General Information


Formerly the activity was stressed on the shipping company's activities serving interisland for logs as the main commodity under the flag of PT Lintas Samudera. At the time, the status of invested capital was still "Foreign Investment".

In the line with the New Government Regulation on the logs exportation, management has decided to change the function of the vessels to become "Container-carrying Vessels" for rent until the year 1983.

In 1984, the company expanded its "door-to-door" activity covering Warehousing, Land Transportation and Container Yard as the Lines of Business. But since the Foreign Investor sold out all the stocks and due to uncomfortable business circumstances, the in charge person for "door-to-door" set up a new company called "P T Putera Lintas Kemas (PLK)" focusing the company on the International Freight Forwarding activities. All the invested capital was "Home Investment".

One year later, PLK has been an official member of INFFA/FIATA and in such a short time, PLK expanded its business being marked by the opening of several branch offices in some cities. They are: Semarang, Surabaya, Padang, Denpasar & Batam in line with the transportation network that can be served by the company more widely.

In 1988, besides developing Sea Transportation service, the Management of PLK have increased the volume of their Air Transportation activity. It even has become the backbone of the company.

Through a long and tireless struggle, eventually on May 17,1993 PLK has officialy become the member of IATA Organisation, meanwhile a New Representative Office at the Soekarno-Hatta Airport was open.

Hence, all the needed infrastructures to serve the customers optimally have been complete. The increase of sea and air transportation networks is very supported by PLK's partners spreading all over the world.

No wonder that all of transportation modes can be well designed. For instance, an interisland transportation to be continued by Sea Transport to be finally on board by Air Transport integratedly known as "Multi Modes Transport".
