goodmorningpapua.com – PT Pelayaran Nasional Indonesia or PT Pelni (Persero) for Serui Branch socializes the Sea Toll Road to reduce disparities in food prices at the Yapen Islands Regency, Papua.
This socialization is also a form of Pelni Serui’s commitment to fulfill regulatory standards and provisions in carrying out the assignment of Sea Toll Ships. The role imposed to Pelni is contained in KP DJPL 8 of 2022, regarding the establishment of a service route network for goods related to the Sea Highway.
“For 2022, Pelni is going to be appointed as Marine Toll Ship Operator with Route T9 for the eastern region, including Sarmi, Nabire, Wasior, Serui and Waren,” said Head of Operations of PT Pelni Serui Branch, Rais Akbar.
Based on the letter from the Ministry of Transportation of the Directorate General of Sea Transportation regarding the transportation of the Sea Toll Road, Pelni Serui will follow the specified regulations. Rais hopes that the presence of the Sea Toll Ship can reduce the disparity in the price of basic necessities.
“Entrepreneurs from Serui can send local commodities to Java by low freight rates, (because) so far, Serui has always been empty of cargo, entrepreneurs must also be able to maximize the existence of this Sea Toll properly,” he said.
The Sea Toll Ship is part of the Sea Toll Program initiated by the Government of the Republic of Indonesia President Joko Widodo in ensuring the distribution and availability of basic necessities and other important goods in Indonesia, especially at 3TP areas, namely deprived, remote, outermost and border areas.
For your information, the socialization of the Sea Toll Road was attended by relevant agencies ranging from the Yapen Transportation Service, Serui KUPP, Yapen Industry and Trade Office, PT SBN to animal and plant quarantine.
