Jakarta, February 19, 2024 – For the first time ever, IPC Terminal Petikemas in the Panjang Area, a subsidiary of Pelindo Terminal Petikemas Sub-Holding, has served the longest ship in the history of cargo handling at Panjang Port. The New Panamax Container Ship owned by MSC shipping company measures 300 meters in length with a maximum capacity of up to 14,500 TEUs. The docking of this ship is a form of support to boost exports and imports, especially for the flagship commodities of Lampung Province, namely coffee and pineapples.
