Indonesian logistics PT Humpuss Intermoda Transportasi plans to enter the port construction and infrastructure business.
The company is to provide dredging services, land reclamation works and possibly port construction to support the government’s ‘Maritime Highway’ plan to improve connectivity between islands in the Indonesian archipelago.
Humpuss president-director Theo Lekatompessy told national press the diversification aims to increase the value of the business to support the company’s future growth. Humpuss Intermoda currently focuses in the transport of LNG, fuels and coal.
Humpuss’ port infrastructure business may cooperate with Dutch or Belgian companies, Lekatompessy continued.
The company also has plans to provide cargo ship services between Tanjung Priok and Panjang in Lampung. Merak Port in Banten is nearing maximum capacity with RoRo traffic, especially trucks going to and from Lampung, which Humpuss says presents an opportunity.
