Wujudkan Ekspansi Beyond The Gate, IPCC Bidik Area BIMP-EAGA

JAKARTA, TERASJAKARTA.ID - In line with one of the main programs, PT Indonesia Vehicle Terminal Tbk (IPCC) plans to explore cooperation with a number of parties for the management of the Vehicle Terminal along with a number of services within its ecosystem in the BIMP-EAGA area.

IPCC sees the potential for development of cooperation in this region. BIMP-EAGA  itself stands for Brunei Darussalam-Indonesia-Malaysia-Philippines East ASEAN Growth Area, which is one of the subregional economic cooperation formed in 1994 with the main objective of increasing economic cooperation and integration among its member regions.

As a maritime area, BIMP-EAGA offers a lot
opportunities for trade, investment, and tourism. These countries are also destination countries for vehicle exports from Indonesia, especially from the IPCC terminal.

Therefore, IPCC which is part of the Pelindo Group sees an opportunity for the development of mutually beneficial cooperation with various parties in these four countries.

On the other hand, this is also in line with the IPCC expansion development route for the management of vehicle terminals in Eastern Indonesia which is geographically close to the BIMP-EAGA area.

In his presentation entitled IPCC Strategy Towards Business Expansion and Collaboration, Rio T.N Lasse, Main Director of IPCC said that the BIMP area is a potential market for collaborative development of RORO services (RORO Services).

Moreover, if the capital city of Nusantara in Balikpapan is realized quickly, the RORO route to the BIMP area can be further improved so that it will be more effective and efficient.

With the spirit of Beyond The Gate, the Company is the manager
The Vehicle Terminal sees that this BIMP-EAGA Cooperation can have a positive impact on the Vehicle Terminal business and its ecosystem in the future. The BIMP area is a very potential market for collaborative RORO service development.

"On the other hand, the development of the RORO Terminal service can be further enhanced with the realization of the construction of the Nusantara Capital City located in Balikpapan where in this area we are also exploring Cooperation in the Management of a Vehicle Terminal with a standardized world class car terminal." Rio said on the sidelines of his presentation in a series of BIMP-EAGA Maritime 2023 activities.
