David Wignall founder of David Wignall Associates believes that the overwhelming capacity constraints are forcing the Indonesian authorities to look at improving and expanding port infrastructure in the country.
“The high-level of utilization at container terminals, the demand need for petroleum product imports as well as the continuing growth in coal exports means that port development across the archipelago has risen to the top of the political agenda. These are the things sitting on the President’s desk as critical to solve. The port law issued in 2008 was intended to provide reform well now is the time for ports in Indonesia to deliver. If not now, when?"

Dr. Mark Yong, Associate Director, for BMT Asia Pacific, believes that with this infrastructure development, Indonesia can skip past the learning stage and place more emphasis on the adopting of new technologies to further sophisticate their ports.
“I would say Indonesia would be able to capture more main line vessels as opposed to shipping in Singapore and various other places; but to catch a larger vessel they have to start being more efficient. This will lower the cost of shipping – and the cost of inter-island transportation will be reduced therefore, driving up the kind of domestic commerce needed for the economy. In my view this will eventually happen. There might be a rush for many private port operations and like any beginning; there are lots of private ports already rushing in. There might be a short-medium term of capacity leading to some bloodshed, but in long term, Indonesia will benefit,” said Dr. Yong.
