State-owned port operator Indonesia Port Corporation (IPC) II chose SOGET and Microsoft to implement what it said will be the world’s largest electronically connected port community system. The project will be initiated in Jakarta then expanded to other Indonesian ports.

Bambang Susantono, Vice Minister of Transportation, said the installation of the system will strengthen and accelerate the implementation of the Inaportnet (Indonesia Port Net System) and enhance the country’s logistic performance and economic competitiveness.

Indonesia is the largest archipelago in the world, with 17,508 islands and 111 commercial and 614 non-commercial ports operating within the area. Improving its national supply chain in mandated in the government’s Port Reform of 2008, which aims to integrate Indonesian trade with a multimodal transportation system.

“The implementation in Indonesia of the largest port community system in the world will allow our ports to increase dramatically their level of activity while complying with international trade facilitation and security standards,” said RJ Lino, CEO of IPC.

SOGET, based in France, and Microsoft have worked together since 2010 to develop the next generation of port community systems. Acting as a port single window, the solution promotes efficient port operations with benefits such as improved transparency of information, enhanced communications, shortened port transit time for cargoes, easier transactions, simplified control processes, and decreased costs.

“Based on the most advanced Microsoft technology,  SOGET’s Port Single Window makes multimodal transport greener, cheaper, more competitive and transparent by standardizing core functional processes, facilitating business networking, improving knowledge, and dealing with all stakeholders,” said Frank McCosker, managing director of Microsoft Global Strategic Accounts.
