In order to reduce the waiting time of the vessel leaning in the port, PT Terminal Petikemas Surabaya (TPS) alerted the service of the ship assistant for 24 hours. Starting from February 1, 2018.
President Director of PT TPS, Joko Noerhudha said, so far his side can not do much. Especially on the matter of waiting time at the dock of a subsidiary of PT Pelabuhan Indonesia III. Where is located at the Port of Tanjung Perak Surabaya.
He explained that the Tanjung Perak Surabaya area is mandatory waters. This means that every ship that will enter or leave the Port of Tanjung Perak Surabaya must get guidance service.
“Because the one who prepared the pandu service during this time is not from our own party, but from PT Pelindo III. So we can not control the readiness of pilot service on every arrival or departure schedule of the ship from PT TPS dock, “he explained.
Former General Manager of Tanjung Perak Surabaya Branch did not dismiss, the delay of guards service from third party provided by PT Pelindo III for the arrival and departure schedule of ships in PT TPS so far. Often leads to waiting time issues.
Along with the implementation of terminal clustering in the Port of Tanjung Perak by PT Pelindo III, Joko proposed to be able to manage the guiding officers themselves. Especially for ships that will perform loading and unloading at PT TPS. The proposal was finally approved.
“Now there are at least 16 guards who are on standby for 24 hours with a ‘shift’ system. To serve the departure and arrival of the vessel at TPS, which we have done as of February 1, “he said, as quoted by Antara on Thursday (1/2/2018).
With 16 guard officers on standby serving for 24 hours, he concluded, can suppress the length of waiting time in the polling station.
