect the cargo transferring process of exporters on Cambodia's side, while the commodities have a high shipping standard for speed and quality of preservation.
