INDONESIA – PT FPS Indonesia has opened its new branch office for Tanjun Priok, Jakarta’s main port. The office, which is part of the Famous Pacific Shipping group’s logistics and freight-forwarding association, will handle freight through the port from its location in Tangerang.

PT FPS Indonesia’s MD, Hendi Hendratmoko, says that: “The investment we have made in this office shows that we are in the market for the long term. At a time when business optimism in much of the market is low, this strategic opening shows our clients that FPS is a brand they can continue to trust.

Mr. Hendratmoko added that the new branch office was ideally placed to cater for the needs of a number of large companies involved in the Indonesian import/export markets, saying: “There is massive logistics business potential in the furniture, shoe, metal, textile and chemical industries.”

At the same time the company has been able to confirm that it has achieved ISO9001:2008 recertification for its offices in Surabaya, Semarang and Jakarta.

Hendratmoko asserted that this proves PT FPS’ dedication to providing solid service to its customers and adaption to a tougher trading climate.
