    Ketua Umum ALFI Yukki Nugrahawan Hanafi

    JAKARTA – ALFI Chairman Yukki Nugrahawan Hanafi said there are five selected cities as the object of study are Medan, Jakarta, Yogyakarta, Denpasar, and Makassar. The location is chosen on the basis of logistical and geographical complexity.

    “Through this partnership, we hope to synergize the role of industry, universities and government in building a logistics urban that is not only effective and efficient, but also environmentally friendly and sustainable. While we focus on five cities. The reason is because these cities are of high complexity and represent Sumatra, Java, Bali and East Indonesia, “Yukki said in Jakarta, Monday (13/11).

    Yukki said that the current domestic logistics industry is facing various urgent problems to be solved. Such as, limited urban area as activity area, congestion, competition of space between passenger and goods transportation, and limited facility for consolidation and deconsolidation of goods.

    “The future challenge in urban logistics is how government, academia and industry cooperation work together in designing and managing the delivery and receiving of goods from cities that are capable of adaptation of consumer demand,” added Yukki who is now also Chair of the ASEAN Federation of Forwarders Associations (AFFA).

    Encountered on the same occasion, ALFI Institute Director Iman Gandi explained several challenges faced by the logistics industry today such as congestion problem where logistic transport trucks accounted for 25-30% congestion. In addition, parking zones and loading and unloading will cut the road body so that it can contribute to excessive congestion.

    The next challenge, continued Faith, there is an increase in the middle to lower class to upper middle by almost 60%.

    “With the increasing middle class in Indonesia and the increasing popularity of mobile devices, making Indonesia the fastest and largest market in ASEAN. EC Market Size Indonesia’s ranking reached 1,682 USD with CAGR rating reaching 44.4% that number increased to 37.0% in 2016, “he added. (gor)
