About 90 percent of exports and imports in the country last year were made on cargo ships, CAMFFA president Sin Chanthy said, explaining that maritime transport is up to three times cheaper than air freight.
According to data from the Ministry of Commerce, the total value of exported goods in 2018 was $11.2 billion, while imports were valued at $13.7 billion, a 5.7 year-on-year hike.
Most shipments in or out of Cambodia are done by local freight forwarders, Mr Chanthy said, adding that there are over 400 such companies in the Kingdom but that only 80 are CAMFFA members.
