Upstream Textile Industry: Do Not Ban Goods Transportation During Lebaran Holidays PDF Print E-mail
Written by Maizer

The Indonesian Fiber and Filament Producers Association (APSyFI) has demanded that restrictions on goods transportation during the long holiday period be regulated to be more balanced and accommodate various interests.

 

APSyFI Secretary General, Redma Gita Wirawasta said that basically it was very supportive of policy to regulate goods transportation especially through toll roads related to prediction of traffic flow density in the Eid holiday period. "In order to be able to accommodate various interests including industrial interests, we hope the government, especially the Police and the Ministry of Transportation can continue to work extra as in previous years" explained Redma

 

On the other hand, APSyFI is asking the Ministry of Industry and Ministry of Trade to sort out the industrial and trade sectors that are in dire need of goods transportation during the Eid holiday. "There are a number of industrial sectors that are very critical if they are subject to transportation restrictions due to the reasons for their industrial character which must run 24 hours a day for 365 days a year" he added.

 

Like the fiber manufacturing sector whose technology is not possible to stop, with bulk silo systems that can only accommodate raw materials for a maximum of 3 days, restrictions on transportation of raw materials for more than 2 consecutive days will result in production failure and losses of hundreds of millions of USD. "So if raw materials cannot be supplied for more than 2 days, the machine must be turned off for 1 month, so in total the downstream industry, namely the textile industry and textile products, will lack raw materials for the next 1 month," he explained.

 

Transportation for export purposes is also another thing that must be considered by the government because there are no Eid holidays for export destinations. "Our exports will be very disturbed if transportation is prohibited and the port is closed during the Eid holiday," explained Redma. Not only during holidays but also affects the credibility of domestic producers in the eyes of buyers, so Redma proposes that the ban on transportation for export and port operational time is only carried out 2 days during Lebaran.

 

Regarding this year's Lebaran holiday, APSyFI estimates that the peak density of homecoming can occur on May 31 and June 1, while for backflow it is estimated to occur on June 8 and 9. For this reason, APSyFI proposes that the operational prohibition of freight trucks only occurs at peak flow back and forth. Whereas on the 3rd to the 7th, there can be imposed conditional restrictions which are open and closed depending on the conditions in the field.

 

For this year's Eid holiday, APSyFI still asks the Ministry of Transportation to pay more attention to input from industry. APSyFI also requested that the decision be taken and socialized one month earlier so that the industry could make careful planning. "Indeed, homecoming matters are very important for the Indonesian people, but the problems of the industrial economy are also important.
