Cibitung. Transportation and logistics firm Kamadjaja Logistics on Thursday kick started its commercial operation of K-Log Park Cibitung, a Rp 500 billion ($38.8 million) integrated park.
The logistics center, which covers a total area of 18 hectares, is set to become a logistics hub to help companies reduce costs by providing a range of services — from warehousing, distribution, domestic and international freight forwarding and land transportation to container yards, toll manufacturing and value added service — in an integrated complex.
Trade Minister Rahmat Gobel, Kamadjaja Logistics founder Hura Kamadjaja and Kamadjaja chief executive Ivan Kamadjaja were on hand to witness the launching ceremony.
“We will soon enter a new era that will see the implementation of the [Association of Southeast Asian Nations],” Ivan said in his opening speech.
“We have no doubt that [Kamadjaja is] ready to compete in the both regional and global scale.”
“The K-Log Park Cibitung is expected to help reduce logistics costs in our country,” he added.
The new logistic park is accessible through three major tollways: the Jakarta Outer Ring Road 1, the Jakarta Outer Ring Road 2, as well as the Jakarta-Cikampek toll road.
In addition to the latest Cibitung facilities, Kamadjaja Logistics operates similar parks, also called K-Log, in Medan, North Sumatera, and Surabaya in East Java.
The logistics company currently operates 22 distribution centers across the archipelago.
According to the company’s official website, Kamadjaja Logistics has served a slew of major multinational and local business groups, including Swiss-based manufacturer of building materials Holcim, food and beverage giant Nestle, oil and gas firm Shell, consumer goods company Unilever and Indonesian beverage maker Sosro.
