Pelindo I builds cargo terminal ports to support industry

Jakarta, June 10 (ANTARA News) – State-owned port operator Pelindo I is building cargo terminal ports in a number of regions as a strategy to support local industrial development.

“We are developing cargo terminal ports to support local industry such as what we are developing in Bintang to support investors in the Lobam Industrial Zone,” Pelindo I President Director Bambang Eka Cahyana said when contacted by Antara on Sunday.

He said other cargo terminal ports being built included in Kijang to support bauxite mining and in Sibolga to support the Martabe gold mining activities.

In Bintan, Pelindo I has to use a special crane from Germany to support the smoothness of stevedoring activities, he said.

“Cargo terminal ports we are developing include those in Kijang, Tanjung Pinang, Sibolga, Malahayati and Perawang,” the Pelindo I president director said.

He said these areas will later be connected to the Trans Sumatra Toll Road thereby palm oil industries will need a special bulk port.

The development of the bulk port will be built in cooperation with an industrial zone under the management of Wilmar Group. It is expected that the development of the bulk port will commence in the second semester of 2018.

Cahyana said that besides developing ports of its own initiative, Pelindo I is also developing the same port under the designation of the government.

These included government designation of the Batu Ampar container terminal port of Batam, he said.
