    Is it Better to Use Freight Forwarding Or to Do the Logistics Yourself?

    Armada transportationsBy definition a freight forwarding supplier is a third party provider who takes care of all of the logistics involved in the shipment of goods from one place to the other. Your freight services provider will take charge of arranging for all of the carriers and transportation needed to get your goods to their ultimate destination. Typically, you would not use freight forwarding for a local or domestic removal as the logistics involved with such shipments are not as complicated as those involved with international freight – the same cannot be said for sending cargo overseas. When it comes to sending cargo overseas, it is best to rely on the expertise of a professional freight forwarder.

    In a Dash to Do Away with Trash


    Metrobali.com reports that Bali’s Deputy Governor Ketut Sudikerta, accompanied by the Coordinating Minister of Maritime Affairs Luhut Binsar Panjaitan and Finance Minister Sri Mulyani, presided at the groundbreaking for a new project to “revitalize” the massive garbage dump of TPA Suwung on Friday, December 22, 2017. 

    Speaking at the ceremony, Sudikerta said the concept of managing the Island largest trash tip first began in 1984, changing in 2005 to a new concept of converting trash into electrical energy that was planned to produce 0.9 megawatts of electricity. 

    The TPA Suwung covers a total area of 32.4 hectares and has grown to a height of nearly 20-meters – the sight and smell of which are painfully evident from the Benoa entrance and exit from the Island’s iconic toll road.

    Serving four regencies and one municipality (i.e., Denpasar, Badung, Gianyar, and Tabanan) the TPA Suwung processes an estimated 1,000 tons of trash each day. 

    Minimizing the eyesore of TPA Suwung and he completion of a new underpass at the entrance to Bali’s airport are two major infrastructure projects slated for completion before the prestigious International Monetary Fund-World Bank Summit takes place in Bali in October 2018.

    Commenting on the TPA Suwung project, Coordinating Minister of Maritime Affairs, Luhut Binsar Panjaitan, pointed out that the revitalization of the rubbish tip has been too long delayed, but must now be undertaken not only to be ready for the IMF-World Bank Conference, but, more basically, to improve the general welfare and quality of life of the Balinese people.

    Among the goals of the revitalization of TPA Suwung are plans to restore 22.4 hectares to a protected mangrove forest reserve.

    Pair of Australian tourists climbed Mount Agung, claiming they weren’t aware of exclusion zone

    A pair of Australian tourists were pulled in for questioning after they thought it would be a good idea to hike up Bali’s rumbling and smoking volcano, Mount Agung, which happens to on the highest alert level for an eruption.

    The Australians, identified in a report by ABC’s Adam Harvey, were named as Ricky Tonacia, 34, and Jack Dennard, 26.

    The pair hiked up at 2am on Thursday—apparently so they could make in time for sunrise—and was stopped eight hours later on their way down the mountain for questioning by Indonesian police.

    The police chief from Selat told reporters that he had gotten a report that two foreign tourists were hiking Mount Agung.

    “We went to the gate at border of the no-climbing danger zone, and we met two guides who were waiting for them to come back down from the top,” ABC quoted the police chief as saying.

    “The local military chief and I and some volunteers waited for them to come back and when they came back we secured them afterwards at Selat Police Office, to get their statements.”

    Mount Agung has been in an eruptive phase since November and the volcano’s exclusion zone of eight to 10 kilometers from the crater was very well publicized in Bali and was no secret.

    While the exclusion zone was lessened to a six kilometer radius just on Thursday, hikers and the public in general are not allowed to enter that radius because the threat persists for another eruption. 

    Tonacia and Dennard were eventually allowed to go and sent back to their accommodation in Canggu after the questioning.
