Pelindo Multi Terminal Records Strong Performance in 2023

PT Pelindo Multi Terminal (SPMT), a subholding of PT Pelindo (Persero), achieved positive performance throughout 2023. This was thanks to the transformation in all ports starting from the standardization stage, which was followed by systemization and continued with integration.

Pelindo Multi Terminal Operations Director Arif Rusman Yulianto explained that the transformation was carried out in various aspects, ranging from business processes, equipment, human resources, infrastructure, Health, Safety, Security, and Environment (HSSE) to technology.

“Throughout 2023, SPMT has carried out transformation in 24 port branches. Starting from improving planning and control, and improving traffic flow to maximize loading and unloading activities,” Arif explained in Surabaya, East Java, quoted on Wednesday (7/2/2024).

As a result, there have been increased loading and unloading activities at all ports. The number of dry bulk cargo, such as coal, iron ore, sugar, soybeans, and others, increased by 5.9 percent on an annual basis or year-on-year (yoy) of 55.1 million tons in 2023.

Meanwhile, liquid bulk cargo flow services rose 8.9 percent to 30.3 million tons by the end of 2023.

The flow of general cargo and bag cargo rose 9.8 percent compared to 2022 to 25.2 million tons, and the flow of gas goods jumped 49.8 percent to 13.1 million British thermal units (MMBTU).

Then, the flow of goods such as vehicles also increased to reach 1.5 million units, up 8.4 percent from 2022.

The container flow increased by 1.1 percent to 429 thousand twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) in 2022. Since the handover of terminal operations, SPMT has continued to improve itself by carrying out a transformation process aimed at standardizing all ports managed throughout Indonesia. As for the transformation process, it began with standardization at Tanjung Intan Port, Cilacap.

SPMT, which was established in 2021, manages 32 port branches, some of which are managed by subsidiaries, namely PT Indonesia Kendaraan Terminal Tbk (IKT), Tanjung Priok Port (PTP), and PT Terminal Curah Utama (TCU).

To support the port transformation process, SPMT also implements an integrated multi-terminal port operating system called PTOS-M (Pelindo Terminal Operating System Multipurpose), which is a strategic initiative of Pelindo Group.

PTOS-M has an integrated architecture with other systems, such as a customer portal, ship service system, and financial service system.

Besides being integrated with several systems, PTOS-M has features that facilitate services such as online booking requests, operation planning, storage inventory, control, and monitoring.

In addition, Arif said, the business transformation carried out had an impact on increasing ton/ship/day productivity and a significant reduction in port stay and cargo stay.

To improve end-to-end services to service users and increase market share, SPMT implemented a program to upgrade the status of multipurpose terminals to dedicated terminals.

The terminals are Liquid Bulk Terminal (TCC) Ujung Baru, Dry Bulk Terminal (TCK) Ujung Baru, TCK IKD 2 and IKD 3 Belawan Port; TCC CPO Dock I and CPO II Bagendang Port; TCK Dock C and TCC Dock B inner side Dumai Port; TCK Multipurpose 2 Tanjung Intan Port, TCC Jetty 1 and 2 Bumiharjo Port; and TCC Martapura Baru Trisakti Port.

SPMT will continue to transform five terminals this year, namely Malahayati, Lhokseumawe, Parepare, Garongkong, and Lembar.

“Pelindo Multi Terminal determined not to stop transforming, optimizing operations, expanding business expansion, and improving the quality of Human Resources to be the best for Indonesia,” he said.
