Yusen starts air imports at Jakarta’s Halim airport

Yusen Logistics

Yusen Logistics Indonesia has opened air import operations at Jakarta’s Halim Perdanakusuma International Airport.

Yusen says the Halim service will improve urgent delivery requirements with the airport based in Central Jakarta, close to the East Jakarta Industrial Zone. Services will include enhanced visibility and transport management controls, such as freight status tracking at the airport bonded area, customs clearance and supervised vehicle loading. Yusen says delivery times will be considerably reduced due to road transportation to Halim being considerably quicker than to Soekarno-Hatta International Airport.

This is Yusen’s second expansion in Indonesia in less than a month; on 25 February it started consolidation airfreight forwarding from Semarang’s Achmad Yani International Airport. It says due to the poor infrastructure and Semarang’s vulnerability to flooding, the airfreight service will prove much more reliable than road transportation.
