PT Pelabuhan Tanjung Priok (PTP), a subsidiary of PT Pelabuhan Indonesia II, that operates three terminals at Tanjung Priok Port (Terminal 1, 2, and 3), will give a tariff discount for storage during Idul Adha Holidays. PTP will give discount with a formula of ‘one day charge for 4 days storage’ during the holidays.

The circular letter No: HM.608/28/8/I/PTP-17 signed up by PTP Commercial Director Ari Henryanto said that the discount will be given to both containerized and non- containerized cargoes stored at the three terminals of PTP. The discount will be on stage from August 31 at 12.00am until September 3 at 23.59pm.

The discount is given to support the government policy that will ban some trucks operation during the holidays.

Earlier, on August 24, the Ministry of Transportation issued a circular letter No:SE.16/AJ.201/DRJD/2017 on traffic management and prohibition of certain trucks operation at some toll roads, including the toll roads of Jakarta-Cikampek-Palimanan-Brebes and Jakarta-Cikampek-Padalarang-Cileunyi as well as some artery roads to tourism destinations around Jakarta.

Such truck ban is meant to avoid gridlock affecting homeward-bound traffic on Idul Adha (Sacrifice Day), according to the letter.

The letter said the ban would run not only from Thursday midnight to Friday at 12 p.m. but also on Sunday from 6 a.m. to 11:59 p.m.

But, acting land transportation director general Hindro Surahmat said trucks carrying daily needs and fuel would be exempt from the ban.
