Business operators in North Sumatra suffered losses of up to Rp1 billion each month due to a monopoly by PT Angkasa Pura II (Persero) at Kualanamu Airport.
MEDAN (infolog): Vice Chairman of the Indonesian Air Force Logistics and Forwarders Association (ILFA) – North Sumatra, Khairul Mahalli said the problem had become a tangled yarn and had to be resolved soon.
“The problem is the mechanism is not clear and does not involve business actors. If there is a partnership will not be like this, “he told Bisnis.com as quoted as saying in Jakarta, Thursday (26/4/2018).
The Commission for the Supervision of Business Competition (KPPU) ruled AP II guilty of monopolistic practices in the provision of terminal facilities for cargo and postal services sent and received through Kualanamu Airport.
The product market in question is airport-related services, in particular in relation to the provision and / or development of terminal facilities for cargo and postal freight services, as well as cargo and mail handling, including cargo and postal security check and control services.
KPPU also assessed the double rate when the Regulated Agent (RA) for outgoing cargo, and enactment of the Restricted Security Area (DKT) for incoming cargo.
Khairul explains all the goods out and in must be charged. In addition, the cost of RA in Kualanamu Airport is the highest in Indonesia at Rp1,000 per kilogram.
He requested that RA be immediately removed and thoroughly investigate this monopoly issue as productivity becomes lethargic.
“Making competitiveness in North Sumatra decreases, especially import and import inter-island exports,” Khairul concluded. (ac)
