Maersk: Indonesia port access a problem

Joko “Jokowi” Widodo, Indonesia’s president, has made upgrading the country’s ports infrastructure one of his priorities.

As an archipelago of more than 13,000 islands, the maritime industry is key to the fortunes of the country and to the continued development of its trade relationships.

Criticisms of the existing ports infrastructure include the limited size of second-tier ports, inconsistencies of rules, turnaround times and the lack of a nationwide framework.
