Cambodia Post pricing during COVID-19
Cambodia Post said the rated would increase from August 2020 by as much as $8 per kg for the duration of COVID-19 using it’s EMS (Express Mail Service).
The demand is obviously high- on Monday 3rd August 2020 when services resumed, Cambodia Post received 2,810kg of mail from 373 customers.
“We expect our revenue to remain strong or register an upward spiral towards our $1 million per month ambition by virtue of the substantial Covid-19 era surge in online orders,” Bora said. Cambodia Post earned more than $2.65 million from January – June 2020.
In 2019 it earned revenues of between $11-12 million (which was a decrease from $13.81 million revenue total in 2018).
In July 2020, the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications (MPT) said it is also reviewing and revising a draft law on the Cambodian postal sector. In 2020, there are more than 40 postal service providers licensed in Cambodia.
