IPCC notices an increase in cargo services
JAKARTA – PT Indonesia Kendaraan Terminal Tbk (IPCC) reports an increment in the number of cargo services throughout August 2021, during level 3 and 4 of Community Activities Restriction Enforcement (PPKM,) compared to August 2020. Corporate Secretary of IPCC, Sofyan Gumelar, reveals in the information disclosure, quoted Monday (13/9).
According to Gumelar, the COVID-19 pandemic had indirectly affected operational activities. However, the company tries its best so that all port users can still obtain access to the services accordingly. “IPCC does not terminate or limit operational activities despite the pandemic; the port is still active and running,” he confirms.
As of August 2021, cargo for CBU vehicles in the international field totals 22,269 units. It increases 48.25% from last year. Additionally, it manages shipment for heavy equipment of 1,236 units, soaring 105.66%, while general cargo amounts to 4,154 m3, also growing 9.11%.
In the domestic field, CBU vehicles load is recorded to reach 15,137 units, proliferating 100.20% from the same period last year. The heavy equipment cargo contains 1,762 units, 21.94% higher than last year, while general cargo equals 1,090 m3, also increasing 25.97%.
The company is also making sure that all operational field workers obey the standard health procedures. These include regular PCR and swab tests for all employees and periodical disinfectant spray. “All partners working within the IPCC area are compelled to show a negative result on their antigen tests,” Gumelar reassures.
