The Ministry of Transportation is still coordinating with stakeholders. His current condition is purely a business to business (BTOB) affair. Meanwhile, the scarcity in Indonesia is an export container measuring 40 feet.
“This happened because there was a pandemic and the export and import had not been balanced so that there were not enough incoming containers. The businessman’s proposal was to repo empty containers to Indonesia at the expense of the entrepreneurs,” he said.
Antoni explained, the most possible repositioning of containers from abroad at this time by moving empty containers in Malaysia and Singapore.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Transportation‘s proposal is for entrepreneurs to maximize 20-foot containers for export and it is time for Indonesian shipping companies to enter international support for exports using domestic containers.
“Entrepreneurs must divert their exports by using general cargo ships or breakbulk vessels using international flags,” he said.
