PT Indonesia Port II, or IPC, continues to improve on the concept of the national pendulum system in Indonesia as it prepares for a trial run to test how well the plan enhances shipping efficiency and lowers logistics costs.

The concept designates six big ports scattered throughout Indonesia as comprising the main hub through which large ships may pass to move domestic goods. These are the ports in Belawan, Batam, Tanjung Priok, Tanjung Perak, Makassar, and Papua.

At present large container ships make calls largely in the western part of Indonesia, extending to the central part but hardly reaching the eastern part, where smaller ships are mainly used. This situation jacks up the prices of goods in the eastern region, IPC said in a statement.

The national pendulum system is expected to integrate the country’s distribution chain by creating a corridor that will accommodate ships with a minimum capacity of 3,000 TEUs across Indonesia, improving cargo flow, cutting travel time, and lowering logistics costs.

Through integrated management, these ships will follow a daily schedule through the six major ports across the country.

“The IPC as the main driving force of the national pendulum motor ensures all parties will benefit from the application of this system, including the related associations,” said RJ Lino, president director of IPC.

IPC did not indicate a specific time for the application of the pendulum system. It said it would conduct a trial run before it operates the national pendulum “to its full potential in the near future.”
