PT Pelabuhan Indonesia II (Persero)/IPC ensures smooth operation of loading and unloading of export commodities at its ports so that export activities become more efficient and measurable.
"We continue to improve services to facilitate the export of agricultural products and other trade products. The results can be felt, in July, for the first time IPC Branch of Talang Duku Port Jambi facilitated the export of 15 tons of Kerinci Arabica variant coffee to Belgium," Ari Santoso, EVP of the IPC Company Secretariat said, Tuesday (11/8).
Previously, Jambi's superior coffee was exported through ports in other provinces. This breakthrough resulted in logistic cost efficiency, especially savings in terms of distance and travel time before the goods departed from port to destination country.
Ari explained, infrastructure and loading and unloading equipment at Talang Duku Port are ready to ensure the smooth operation of loading and unloading agricultural products. This will provide added value for the export products.
The same thing also happened in the Port of Belinyu Area, Pangkal Balam, Bangka Belitung Islands. Earlier this month, the port facilitated the export of 10,000 tonnes of oil palm shells to Japan, witnessed by Governor of Bangka Belitung Islands Erzaldi Rosman.
"The large potential of export-oriented agricultural products in many regions needs to be accompanied by quality port services. Therefore, IPC guarantees the availability of services 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, to facilitate export and trade in all IPC working areas," Ari insisted. (hlz/hlz)
