Strengthening its position as an international class bulk port, PT Krakatau Bandar Samudera (PT KBS) which operates the Krakatau International Port (KIP), cooperates with PT Melchers Melindo Indonesia, a partner of Hamburg Port Consulting, in an effort to develop the KIP port.

The CEO of Krakatau International Port (KIP), Akbar Djohan, said that with the target of increasing the number of ships stopping by from 800 to 5,000 ships/year in 2026 at KIP Port, indeed the development of infrastructure and superstructure facilities of KIP becomes highly imperative.

“For the development of KIP’s infrastructure and superstructure facilities to be maximized, KIP takes steps to cooperate with PT MMI to ensure that this development will run well,” said Akbar at Wisma Baja on Thursday (11/25/2021).

Akbar said KIP cooperated with PT MMI to assist in order to ensure that this development runs optimally, from the feasibility study process, the funding process, all the way to the implementation of the development.

“This KIP effort was also conceptualized in order to capture the market potential in the Sunda Strait, a step that is certainly not one to joke around with, we are preparing the development of the KIP port so that it has more complete facilities for consumer needs, so that we can provide the best service for consumers,” Akbar said.

The Memorandum of Undestanding (MoU) was held at Wisma Baja Jakarta (25/11), which was attended by KIP CEO Akbar Djohan and PT Melchers Melindo Indonesia (PT MMI) President Director Michael Gruss.

Meanwhile, the President Director of PT MMI, Michael Gruss said that KIP’s trust in MMI to assist the development of the KIP port is a highly positive step forward for MMI.

“We are ecstatic to be entrusted to accompany the development of the largest bulk port of KIP, we are ready to help and ensure that the efforts to develop this KIP run well so that the goal of the best service for KIP consumers can be achieved,” said Michael.
