Vessel Mooring Tariff to Rise, What’s the Impact to Logistics Sector?
The Transportation Ministry will increase the vessel-mooring tariff as a strategy to boost non-tax revenue (PNBPP) in the transportation sector, which is increasingly sluggish during the COVID-19 pandemic. Transportation Minister Budi Karya Sumadi said the cost of mooring ships at ports and other tariffs at private ports would be increased to cover the drop in PNBP for air and rail transportation.
"Currently, we are not able to maximize non-tax revenues. We are working on non-tax revenues from the marine sector, which relatively can be added,” he said. Budi said the target of the tariff increase is private ports outside Java, such as Sulawesi, Kalimantan, and Sumatra, which have seen an increased flow of transportation of goods. The Transportation Ministry has set a PNBP target of Rp 6.08 trillion by the end of 2020. Until November 16, 2020, PNBP collected was Rp 5.3 trillion or 87.19 percent of the target.
