• ALFI Still Confused About Rising Shipping Tariffs

    JAKARTA. some time ago the Indonesian National Shipowners Association (INSA) announced a 20 feet freight shipping tariff for the Surabaya-Ambon route. The Indonesian Logistics and Forwarders Association (ALFI) is not yet aware of the clarity regarding this tariff increase information.

    “We who represent the traders do not know the obvious. It may be worth explaining openly so that all parties can see in a transparent, “said Yukki Nugrahawan Hanafi, Chairman of the Indonesian Logistics Forwarders Association. Sunday (8/10).

    Previously Chairman of the Indonesian National Shipowners Association (INSA), Camelita Hartoto announced that INSA decided to raise the 20 feet container shipping rate, unlike the Surabaya-Ambon route. Currently, the price is raised to Rp 7 million to Rp 8 million, before the delivery of 20 feet containers is charged Rp 4.7 million to Rp 5.5 million.

    With this significant tariff increase Yukki said the ALFI is quite surprised by the amount of tariff increase and this becomes the discussion of ALFI members especially those in the East region.

    “The increase is very surprising to us the perpetrators of logistics because there is no socialization and the increase is very high percent,” said Yukki.

    Yukki also said that in fact almost all shipments destined for eastern Indonesia experienced a rise in tariffs with an almost equal percentage increase. Shipping to eastern Indonesia usually contains basic needs and clothing and electrinic and automotive.

    If by reason of the increase of Marine Fuel Oil (MFO) price as said by Carmelita Hartoto, Yukki explained that the increase of fuel oil (BBM) must be calculated first. “The fuel increase should be searched for what percentage is included in the cost structure on the voyage,” Yukki said.

    “We appreciate an increase, but not as much as has been decided. Should PLT Director General of Sea Transportation can evaluate this and we also have to say, “said Yukki.
