04 November, 2016 | Source: Antara News

The Indonesia Port Corporation, PT Pelabuhan Indonesia (Pelindo) I, will build seaport infrastructure that supports food logistics transportation in order to reduce shipping costs and improve the quality of food products, Pelindo I Director Bambang Eka Cahyana said.

 

"Right now we are paying attention to the food sector. In Belawan, North Sumatra, this year we are building a cold storage," Bambang Eka said here on last Thursday.

Cold storage, he added, can retain the quality of food products before they are exported overseas.

The construction of cold storage in Belawan is a short-term plan for Pelindo I.

Meanwhile, the medium-term plan of the company is to build a specialized cluster for food processing in Tanjung Balai port, North Sumatra.

"During this time food processing has not received full attention. If we strengthen the cluster at the port, it will lower logistics costs," he said.

Bambang said for the long-term project, Pelindo I will build food processing infrastructure at all seaports throughout the country that are under its management.
