Pelindo III seeks to expand into non-core businesses to boost revenues

State-owned port management company PT Pelindo III wants to expand beyond its core business as part of its efforts to increase revenues this year to Rp 2 trillion (US$150 million), above its initial target of Rp 1.65 trillion. PT Pelindo III president director Ari Ashkara said the three main port services that the company has provided – passenger terminals, boat tugging and piloting, and loading services – were limited to the ports. He said the company also had plans to try to enter the energy sector through cooperation with fellow government-owned firms, such as oil and gas firm Pertamina and electricity firm PLN. He added that PT Pelindo III is also considering expanding into heavy machinery logistics. With all the expansion plans, the company hopes to increase the revenues of its non-core business from 30 percent to 40 percent of its total revenues. As for the three port services the company offers, 70 percent of the overall revenues come from loading services and 27 percent from ship tugging and piloting, and only 3 percent from passenger services.
