New Study Focuses on Inland Shipping Project in Indonesia

A consortium consisting of PT BITA Enarcon Engineering, Maritime & Transport Business Solutions (MTBS) and lead contractor Witteveen+Bos Indonesia was commissioned recently to study the feasibility of an inland shipping route between the industrial area in the Cikarang/Bekasi region and the Port of Tanjung Priok.

The contract was awarded by PT Pengembang Pelabuhan Indonesia. The route will be a vital link in the local transport chain.

In Indonesia, inland shipping has never been developed at this scale before, making the project unique.

The study will focus on the financial and technical feasibility of transporting goods between the industrial yards in the Cikarang/Bekasi region and the Port of Tanjung Priok via the existing Cikarang Bekasi Laut (CBL) Canal.

It will examine whether the construction and exploitation of a new inland shipping terminal and the use of inland vessels and flatboats will be a cost-efficient and practical alternative for road and rail transport in the Cikarang/Bekasi region.

The project will involve the development of a 200 ha inland shipping terminal near the Cikarang industrial zone along the CBL Canal, including its access routes.

In addition, the study will explore the options for making the existing 25 km CBL Canal – which also plays a crucial role in draining off excess water from the Cikarang river during flooding periods – suitable for container transport between the Port of Tanjung Priok and the new CBL terminal.
