Jakarta, May 19, 2023 – IPC Terminal Petikemas/IPC TPK has received visits from the Kenyan delegation, the Ambassador of Peru to Indonesia, the European Parliament, and the Ministry of Trade of the Republic of Indonesia over the past two weeks. The delegations were received by the Board of Directors of Pelindo and had the opportunity to witness the planning and control process of container loading and unloading at the Integrated Planning & Control Room of Tanjung Priok Port. The purpose of these visits was to observe the port infrastructure firsthand, the terminal operating systems that handle exports and imports, and to discuss the management of environmentally friendly national assets (ports).
“We fully support Pelindo’s efforts in providing an overview of port operation management. Indonesia, being an archipelagic country, relies heavily on ports for the movement of domestic and international goods,” said Guna Mulyana, President Director of IPC TPK.
These visits reflect the potential for port infrastructure development, opportunities for cooperation through increased export and import volumes between Indonesia and various countries, as well as port management that supports decarbonization initiatives in the maritime sector in the future.
According to the Central Statistics Agency, in the first quarter of 2023, Indonesia’s exports reached USD 67.20 billion, an increase of 1.60% compared to the same period in 2022. Meanwhile, the value of Indonesia’s imports decreased by 6.26% in March 2023, reaching USD 20.59 billion compared to March 2022, or an increase of 29.33% compared to February 2023.
Guna Mulyana added, “We hope to contribute to the enhancement of strategic project cooperation, the creation of new markets that will lead to increased cargo volumes, both bulk and containerized, and the strengthening of bilateral relationships with various countries.”
Yanuar Evyanto, Director of Finance & HR at IPC TPK, welcomed the visiting delegations and presented the company’s profile and the process flow of container loading and unloading. On this occasion, the transformation of operational patterns and services, which is currently the main focus of IPC TPK in providing convenience to service users, was also discussed.
