Indonesia Unveils Plan for New Container Transshipment Terminal
According to The Journal of Commerce, Indonesia has unveiled a plan to build a major new container transshipment terminal designed to offer lines as alternative to Singapore and Tanjung Pelepas in Malaysia.
Work on the new Tanjung Sauh facility near Batam across the Singapore Strait from PSA’s Singapore facilities is due to begin next year with 4 million 20-equivalent units of transshipment capacity, expected to be available by 2015 along 2,000 meters of piers.
“The site would require only minimal dredging,” stated Richard J. Lino, the Indonesia Port Corporation chief executive.
