The National Logistics Growth Penetrates 8%, CKB Logistics Optimizes Business Through Air Cargo


The Indonesian Logistics Association (ALI) estimates that the national logistics sector will experience growth of seven to eight percent this year. It's no wonder that the logistics business plays a role in invigorating the national economy while also increasing the efficiency of handling other commodities.

Considering this situation, a subsidiary of PT ABM Investama Tbk (ABMM), namely PT Cipta Krida Bahari (CKB Logistics), is revitalizing its air cargo business to meet customer needs in line with high demand ahead of the long holiday period during Eid al-Fitr.

To provide adequate service to customers, CKB Logistics operates a fleet of Boeing 737-300F with a capacity of 15-16 tons on the Jakarta-Balikpapan-Timika-Jayapura route. The aircraft operates four times a week. "With the increasing demand for logistics services, especially air freighter services, ahead of Eid al-Fitr 2024, CKB Logistics is committed to providing optimal logistics solutions for business partners and customers during the long holidays and approaching Eid al-Fitr. We also prioritize customer satisfaction so that customer goods arrive safely and on time," said Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of CKB Logistics, Iman Sjafei.

"In addition to its large capacity, the advantages of CKB Logistics include having a fixed schedule, competitive rates, the ability to carry cargo with large dimensions and weights of up to 3-4 tons per shipment, having permits to carry Dangerous Goods (DG) with aircraft cargo specifications, door-to-door service, and integrated customized services with CKB Logistics services," explained Iman.

Not only committed to meeting the logistical needs of customers and business partners, this company, which is over 26 years old, also prioritizes operational and safety excellence, resulting in zero workplace accidents throughout last year.

CKB Logistics commitment to implementing Good Corporate Governance (GCG) is also evident in its use of environmentally friendly operational fleets, skylight warehouses, circular waste utilization, and the implementation of Environmental Social Governance (ESG) and sustainable Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Thanks to its commitment to providing the best logistics solutions for customers, this ABM Investama subsidiary was awarded "Air Freight Forwarder of The Year" at the Bisnis Indonesia Awards 2023.

The awards received by CKB Logistics don't stop there. In the same year, the company also won Warehouse Provider of the Year at the Indonesia Logistics Awards 2023, 3PL Company of the Year at the Indonesia Logistics Awards 2023, and Gold Achievement in the Services category at the OPEXCON Awards 2023.

Due to its business momentum, CKB Logistics has obtained Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) status, which has earned the company recognition from the Directorate General of Customs and Excise. It's no wonder the company has received special customs treatment for meeting World Customs Organization (WCO) standards.

For reference, CKB Logistics business scope includes transportation management, warehouse management, remote supply services, cargo delivery, loading and unloading, logistics services and delivery of large items, Bonded Logistics Centers (PLB), port management, and coal barge services.
