Tanjung Priok starts car transhipment

Tanjung Priok starts car transhipment

Jakarta: The Tanjung Priok port car terminal in Indonesia last Thursday began offering new transshipment services in a bid to challenge rival regional ports. ??
Richard Lino, president director of state-owned port operator PT Pelindo II, said the new service and the port's strategic location would help it compete against ports in Singapore and Malaysia.
??"In the past, car exporters in countries like India and Thailand have used the transshipment service in those two countries [Singapore and Malaysia], but Indonesia now has a similar service," he told the Jakarta Post. ??
Deputy Transportation Minister Bambang Susantono said he believed the transshipment service for cars would make the Tanjung Priok port more attractive than its rivals.
??"The Tanjung Priok port has always been an attractive port for shipping vehicles to and from Southeast Asia and Australia, as it is more strategic in terms of location compared to its rivals," he said.
??"The tariff for unloading, then loading the car again is Rp 600,000 [$64] per car," said Gunta Prabawa, chief of the port's car terminal. ??
The port can unload 130 cars per hour and load 90 per hour. The terminal has a parking capacity of 6,000 cars. [15/02/10]?
