“The implementation of Inaportnet will accelerate the implementation of the National Single Window in Indonesia,” Pelindo II operational director Dana Amin said, referring to a scheme that seeks to simplify paperwork requirements for traders. He added that Indonesia is also a part of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations Single Window scheme.

The Indonesia National Single Window will allow exporters and importers to register and track all shipments in and out of the country. Processing exports and imports currently involves a lengthy procedure and a lot of paperwork.

The operational implementation of Inaportnet will be tested on July 1 in the Tanjung Priok harbor in North Jakarta.
