Shipping

Modified Container for Vehicle Storage in Ro-Ro Vessel
Conceptual Design of Container Modification as a Vehicle Storage in Ro-Ro Vessel

Student: Irwan Tri Yunianto (4105100033)
Year: 2010
Supervisors: Dr.-Ing. Setyo Nugroho
Field of Study: Shipping


TA IrwanThe number of motorcycles using ferry services has been increasing every year. The average number of motorcycles in the Merak – Bakauheni increased by 17%, while in the Ketapang – Gilimanuk increased by 13% per year. Since motorcycles occupy only a fraction of the volume of the vehicle’s deck space on a Ro-Ro vessel, there are still plenty of empty spaces on motorcycles. Under these conditions bring up an idea of modification container as a tool of motorcycle storage on board (Ro-Ro vessel). With the utilization of the rest of car deck can increase the capacity of loading space especially to increase the service of motorcycle crossings. Assuming that the dimensions and weight are the same as the VI-Class vehicle the revenue gained by the ship operator can increase by up to 30%. In addition, using modified containers can improve safety for motorcycle riders, because the riders must place motorcycles into containers and must stay to the passenger deck.

Floating Container Depot
Conceptual Design of Floating Container Depot

Student: Galilea Prima Khristianto (4105100065)
Year: 2010
Supervisor: Ir. Tri Achmadi, Ph.D.
Field of Study: Shipping


TA GalileaThe high utilization rate of container yard at Port of Tanjung Perak reached by 85% in 2010, causing Indonesia Port Corporation III (Pelindo III) to take anticipatory steps by opening new land as a temporary container yard. On the other hand there is no available land around the port area to serve as a temporary container yard. Therefore, the objective of this study is to provide an alternative to the conceptual design of floating container depot as an effort to solve the problem of limited container cargo landings that occur in the area around the port and produce better Turn Round Time (TRT) of the vessel. The results of the analysis suggest that the use of floating container depot might increase the TRT of ships to 14% compared to the use of land depot under current conditions.

Floating Public Health Center
Fleet Planning and Public Health Center Ship Operation for Archipelago Area: A Case Study of Kangean Islands, East Java

Student: Moh. Siswanto (4106100073)
Year: 2010
Supervisor: I.G.N. Sumanta Buana, S.T., M.Eng.
Field of Study: Shipping


Puskesmas terapungHealth services are vital for the people especially those domiciled in small islands in Indonesia. The existence of hospitals located in the city center is less effective to be reached by people on small islands. Therefore, it is necessary to make the residents able to enjoy the health service facilities although constrained by the geographical situation in each island, by using floating public health center. This study aims to plan the operation scheme of floating public health center around the Kangean Islands. The optimization method used is Tabu Search and Vehicle Routing Problem with Time Windows (VRPTW). Several operational scenarios are developed based on capacity and number of vessels, division of operations area and annual operating budget. This optimization process aims to maximize the number of ship visits in the operating area (point of demand) with an annual operating budget constraint. The optimization results show that the division of work area into two areas with ship operation scheme of two times per week.

Coal Transport Simulation Using Web Based Programming
Simulation of Coal Transport Operation Using Web Based Programming

Student: Jauhari Alafi (4106100045)
Year: 2012
Supervisors: Dr.-Ing. Setyo Nugroho and Firmanto Hadi, S.T., M.Sc.
Field of Study: Shipping, Information Technology


TA JauhariIndonesia is the world’s largest coal producer with a total production of 350 million tons in 2011. Kalimantan is one of the main coal producers in Indonesia with unique geographical conditions, the mine site is located in the hinterland, meaning to reach it through a river channel by barge. Constraints commonly experienced in the coal transportation is the sedimentation of Barito river during the dry season, so the barge faces the obstacle during its operation. When that happens, a river that can usually be skipped by a barge to a capacity of 5,000 tons, must reduce its load by 2,000 tons to cross the river. Even when at the lowest water level conditions, barges can not operate at all. Therefore, this study aims to plan coal transport operations in the water subsidence level retardation with the method of simulation web-based programming. The simulation results show that the total cost for the option of no transport at the shallow river is Rp 81 million, while the total cost for the option of transport in the case of sedimentation is Rp 55 million. The best scenario in achieving the sales target by choosing option 2, i.e. by continuing to operate the existing barge in the sedimentation condition even though the barge can not sail with full payload.

