Cigading port set to become Indonesia's largest bulk port

Cigading port set to become Indonesia's largest bulk port

Jakarta:  State-owned steel maker PT Krakatau Steel said it will expand its Cigading port to become the country's largest port for bulk cargoes.
Jakarta's Tanjung Priok, the country's largest port, has been plagued by congestion, Krakatau Steel President Faswar Bujang said.
The Cigading port in Cilegon, Banten has served as a special industrial port facilitating mainly import of industrial basic material to and exports of manufactured products from the Krakatau Steel Industrial Estates in that area.
Faswar said in fact loading and unloading of part of bulk cargoes including industrial and food products, previously handled by Tanjung Priok has been taken over by the Cigading port. [01/04/08]
