Taiwan-based global freight and transportation specialist Dimerco is leveraging its strong presence in Indonesia.
Working closely with local strategic alliance partner PT Uniair Indotama Cargo, Dimerco is providing a wide range of logistics services in Indonesia, particularly from Batam, where the Free Trade Zone (FTZ) is proving a useful alternative for Taiwan based companies.
“Our customs clearance brokerage service offers a window for import and export products, connecting Indonesia with the rest of the world,” Dimerco CEO Mr. Edward Lin explains. “The whole process of moving products to market is critical and our strength in Indonesia – from freight forwarding, customs clearance, warehousing, value added services and last mile delivery for cross-border e-commerce – is delivering a key competitive advantage for our customers, particularly at this challenging time.”
With a domestic network in Indonesia including over 100 branches and agents, delivering to more than 3,000 districts and destinations, Dimerco’s strategic partner, PT Uniair Indotama Cargo, currently operates in Jakarta -including airport & seaport offices, as well Surabaya, Batam Island and Semarang.
Batam is a strategic area in South East Asia for the smartphone industry, where companies can outsource the production of 4G smartphones, with more reliable resources. As a designated Free Trade Zone, Batam Island is under the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) and is exempt from import duties, sales tax, VAT, tax luxury goods, divergence and customs. It is also situated close to Singapore which provides a convenient gateway to ship the freight to surrounding countries without incurring an additional burden of customs duty and taxes.
Mr. Edward Lin concludes, “We have near 30 years’ experience operating in Indonesia, so our knowledge and network make the inbound and outbound process from and to Batam easy for our customers; with our Jakarta office, we can connect to the rest of Indonesia and via Dimerco’s Singapore office, connect to the rest of the world.”