TA DwikyTraditional Shipping (Pelra) has an important role in supporting the sustainability of sea transportation in Indonesia. Flexibility and low price are the advantages possessed by Pelra ships that still dominate the voyages for small islands. However, in order to serve goods and documents, Pelra is still done traditionally, it is necessary to improve the performance of Pelra, especially on non-physical solutions. Therefore, this study aims to design the intelligent transportation system (ITS) of Pelra which includes the design of Organizational Architecture, Functional Architecture, Communication and Physical to become the basis in determining the architecture framework of market acquisition based Pelra-mobile-application. Cost-benefit analysis is used to determine the amount of benefits gained on the use of ITS Architecture design. The results of this study obtained that cutting the process of information transfer can reduce losses due to the occurrence of risk.

TA HasanPort of Petrokimia Gresik is one of dedicated ports that is operated to support the company’s activities (PT Petrokimia Gresik). This study aims to find out the relationship between increasing the company’s production with the operational activities in the port as well as to make an optimum dry bulk layout optimization model. In determining the most optimal layout model with discrete simulation approach is using Arena software. The results of the analysis show that the company’s production increase by an average of 7.7% per year, followed by an increase in port facilities utility: Berth Occupancy Ratio of 2%, Shed Occupancy Ratio of 1.2% and Yard Occupancy Ratio of 0.6% . In order to support the increasing of the company’s production, it is necessary to add port facilities by considering the optimum layout. Based on the simulation and calculation results obtained the optimum layout by adding port facility, such as: berth length of 170 m on the north side, a warehouse measuring 60 m x 48 m x 8 m and 65 m x 50 m piling field with a distance of 1.600 m from the berth.

Field of Study: Port, Management and Economics


TA MarizkaLamong Bay Terminal will be the first multipurpose terminal in Indonesia that applies environment-friendly concept (Green Port). The eco-friendly concept adopted is the use of electric loading and unloading equipment and an environmentally friendly port facility with renewable resources. With this concept is expected to have a positive impact on the environment, particularly the reduction of air pollution due to emissions arising from the use of loading and unloading equipment and port facilities. The purpose of this study is to analyze the port and externality cost of Green Port (Lamong Bay Terminal) and Non-Green Port (Nilam Terminal) from the use of container crane, truck and yard crane. Port costs include investment, operational costs and maintenance costs of loading and unloading equipment and port facilities, while externalities represent emission costs resulting from the use of loading and unloading equipment and other port facilities. The analysis results show that the total cost of Green Port port is 19% lower than that of Non-Green Port.

Port Development of Livestock
Conceptual Design of Livestock Port Development: A Case Study of Port of Kalbut Situbondo

Student: Arrazi Rustam (4412100009)
Year: 2016
Supervisors: Christino Boyke SP, S.T., M.T. and Hasan Iqbal Nur, S.T., M.T.
Field of Study: Port


TA ArraziOne of the livestock population centers is located in Madura island especially in Sapudi island. According to data from UPP Kalbut Situbondo sending cattle from Sapudi Island around 60-70 tails/week, while at the peak season rose to 100 tails/week. However, the loading and unloading activities of livestock in Kalbut Port are carried out by throwing into the sea, causing injured animals to even shrink the weight. Port development becomes one of the options to solve the problem by developing loading and unloading facilities. There are three port development alternatives that are (1) construction of concrete pier, (2) dredging accompanied by addition of truck and “garbarata” for livestock and (3) construction of floating dock by HDPE and two breasting dolphin. The results of the analysis show that the alternative development of floating dock by HDPE and breasting dolphin is a workable development solution as it produces the minimum total cost and environmentally friendly.

