Today, I want to discuss with all of you how to transport goods from China to Cambodia. This involves many complex logistics processes and requires freight forwarders' expertise and professional skills. As freight forwarders, we are like dancers in this logistics stage, responsible for ensuring goods' safe and smooth delivery to Cambodia. Let's travel through this logistics channel together and learn more about shipping from China to Cambodia!

Choice of Transportation Mode

When selecting a transportation mode from China to Cambodia, several factors need to be considered, including transit time, cost, and the nature of the goods. Here is a detailed introduction to sea freight, air freight, and truck cross-border transportation.

Sea Freight from China to Cambodia

Sea freight is the most common shipping method from China to Cambodia.

Sea freight is typically suitable for bulk or large-sized goods, although it has a longer transit time. However, shipping schedules can be planned through regular flights or routes. Compared to other modes of transportation, sea freight generally has lower costs.

Transit time: Sea freight usually takes longer, depending on the distance between the origin and destination ports, typically around 1-2 weeks. However, with proper route planning and scheduling, on-time delivery can be ensured.

Air Freight from China to Cambodia

Air freight is one of the fastest transportation methods for urgent or time-sensitive goods. However, air freight is generally more expensive due to the high cost of air transportation and related fees.

No matter where your items are located, JIKE Logistics can air freight them from China to Cambodia, ensuring your business operations can proceed as usual. If your goods are less than 2 cubic meters and weigh less than 200 kilograms or if you need to send/receive goods urgently, air freight is the most cost-effective mode of transportation.

Cambodia currently has four major international airports:

Phnom Penh International Airport

Siem Reap International Airport

Sihanoukville International Airport

Cross-border trucking from China to Cambodia

Truck cross-border transportation is another option for shipping goods from China to Cambodia.

Land transportation is generally suitable for neighboring regions or shorter distances, as it is usually faster than sea or air transportation. Land transportation costs are relatively lower, especially for small-scale goods and short-distance transportation. The specific transit time depends on the route and traffic conditions.

If your supplier is located near the Cambodian border or if the final destination of your goods is in the upper part of the country, truck transportation will be the most convenient choice.

Customs Clearance in Cambodia

Customs clearance in Cambodia is an essential part of the process when goods enter or leave the country and is an integral part of international trade. As a freight forwarder, I am familiar with Cambodia's customs clearance procedures and requirements. Let me introduce them to you.

Firstly, Cambodia's customs clearance process must comply with relevant laws and regulations. The import and export of goods must comply with Cambodia's import and export control laws and be declared and approved according to the requirements of the relevant authorities. Therefore, before goods enter Cambodia, we must prepare necessary documents such as commercial invoices, packing lists, and bills of lading, and go through inspections and approvals by customs officials.

Secondly, Cambodian customs have strict inspection and verification procedures. When goods pass through Cambodian customs, they may undergo commodity inspections, security checks, and tariff calculations. Commodity inspections may require testing the goods' quality, specifications, and standards to ensure compliance with Cambodian requirements. Additionally, Cambodian customs may conduct security checks on specific goods to ensure their safety and compliance. Furthermore, customs will calculate and collect tariffs and taxes during the import and export process, which is also an important aspect of customs clearance.

Finally, the speed and efficiency of Cambodian customs are also important considerations for freight forwarders. Cambodian customs procedures may be relatively complex and time-consuming compared to other countries. Therefore, as freight forwarders, we must maintain close communication and cooperation with Cambodian customs to ensure smooth customs clearance and minimize time and cost wastage.

In summary, customs clearance in Cambodia is an integral part of international trade. As a freight forwarder, we will comply with relevant laws and regulations, assist clients in customs clearance procedures, and ensure smooth customs clearance for goods entering or leaving Cambodia. We strive to provide efficient and reliable services, ensuring the timely delivery of goods to clients and creating greater value for their trade activities.
