JICT wins Asian container
port award

JAKARTA: Indonesia’s largest shipping terminal, the Jakarta International Container Terminal (JICT), received an Asian Freight and Supply Chain Award (AFSCA) as the best container terminal with less than four million twenty-foot equivalent units handling capacity.

JICT president director Helman Sembiring, who represented the company at the award ceremony in Singapore on Wednesday, said the award reflected JICT’s commitment to providing world-class port facilities.

“We are proud to become the first Indonesian port operator to be acknowledged in Asia for best service quality and technology innovation in facilitating the port infrastructure development in Indonesia,” he said in a statement Friday.

JICT is a joint venture between Hong Kong-based leading port operator Hutchinson Port Holdings, state-owned port operator PT Pelindo II and the Maritime Employees’ Cooperative. — JP
