    JAKARTA – Indonesian marine transport service user board (Depalindo) urges to move the location of the cultivation or relocation of imported containers from the one-line port / container terminal of import-export at Tanjung Priok Port to refer to facility utilization, ie if the yard occupancy ratio (YOR ) in the container terminal has reached 65%.

    Chairman of Depalindo, Toto Dirgantoro said since the Regulation of the Minister of Transportation (Permenhub) No: 25/2017 on the amendment to Regulation of the Minister of Transportation No: 116/2016 concerning the transfer of goods which passes the time limit of stacking or longstay at the main port of Belawan, Tanjung Priok, Tanjung Perak Surabaya, and Makassar Port, the logistics burden borne by the owner of goods actually increases.

    “The reason is in the beleid mentioned imported goods cumulative is limited to a maximum of three days at the port, even those already clearance customs or SPPB as mandated in beleid it must come out of line one. In our opinion, this does not solve the problem of dwelling time, it has the potential to increase logistics costs, so Depalindo asked Permenhub 25/2017 revoked or at least revised for the transfer of containers refers to YOR terminals 65%, “he told Bisnis.com, Tuesday (7/11/2017 ).

    Toto said that the Government through the Ministry of Transportation has issued several regulations regulating the limitation of imported containers to be stacked in the portfolio piling field (line one). “However Depalindo actually questioned whether the presence of beleid has met the target in reducing dwelling time and lower logistics costs,” he said.

    Depalindo considers the arrangement of imported containers that may only accumulate for three days and then be moved out of the container terminal to be improperly precisely because the containers that have been moved out are not monitored by the dwelling time process.

    “Whereas the dwelling time should be calculated until the container is received by the goods owner and not only counted when the imported container is in the container terminal as it happens today,” he said.

    As known, he added, the occurrence of high dwelling time due to several things, among others, include the process of pre-custom clearance, custom clearance and post-clearance as defined by the Customs and Excise. Whereas from the Ministry of Transportation, the application of location move out of the stacking field does not seem right where the dwelling time monitor becomes disguised by the transfer of containers.

    Toto revealed that the condition of some terminal operators in Tanjung Priok port is still low utilization so that the proper pattern of import cargo relocation activities is to return with the pattern of container shipping after YOR reaches 65% so that logistic costs can be reduced.

    In the Port of Tanjung Priok, there are currently five management facilities of import export terminal namely; Jakarta International Container Terminal (JICT), Koja Container Terminal, Mustika Alam Lestari Terminal (MAL), New Priok Container Terminal-One (NPCT-1) and Terminal 3 of Priok Port.

    The relocation activities of imported cargoes through the Permenhub 25/2017 at Tanjung Priok Port ie to imported containers that have not bagged SPPB or known as overbrengen which is still under Customs and Excise supervision at the local port to the temporary hoarding (TPS). While the relocation activities of imported goods that have SPPB that pass the time limit of stacking or longstay in accordance with the beleid it, until now has not run.

    “The normal container shifting pattern as it stands in other countries is to refer to the capacity of the container field from the container terminal by adopting a 65% YOR pattern of relocation,” Toto said. (k1).
