JAKARTA - PT Pelabuhan Indonesia II (Persero) / Indonesia Port Corporation (IPC) is targeting vessel visits and throughput-both containers and non-containers-to increase in this year along with the global and national economic recovery.
In the IPC's 2021 projection, ship traffic is targeted to reach 183,560 GT or increase 4.3% compared to last year's realization of 175,990 GT.
For containers volume, IPC is targeting to reach 7.20 million TEUs, an increase of 7.2% compared to 6.72 million TEUs in 2020. The volume of non-container goods is projected to grow 5% to 53.48 million tons this year from 50.91 million tons last year.
"Although the port industry is one of the industries that is quite resilient to face the Covid-19 pandemic during 2020, IPC still has to fight hard to seize business opportunities and face uncertainty in undergoing new normal conditions going forward," said Arif Suhartono, President Director of IPC, Monday (22/2/2021).
In 2021, the IPC strategy will focus on Synergy and Performance Improvement through the implementation of corporate strategic programs, namely Cultural Transformation, Digital Transformation, Business Model Innovation, Innovation Management, Subsidiary Restructuring and Port Synergy and Integration.
