• ALFI Bali Wants Tanjung Priok to be an Export Line without Transit

    DENPASAR – Indonesian Logistics and Forwarders Association Bali expects Tanjung Priok Port can immediately realize direct export routes to destination countries without transit.

    According to the Chairman of the Bali Logistics and Forwarders Association (ALFI) Bali John Bagus Sujayana, directly to the destination port without transit, it could cut logistics costs for exports.

    “We expect Tanjung Priok to be a hub, from there to Europe not to Singapore or Malaysia first,” he explained, Monday (30/1/2017).

    With the system he confirmed by him the logistics of shipping cargo from Bali will go down and impact on the cost of goods production. He asserted that Bali’s export chain of export products is very long.

    From Benoa, cargo is shipped to Tanjung Priok or Tanjung Perak, Surabaya and then to Singapore first before being shipped to the destination port.

    Good saying that such shipping lines cost logistics more. He believed if direct to the intended port can cut the cost and travel time.

    Believed by Bagus, the direct route will also have a positive impact with the entry of imported goods to the Port of Benoa. Because the cargo ship will carry cargo from the country concerned.

    For Benoa, it can be a solution to the problem of the lack of cargo from Surabaya to Bali but the opposite is full.

    With a direct route opened, cargo loading imported products can be brought to Benoa so there is no imbalance of payload. “Export and import cargo can be much the same,” he explained.
