    Armada transportationsCost-Effective

    Most of the companies opt for air freight services only when they are transporting perishable goods freight that is time sensitive. If the delivery time isn't a cause of concern for the client, then he or she must opt for ocean freight as it is much more economical than air freight. As the ocean freight rates are much lesser as compared to air, businesses can easily send more quantities in the same amount. Also, ocean freight can easily accommodate goods of different sizes as well as shapes, which includes vehicle, heavy machinery and tools etc. that cannot be transported through air.


    Ocean freight services are combined with the truck deliveries to transport the good to their ultimate location. Majority of the international shipping services provide inter-modal containers so as to ensure that the shipment is not tampered with during the transportation.

    Environment Friendly

    Apart from being highly practical and economical way of transporting goods, ocean freight is also an environmentally friendly option. It leaves much smaller carbon footprint on environment as the modern cargo ship engines leaves lesser emissions.

    Even though ocean freight has got a few limitations as far as transport of freight is concerned, it is still the most popular choice. You must devote some time and effort to find the best shipping service in order to save money. Apart from the cost you should also pay attention to the reputation, customer support and experience of the company that you are opting for.

    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. --------- Sources: http://industri.kontan.co.id/news/alfi-masih-bingung-soal-kenaikan-tarif-pengiriman Translated by Aryaputra Pande- BIC

According to the Chairman of the Bali Logistics and Forwarders Association (ALFI) Bali John Bagus Sujayana, directly to the destination port without transit, it could cut logistics costs for exports. "We expect Tanjung Priok to be a hub, from there to Europe not to Singapore or Malaysia first," he explained, Monday (30/1/2017). With the system he confirmed by him the logistics of shipping cargo from Bali will go down and impact on the cost of goods production. He asserted that Bali's export chain of export products is very long. From Benoa, cargo is shipped to Tanjung Priok or Tanjung Perak, Surabaya and then to Singapore first before being shipped to the destination port.

    Ministry of Trade Simplifies Regulation to Increase Export of Goods

    Surabaya - (suaracargo.com) The Ministry of Trade (Kemendag) continues to review a number of regulations related to the smooth flow of goods at the port. Especially the flow of export goods, so that the business world more excited. "Do not let the process of 'flow of document' or 'flow of goods' actually burden the business," said Director General of Foreign Trade Ministry of Trade Oke Nurwan as quoted from Antara in Surabaya on Thursday (7/9). According to him, the Ministry of Trade is currently reviewing 35 import-related regulations and 18 export-related regulations to support the smooth flow of goods. Thus, there will be deregulation so that the flow of goods will be more smoothly, the time for goods to settle in the port or dwelling time can be suppressed, and the competitiveness of Indonesian products will increase. According to Oke, there are currently about 11,000 classified trading products or Harmonized System (HS). Of that total, 5,280 HS is included in commodities subject to "lartas", ie goods that are prohibited and / or restricted to imports or exports. Of the 5,280 HSs, 3,466 HS are related to the Ministry of Trade. "We are reviewing. We expect to live about 1,000 HS, while the rest is done by the mechanism of supervision in the 'post border', "he said, as reported by merdeka.com. Although the Ministry of Trade continues to strive for logistics costs to be suppressed, Oke also asks businesses to utilize the trading schemes that have been built to support the reduction of logistics costs. For example, there are still less than 40 percent of business actors utilizing cooperation with a number of countries through the use of certificates of origin (SKA) in order not to incur export costs. "The ministry will facilitate the cutting of bureaucratic and licensing chains so that logistics costs can be reduced and competitiveness can be improved," he said. Indonesia's global competitiveness index has now dropped to 41 from 37 earlier under Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. --------- Sources: http://suaracargo.com/kemendag-sederhanakan-peraturan-untuk-tingkatkan-ekspor-barang/ Translated by Aryputra Pande