Student: Agsari Aulia Pamudji (4107100073)
Year: 2012
Supervisor: Ir. Tri Achmadi, Ph.D.
Field of Study: Maritime Logistics


TA AgsariIndonesia is the largest archipelagic country in the world consisting of large islands and some small island clusters that are required to have an efficient and effective logistics system. World Bank Publications on Logistic Performance Index (LPI) in 2010 placed Indonesia on the order of 75 out of 155 countries. The result of this LPI is less reflective of the archipelago area of Indonesia, so it needs to be made a review on the preparation of logistics index in accordance with the characteristics of Indonesia. This study aims to find out indicators that reflect the condition of Indonesia as archipelagic country and to understand how to measure the logistics performance index. The number of logistics performance indicators determined is five indicators by considering several factors, namely Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-bounded and Continuously Improvement. The areas sampled in this study are Surabaya, Jakarta, Makassar, East Nusa Tenggara Islands, and Maluku Islands. Logistic performance index measurement is done by creating a mathematical model that contains the index preparation and weighting of indicators performed by Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) method. Data used as inputs are ship operational data, ports, tariffs, questionnaire survey data and interviews. The data were then tested in a mathematical model resulting in an index of each island, namely Maluku Islands = 2.85, East Nusa Tenggara Islands = 2.78, and Makassar = 2.95.

Field of Study: Maritime Logistics


TA Ade JunifarDistribution development is important in supporting the development of food security, especially distribution in areas that have the need for a particular food. Seeing the maritime potential of Indonesia, the distribution of food can be developed by using sea transportation. One type of food that many people need to consume is milk. In addition, for being healthy, milk also has many derivative products such as cheese and yogurt that also have important nutritional content. Supply Chain Management through the sea lane is conducted in two sectors, namely the upstream sector (Inbound) from milk storage to processing plants, and downstream (Outbound) from processing plants to markets. Delivery options are carried out using three conveyance means, i.e. reefer container, reefer tank container for upstream sector, with delivery options through forwardings and shipping lines, and downstream sector only using 20 ft containers with the same shipping options. By using the sea lane, the cooperative has a greater advantage, namely by using the option of 40 ft container, with the services of shipping line. While the processing factory is more profitable by using the services of shipping line for specific route of Surabaya to Denpasar.

Field of Study: Maritime Logistics


TA FitrohChicken meat is one of main commodities consumed by Indonesian people. The price of chicken meat in the market especially in Eastern Indonesia can reach twice of chicken meat price in Surabaya. The process of sending frozen chicken from Surabaya to East Indonesia, i.e. Ambon, Sorong, Nabire, and Jayapura is done by reefer container (20 feet) through several domestic ports such as Ambon, Makassar, Sorong, Manokwari, Bau-Bau and will be headed at the port of destination. The cost of shipping is quite expensive resulting in the sale price of frozen chicken that affects the selling point in the market area of ​​Eastern Indonesia. This study aims to determine the best route in the process of sending frozen chicken from Surabaya to Eastern Indonesia based on minimum cost and delivery time criteria. One of the important variables to be considered is the shipping freight rates and the transit time on the port that will affect the total shipping cost. The use of optimization methods with minimum unit cost as the main criterion provides a solution of delivery route selected along with the optimal mode of transportation for each destination.

Field of Study: Maritime Logistics


TA ViviBeef is the main meat commodity in Indonesia. One of the areas with the highest consumption of beef is DKI Jakarta, where in the fulfillment of meat demand is supplied by the cattle supplier of East Nusa Tenggara (NTT). However, the condition of cattle delivery from NTT – Jakarta is not in line with animal welfare, so cattle vessel is operated with capacity of 500-cattle with the aim to lower the beef price in Jakarta. In the operation of the vessel on the second and third shipments are not charged because the owner of the cattle prefer to use the old way delivery. Hence, it is necessary to analyze the comparison of cattle distribution with the old way delivery and by cattle vessel within the route of NTT-Jakarta. The purpose of this research is to find out the chosen mode of cattle delivery and its operation scheme from NTT – Jakarta based on three aspects, i.e. unit of shipping cost, delivery time from farm to slaughterhouse, and beef production. The methods used in this research are comparative and optimization methods. Based on the calculation results obtained the port to port operation scheme of Larantuka – Jakarta and Waingapu – Jakarta, and multi-port operation scheme is Tenau Kupang – Ende – Jakarta and Maumere – Labuan Bajo – Jakarta. The total number of fleets required for one year of 52 fleets with a capacity of 500-cattle per fleet.

