Koja Container Terminal targets to handle only 800,000 TEUs in 2020, lower than the realization of last year. In 2019, this joint operation (KSO) terminal between PT Pelabuhan Indonesia II/IPC and Hutchison Port Indonesia (HPI), handled 914,000 TEUs, a 10% over target (RKAP) of 824,000 TEUs.
The civil works for berth reconstruction and rail installation prepared for new quay container crane (QCC) has forced this terminal to set lower target in throughput.
General Manager TPK Koja, Hudadi Soerja Djanegara, said as beritakapal reported that this was a realistic target since some of the calls would be relocated to Jakarta International Container Terminal (JICT) during the berth construction.
He said TPK Koja would reconstruct the 600 meter-length berth and re-install rail for quay crane.
This work will force some ship calls move to JICT berth, causing more than 100,000 TEUs would be loaded/unloaded from TPK Koja to JICT Terminal.
Vice President Director of JICT Riza Erivan affirmed this, saying that since JICT would be ready to handle ship calls and container removal from TPK Koja.
“To support the fluent handling for ship calls and container loading unloading, JICT is ready to handle any container and ship calls removal from TPK Koja,” he said.
