Bandar Lampung, March 31, 2022 – The President Commissioner of IPC Terminal Petikemas Muarip appreciates the management for driving the growth of loading and unloading performance throughout the working areas in 2021. Muarip emphasized that after the merger with Pelindo, IPC Terminal Petikemas contributed almost 30% of the throughput sub-holding of Pelindo Terminal Petikemas. In 2022, IPC TPK must encourage the growth of connectivity in Indonesia. This was conveyed at the IPC Terminal Petikemas National Work Meeting for 2022 held in Bandar Lampung.
“In the future, we will compete with ports outside. This year, we must prepare for that competition. IPC Terminal Petikemas is one of the benchmarks for container terminal operators in Indonesia. The challenge for all of us is to continue improving both in terms of service and competence of human resources. Improvements in service include optimizing vessel loading, accelerating the loading and unloading of containers, and delivering more accurate data. The ultimate goal is to reduce national logistics costs,” said Muarip.
Entering the year of Synergy & Growth, IPC TPK is currently preparing the National Integrated Container Terminal Network, which aims to develop and explore Indonesia’s maritime potential, which is believed to be able to reduce national logistics costs. In addition, IPC TPK is moving towards Integrated Key Account Management. Various transformations have been carried out so far, including service digitalization, culture improvement and human resources development, as well as container loading and unloading equipment optimization.
This year, IPC TPK targets 2.8 million TEUs of container throughput, with container profit and EBITDA of 2.8 million TEUs, revenue of 2.6 trillion, and EBITDA of 236.7 billion. As a form of IPC TPK’s commitment to implementing the principles of Social and Environmental Responsibility Governance (TJSL/Corporate Social Responsibility – CSR) that are in line with the targets in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), appreciation was also given to terminals for their performance in several categories, including Fuel Efficiency (SDGs No. 7) and Zero Accidents (SDGs No. 3).
IPC TPK’s President Director, Wahyu Hardiyanto, also stated that everything we face ahead, we must be confident that we can achieve and succeed in IPC TPK’s assigned targets. Area Managers have a crucial role as the front guard in achieving IPC TPK’s targets. With optimism, we continue to synergize with the head office, service users, customers, and continue to do our best to achieve IPC TPK’s targets this year, he said in his speech.
The IPC TPK National Work Meeting was attended by the Board of Commissioners of IPC TPK, the Board of Directors of IPC TPK, the Director of Strategy and Commercial of the Pelindo Terminal Petikemas Subholding Rima Novianti along with the management of IPC TPK. With the theme “Establish Container Terminal Operator Through Synergy & Growth”, this year’s main focus of the National Work Meeting is on the synergy between business entities and the growth of container terminal service productivity.
