JAKARTA – The Indonesian Stevedoring Company Association (APBMI) recommends to the government, in this case the Ministry of Transportation to strengthen the synergy between the Port Business Entity (BUP) or PT Pelindo I, II, III and IV with private loading and unloading companies (PBM) Indonesia.
The recommendation is one of the points of the national working meeting (rakernas) APBMI held in Semarang Central Java on 27-28 October 2017.
Rakernas APBMI 2017 entitled ‘National Consolidation In The Framework of Implementation Cooperation BUP and PBM in Each Port’, followed by all the Board of Regional Leaders Board (DPW) and the Association Chairman of the Association (DPC).
“Quite a lot of results achieved in the rakernas, and one that sticks to strengthen the cooperation and synergy between PBM and PT.Pelindo,” he told Business, on Friday (3/11/2017).
In the next week DPP APBMI will also formulate concrete steps of the organization to follow up the results of the Rakernas.
“There needs to be a better synergy between PBM and PT Pelindo, as for the formulation of cooperation we will still wait for the revision of KM 35 of 2007 on Guidelines for Calculation of Service Rate of Loading and Unloading from and to the Ship at the Port,” he explained.
According to the result of the Working Meeting, another thing that APBMI will strive for is to ask the government to abolish the burden of non-tax revenues (PNBP) on the supervision of loading and unloading activities by 1% at the port, because the tax burden becomes double since the loading and unloading control activities already done by PBM, Shipping Line and Power Loading and Unloading.
