Jakarta, June 21, 2024 – The Groundbreaking Ceremony for the development of a Container Scanner was held by IPC Terminal Petikemas at Terminal 3 International, Tanjung Priok Port, North Jakarta. The construction of this scanner marks a strategic step for IPC TPK in enhancing efficiency, effectiveness, and ensuring the security of container inspections in the future, focusing on procedural and cost aspects, as well as optimizing container loading and unloading services.

“IPC TPK is committed to integrating technology into port services and improving the speed of container handling through digitization and facility development. Today marks the beginning of the construction of the container scanner, which will be phased, and we will also establish a Joint Gate,” said Guna Mulyana, President Director of IPC TPK.

The development of the container scanner aligns with the mandate of Minister of Finance Regulation No. 109/PMK.04/2020 concerning Customs and Logistic Technology Areas.

Moreover, this development underscores IPC TPK’s commitment to adapting to technological advancements, particularly in the logistics sector.

Planning and preparation for the construction of the container scanner began in January 2024. It started with site surveys, measurements, hangar relocation, and traffic flow simulations to ensure smooth cargo handling operations. Subsequently, installation of supporting devices such as the Command Center Room, electrical networks, fiber optic lines from the Analyst Room to the container scanner, and the actual construction of the scanner will follow.
