"JAGS will streamline the handling of containers moving in and out of the terminal. this part of an overall effort to increase terminal capacity and continually improve our service levels," said Albert Pang, President Director of Jakarta International Container Terminal.
JICT wil work closely with Organization of Jakarta"s Land Transportation or Organda (organisasi Pengusaha Angkatan Bermotor Di Jalan) DKI Jakarta, to ensure a smooth roll out of JAGS to terminal users. JICT has so far regitered 12.000 trucks and issued Truck Identification (TID) cards to trucking companies for access to the terminal.
JAGS is an adoption of a modern gate system that has a proven track record in other Hutchison Port Holding"s network of ports.
