Transport ministry rules that all cargo carriers must register with Port EDI system

The Ministry of Public Works and Transport has decided that all cargo ships unloading or picking up goods in Cambodia must register through the Port Electronic Data Interchange (Port EDI) system, an electronic data exchange system which manages large-scale inbound and outbound cargo traffic at the Phnom Penh Autonomous Port and Sihanoukville Autonomous Port.

The decision was made at a meeting on February 23 to review the system, led by ministry secretary of state Eang Veng Sun.

“The meeting has decided to require all commercial cargo carriers entering the territory of the Kingdom of Cambodia to submit a request through the Port EDI,” the ministry said on February 23.

The ministry said the meeting had looked into new methods and new tools in the operation of the system and their challenges.

Veng Sun said that Port EDI is a large-scale modernization effort for the navigation of inbound and outbound traffic control. Instead of filling in forms by hand it makes the management of cargo more effective, transparent, saving time and cost effective.
