    Data from the Indonesian Logistics and Forwarders Association (ALFI) quoted by Bisnis on Wednesday (9/8/2017) showed that the transportation sector consumes 20% of total national final energy consumption.

    While 97% of the total consumption is using fuel oil (BBM). Other costs include driver’s salary (37%), 98% maintenance) and tire (2%).

    The oil fuel (BBM) component covers 29% -32% of the total truck operational cost. Any fuel price increase of Rp1000 will increase operational costs by 4%.
