PT Angkasa Pura I’s subsidiary named Angkasa Pura Logistik and PT Angkasa Pura II’s subsidiary Angkasa Pura Kargo will expand business on Bonded Logistics Center (PLB).

Ety Puspitasari, Chairperson of the Indonesian Association of Bonded Logistics Center (PPLBI) said that the two subsidiaries of state-owned enterprises (SOEs) have set the plan for running the PLB business.

“Maybe the plan came from AP Logistik. Its business is already running well,” Ety told on Monday (4/3).

In early March, Satrio Witjaksono, Director of Operations and Business Development of Angkasa Pura Logistik said he wanted to make Indonesia to become a logistics distribution center in Asia.

Providing Bonded Logistics Centers and ease in regulations, according to him was the key for Indonesia to compete with other countries.

AP Logistik is currently exploring business cooperation for transshipment and distribution center operations in two locations, Jakarta and Surabaya. Satrio said the company to cooperate with comes from Australia.

Meanwhile Denny Fikri, President Director of PT Angkasa Pura Kargo, a subsidiary of PT Angkasa Pura II, said his company is also preparing a development plan of a Bonded Logistics Center.

He said the realization of the bonded logistics center can be done through a synergy with other SOEs. He added that he had discussed the possibility to construct warehousing facilities with PT Pos Indonesia (Persero) and PT Garuda Indonesia (Persero) Tbk.
