TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The president director of state-owned port operator PT Pelabuhan Indonesia (Pelindo) President Director Arif Suhartono said the company sought to slash dwelling time at the country’s ports.

“So Pelindo will help cut the port stay and cargo stay time,” Arif said in an interview at Tempo office on Thursday, November 25, 2021. He said this step was required to cut unnecessary costs.  

Arif explained the port business was a scheduled business, yet there were still processes on the field that should have been completed one day but in fact they took three days.

Thus, he called for more standardized processing that in the end would optimize networking as everything was carried out according to plans.

“Everything will go smoothly if based on planning. Arrivals and departures. This is what we have been working on,” he said.

He took for example that such an improvement had been executed at the Ambon Port, where processing was cut to one hour from the previous three.

“What we are battling collectively are the costs incurred due to inefficiency. A ship that only needs one day but takes three days. The costs are automatically higher,” he said.

The Pelindo president director also pushed for increased traffic at ports and more accuracy between data on the system and on the field as presently there are varied systems employed.
