JAKARTA - PT Kereta Api Indonesia (Persero) will rely on rail express services to increase revenue amid the COVID-19 pandemic. This was conveyed by Didiek Hartaantyo, President Director of PT KAI (Persero) in Jakarta on Monday (28/9).

He said that rail express was a freight service using trains that is cheap, fast and safe. "We enter a sector that is directly related to customers," he said.
