• Logistics Costs Can Decrease, Provided …

    JAKARTA – The development of transportation infrastructure is expected to have a positive impact on the reduction of logistics costs of the country.

    Chairman of the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin) Rosan P. Roeslani said the new logistics costs could be more efficient if transportation and logistics are integrated.

    “Transportation and logistics infrastructure must be integrated in order to reduce the cost of logistics,” he said at a press conference of Indonesia Transport, Logistics & Maritime Week 2017 in Jakarta on Thursday (5/10/2017).

    The integration is very necessary considering the geographical conditions of Indonesia in the form of islands. So that the delivery of goods from the side of land, sea and air must be connected.

    Indonesia is listed as one of the countries with the highest logistics costs. Indonesia’s logistics cost comparison to gross domestic product (GDP) is about 26%.

    On that basis Kadin holds exhibitions and conferences of transportation, logistics and maritime industry entitled Indonesia Transport, Logistics & Maritime Week (ITLMW) 2017.

    The event is held from 10 October to 12 October 2017 at the Jakarta International Expo, Kemayoran.

    Rosan said the event will be where industry players gather to discuss issues, networks and strategies and create new business opportunities.

    “The main objective of KADIN is to organize this exhibition to provide a platform for business opportunities in the transportation, logistics and maritime sectors,” he said.
