Severe congestion at Cambodia’s top port hitting feeder services

Congestion at Cambodia’s top port is creating supply chain disruptions. In a note to clients, German containerline Hapag-Lloyd noted that terminal productivity at Sihanoukville port has deteriorated due to port and yard congestion. Feeder services and turnaround times are affected and feeder space is tight.

In an effort for medium term improvement of this situation, the port is building an extended yard for additional storage space.

“Before the new container yard is completed, port congestion may persist,” Hapag-Lloyd warned.