Year: 2016
Field of Study: Shipping


freight calculator

PT. PLN (Persero) as a state-owned enterprise responsible for the provision of national electricity is required to maintain the availability of electricity supply in line with the increasing national electricity demand. The main problem in efforts to maintain the availability of national electricity supply is to maintain the continuity of its primary energy supply. One of the efforts is to increase power plants by using primary energy that is still quite a lot of reserves and the relatively cheap price, which is coal. Because coal requirement as primary energy for power plant is main priority and transportation service required to transport coal from mining site to PLTU location, hence freight cost component of coal distribution become one of considered factors for PT. PLN (Persero) in the process of coal procurement.

The purpose of this study is to obtain standardized (formulation) method of calculation and costing in freight of coal component academically (based on the prevailing theory) in an effort to improve the efficiency of coal transportation. The outputs of this study include the determination of the freight rate for coal transport by using three alternative modes i.e. Barge, Vessel and SPB (Self-Propelled Barge).

The results of freight rate calculations show that the larger ship size (capacity) means a low unit cost produced, but it does not mean that mode used is the most efficient. It is due to several factors to be considered among others: a) water depth limitations port, b) wave conditions and c) limits on the amount of cargo transported.

Operational Performance of Jetty Calciner
Study of Jetty Calciner Operational Performance in Dumai

Year: 2014
Field of Study: Port


The existence of cooperation between PT. Pertamina (Persero) Refinery Unit II Dumai and a Chinese Partner who intends to reactivate the Calcined Petroleum Coke (CPC) management through the Horizontal Rotary Kiln facility with a capacity of 300,000 tonnes, which has stopped operating since 1994 due to damage. To be able to produce CPC is required raw materials of GPC (High Sulfur Contents) that can be imported from another place. The import GPC will use Jetty No. 4 (previously it was only used for loading facility of product to be exported), currently it becomes facility of loading exported product and unloading imported product for raw material blend of Coke. Therefore, PT. Pertamina (Persero) Refinery Unit II Dumai in cooperation with ITS (Department of Marine Transportation Engineering) agree to conduct a study on the impact of operational changes of Jetty No. 4 either from the aspect of its cargo handling or the aspect of Berth Occupancy Ratio (BOR).

Scope of analysis on this study include:

  1. Literature study of port operations
  2. Identification of existing condition through survey activity
  3. Analysis of jetty operational performance
  4. Create a jetty operational simulation model

The result of the simulation model shows that the BOR value due to the change of operational scheme is still below the maximum BOR limit (<80%) so it is not necessary. Meanwhile, the sensitivity analysis shows the BOR value exceeds the maximum limit (> 80%) when GPC-RU II Production is 420,000 TPA, and all ships coming of 10,000 DWT accompanied by a 40% loading-unloading speed drop.

Shifting the Incoterms (FOB to CIF) on Indonesian Export Products
Evaluating the Shift in Incoterms on Indonesian Export Products

Year: 2016
Field of Study: Maritime Logistics


FOB vs CIF

The Ministry of Trade of the Republic of Indonesia with the support of the World Bank take an effort to draft a new policy to increase the participation of national companies to improve the Indonesian economy. The policy options to use a CIF (Cost, Insurance and Freight) on export activity and a FOB (Free on Board) on import activity will be able to realize the expectations with the hypothesis that the policy could increase the role of shipping companies, freight forwarders and national insurance companies. To identify the opportunities by implementing that policy, the World Bank has appointed ITS (Department of Marine Transport) to conduct a study evaluating the shift in the Terms of Delivery (ToD) exports from FOB to CIF with case studies on four export commodities, namely crude palm oil (CPO) , coal, rubber and shrimp. The reason why these commodities are chosen because they represent 66% of the total export volume of Indonesia in 2015.

The main problems in this study are:

  1. Is the policy changes on export trade terms from FOB to CIF for Indonesian main export commodities possible?
  2. Would that policy give benefit for Indonesian economy?

Based on the analysis, from all four major export commodities, palm oil and coal have the chance to be transported to the Indonesian-flagged vessels, because of the high market share (high bargaining position for Indonesian exporters). If this is implemented then there will be a potential deficit reduction in transportation services by 37.15%. The change of terms for export commodities from FOB to CIF does not mean having to use Indonesian-flagged vessels. Exporters may still use foreign-flagged vessels, but this can not reduce the deficit on the transport of export goods in Indonesia.
