INDUSTRY.co.id - Surabaya- PT Pelindo III plans to relocate to PT Dok dan Perkapalan Surabaya (DPS) currently in the working area of the Tanjung Perak Port, the purpose of which is to develop the port.
Pelindo III Managing Director Doso Agung in Surabaya, Friday (05/10/2018) claimed to have signed a memorandum of understanding between Pelindo III and DPS, and agreed on several important points related to the planned development of Tanjung Perak Port, one of which is DPS land use.
"Pelindo III refers to the Tanjung Perak Port Master Plan (RIP) determined by the Ministry of Transportation where there is no ship docking (maintenance) location within the Tanjung Perak Port work area," he said.
The development of Tanjung Perak Port also refers to the increasing flow of goods so that land is needed to expand the port operational work area.
"Currently Tanjung Perak Port is a gateway for the distribution of goods in eastern Indonesia. And the land use currently used by DPS can increase the capacity of Tanjung Perak Port, so that service is expected to be better and the flow of goods distribution becomes smoother," he said.
Pelindo III Corporate Secretary Faruq Hidayat told the media crew that the agreement between Pelindo III and DPS was the first step for the two companies to support each other's business development.
Furthermore, Pelindo III and DPS will sit together in a team to formulate concrete steps as a follow up to the agreement signed by both parties.
Faruq said that the use of DPS land as an area for the development of Tanjung Perak Port was one of Pelindo III's ways of maximizing company assets.
In addition, relocation is expected to be able to support the improvement of the economy of an area which will later become a new DPS work location.
"After this we will work in a team to make good studies on the selection of new DPS locations to other aspects of business," he said.
