Bisnis.com, JAKARTA – The Indonesian National Air Carriers Association (INACA) claimed to open a discussion room with the Association of Indonesian Express, Post and Logistics Shipping Services Companies (Asperindo) about the demand for air cargo tariff adjustments.
INACA Chairman IGN Askhara Danadiputra said that the logistical integration system was needed to support the national economy. Of course, talks from all relevant stakeholders are needed to create an efficient condition.
“Including the issue of air cargo rates, we are open to discuss with them. Especially, with Pak Feriadi [Chair of Asperindo] we have agreed to always communicate,” said the man who is familiarly called Ari Askhara to Business on Thursday (2/21/2019).
Previously, Chairman of the Asperindo Transportation and Infrastructure Division, Hari Sugiandi, said that the airline should also reduce the price of its air cargo rates because Pertamina had reduced its avtur prices.
“Avtur should go down, the tariff will also go down, but it has gone up now. When this [airline] loses, the cargo begins to empty, because our products are not possible to send via flights,” he explained.
He said that so far the courier service helped MSMEs by giving credit when the businessmen made high-priced deliveries express shipping services became unable to do so.
