Agility Cambodia will offer services to both locally-based and network customers operating in Cambodia, with a range of air freight, sea freight, customs clearance, warehousing and local distribution solutions including cross border trucking service initially connecting Ho Chi Minh and Bangkok to Phnom Penh, followed by services linking South China. Agility Cambodia will also focus on other key sectors including project logistics in the oil and gas sector and fairs and events.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Agility has a great opportunity to develop the Cambodian market as demand is growing for a broad range of freight and logistics services. We are seeing a significant increase in international trade from Cambodia to the US and Europe, as well as to the rest of Asia. We have also seen an increase in cross border trade within Indochina and between ASEAN countries,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Mike Gildea, CEO, Agility, Southeast Asia.
Cambodia has a population of more than 14 million and imports most of its retail/FMCG/ construction material from the two neighboring countries of Vietnam and Thailand. The clothing and garment sector is important in the country and Cambodia exported 60 per cent of its textile production to the US market and 30 per cent to the EU market in 2009, and this sector is still growingquickly, said Gildea.
