Indonesian Trucking Business Association (Aptrindo) salutes genially the plan of Tanjung Priok Port to apply non-cash port pass service through the implementation of Auto Gate System.


Chief of Aptrindo of Jakarta Office, Mustajab Susilo Basuki told Indonesia Shipping Gazette about his appreciation over the plan after joining the socialization of this Auto Gate System in Tanjung Priok Port last Wednesday (5/3/2018).






Mustajab explained that Aptrindo gave full supports to the Auto Gate System plan in Gate 1, 8 and 9 with a hope that it might be able to reduce traffic congestion inside the port. With this system, he added, the truck that came earlier into the port would be able to park at a 2-hectare buffer area in the ex-Pacific Paint site. The tryout of this Auto Gate System would be scheduled in mid of May, Mustajab said.


The capability of setting the order of trucking traffic inside the port would also mean guarantee that Tanjung Priok Port has complied to the ISPS Code (International Ship and Port Facility Security) Code, Mustajab added.


“The more important thing,” he said, “The Cargo Information System (SIAB) that has been set by Aptrindo later on will run optimally.”


Aptrindo so far has invested to install Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Reader that would allow it to manage and control the incoming and outgoing of trucks in Gate 1, 8 and 9 (3 at the Gate-In and 2 at the Gate-Out) but it was not absorbed maximally.


“We also have made Driver Identification Data (DID) to the drivers so that at a time they drive the trucks, we can oversee the vehicle number, the name of driver as well as the name of the company.”


With the Auto Gate System in Gate 1, 8 and 9, our well-built SIAB would be possibly used optimally. “We just need to add a system that will make the portal to get in and out of truck in those gates to be connected with SIAB.”


According to Mustajab, total registered trucks at Tanjung Priok Port are approximately 30,000 units, which mean about 6,000 trucks per day to go in and out of Tanjung Priok Port.


Meanwhile, total trucks owned by Aptrindo Jakarta Office that have registered into SIAB are around 8,000 of total 17,000 vehicles.


The Chief of Tanjung Priok Port Branch Office, Mulyadi Iskandar refused to give confirmation about it. “Later, we will specifically hold press conference to explain it,” he said.
