DB Schenker’s inter-island trucking service seamlessly connects Indonesia’s many islands

Indonesia is one of the fastest-growing consumer markets in the world. However, Indonesia’s geography, with its many islands, presents significant challenges for companies that seek to take advantage of the growth opportunities. How to ensure goods arrive on time and undamaged at their destination?

With DB Schenker’s inter-island land transport service, companies benefit from a fully integrated, inter-island, trucking service that meets high, certified quality standards. With a high-quality fleet of trucks, an advanced TMS and the use of innovative tracking technology, DB Schenker offers integrated logistics services to and from the islands.

We do this by seamlessly integrating land transport and domestic ocean freight.

This inter-island, multimodal delivery service, offers convenient connections between Jakarta and West Java and East Java and inter-island to Banjarmasin, Pontianak, Palembang, and Makassar. In addition, we have fast connections outside Java, especially to Sumatra, Kalimantan, and Sulawesi.

Companies who use the intra land service, benefit from the upgrade of our truck fleet. In 2020 and 2021, we expanded our land transport operations by adding double deck wing box trucks to our fleet. These trucks not only carry more freight, but they also minimize the risk of damage during transport.

Improving the supply chain of a well-known Indonesian Beauty Brand

Recently, the Indonesian land team won a contract with an Indonesian beauty brand. Seamless, inter-island connectivity, and damage free transport are key for this customer.

To improve the supply chain, the team has worked on a freight solution that reduces the transit time from their manufacturing facility in Tangerang Jatake Industrial Estate, in outer Jakarta, to warehouses on Kalimantan, Sulawesi and Sumatra. Total transit time from Jakarta to Kalimantan and Sulawesi is eight days. Transit time from Jakarta to Palembang is between four and five days.

DB Schenker’s TMS allows the customer to schedule, save, compile, and analyze the transports.

Especially for inter-island shipping, with so many steps to make sure the cargo arrives on time at its destination, full visibility of the shipments is crucial. Each shipment is easy to track thanks to the e-Schenker tracking application for trucks. Thanks to e-Schenker the customer always has real time updates on the shipment progress.
