Following the spin off of business in July 1, 2018,  in which the handling of container at Tanjung Priok was handed over to its sister company PT IPC TPK,  PT Pelabuhan Tanjung Priok will take focus on its core business and operational coverage area.

By taking focus, this IPC subsidiary can concentrate to realize its corporate target, its parent company target, as well as the government mission, said PTP President Director Imanuddin.

"After spin off on July 1, we totally focus on non-containerized cargo including break bulk, bag cargo, and general cargo," Immanuddin said on the Coffee Morning with stakeholders, partners, and customers, in Holiday Inn Kemayoran on September 20.

PTP again held coffee morning with port stakeholders including 6 government institutions, 33 stevedoring companies, 10 shipping lines, one cargo owner, four associations, and some customers.

Imanuddin underlined that by taking focus, PTP is encouraged to realize the vision and mission as well as target of the corporate (PTP), parent company (IPC), and the government.

"In view of internal, we are encouraged to take focus on non-containerized handling as well as expand business coverage to other ports. In addition, we also can take focus to create zero accident and zero congestion in line with our group (IPC) vision. And, of course, we will support the government vision to create lower logistic cost and cut dwelling time," he said.

Head of Tanjung Priok Port Authority (OP) Capt Hermanta appreciates PTP target, especially in creating zero accident and zero congestion.

He expects PTP to do improvement in supporting the target of Tanjung Priok toward a world class port. "Do improvement in operational performance, effectiveness, and efficiency," he said in his remark speech.

Optimize Berth

Chairman of Stevedoring Companies Association Chapter Jakarta (APBMI Jakarta) Juswandi Kristanto appreciates PTP on its target to create zero congestion. He expects this target will encourage to create zero waiting time.

"We appreciate this target and we expect PTP to do internal coordination with its sister company IPC TPK to optimize the function of all berth in the port, so any berths can function optimally," Juswandi said.

He explained that there had been sometimes some berths are idle, while others were full. He took an example of berth 300 that frequently idle. He expects this for a more flexible operational of those terminals. "Let us say berth 300. Yes, it is dedicated for container. But, since it was frequently idle, I think PTP can coordinate it for bulk loading unloading, especially for unloading of import rice," he said.

Imanuddin promised to do coordination with IPC TPK to respond it, but he wondered with the problems of readiness of warehouses outside the port the might be influence the process of loading unloading.
