    Chairman of Indonesia Maritime, Logistic and Transportation Watch (IMLOW), Roelly Panggabean also lamented the uncertainty of the smooth service in the port that adversely affect the service user causing the emergence of additional costs that had never been calculated in the logistics business count.

    Container terminal managers should be able to provide guarantee and commitment to all service activities in the terminal,” he said today, Tuesday (9/1/2017).

    According to him, still the existence of service user complaints that occurred in NPCT-1 and JICT currently indicate the commitment of terminal management in prioritizing the interests of service users is still low.

    Earlier this week, port service users represented by the Indonesian Joint Importers of Alliance Indonesia (GINSI) and Jakarta Logistics and Forwarders Association (ALFI) protested and complained about the physical inspection service of imported or behandle containers at New Priok Container Terminal One (NPCT -1) because of the damage of loading and unloading equipment of reach stacker type in the terminal.

    Slowening of container receiving and delivery services also occurred at the Jakarta International Container Terminal (JICT) due to the switching of the loading and unloading equipment operators in the terminal since January 1, 2018.

    In addition to causing, the duration of withdrawal of containers out of harbor conditions also resulted in at least 13 ships forced to delay its service.
