The Jakarta International Container Terminal unveiled on May 21 the JICT auto gate system (JAGS) that is expected to facilitate delivery and pickup of containers at the biggest container terminal in the Tanjung Priok seaport, Indonesia.

“JAGS will streamline the handling of containers moving in and out of the terminal. This is part of an overall effort to increase terminal capacity and continually improve our service levels,” said Albert Pang, president director of JICT.

Under the new system, the check booths at the entry and exit gate will be replaced with an automatic checkpoint machine that uses radio-frequency identification cards and tickets to replace the previous delivery and loading cards.

“The system will significantly reduce transaction time at the gate and waiting time in the parking area,” a company statement said.

JICT will work closely with the Organization of Land Transportation, a trucking association in Jakarta, to ensure a smooth roll out of JAGS to terminal users.

JICT has so far registered 12,000 trucks and issued truck identification cards to trucking companies for access to the terminal.

The operator of the largest container terminal in Indonesia also took delivery of 20 new fuel-efficient container tractors with Euro 3 eco-friendly technology, the standard in European Union countries for hydrocarbon and carbon monoxide emissions.

The implementation of JAGS and the arrival of new equipment are part of an expansion plan to boost the terminal’s annual handling capacity to 2.8 million standard containers, the company said.
