“ By evenly developing the infrastructure in both western and eastern Indonesia, logistics companies would be able to minimise container backlogs. ”
My father founded Alamui Logistics as a transportation company which focuses on trucking, warehousing, and forwarding services. We specialise in handling and delivering goods across Indonesia which is supported by 250 staff members. We believe that our service quality depends on what is delivered by our staff members hence we provide training to hone in on skills such as two-way communication and ownership. Furthermore, we praise staff members that excel at their job and we consistently motivate them as we are confident that this positive reinforcement will trickle down to other employees.
Alamui Logistics’ target markets are companies that require all-encompassing logistics services. Our corporate strategy is to serve companies in the FMCG sector and in catering to this aspiration; we make available food grade boxes. Currently, Alamui’s FMCG clients are companies that manufacture candy, milk, and detergents. Our distribution channels for imports and exports are predominantly from companies based in China and Thailand.
Although there are companies that carry out a similar line of work as Alamui Logistics, our company’s advantages such as the utilisation of a GPS tracking system, our own fleet of trucks, our own warehouses, and stringent recruitment standards are our key strengths in the industry. Our adeptness in maintaining our standards as well as our facilities and employees enable us to operate throughout the years. We also have our own management division that is responsible for the reparation of our trucks thus reducing our operating costs. Alamui Logistics strives to become one of the most reliable logistics company in Indonesia thus we emphasise the importance of building strong relations with our customers.
The infrastructure projects that have been implemented under the Joko Widodo administration have helped us to become more efficient given that it has become less time-consuming. The unloading time has also decreased as it now only requires 2 – 3 days. We are confident that the government’s aim of speeding up its infrastructure developments will only serve to boost the growth of the business sector. In doing so, Alamui Logistics would be able to ship out goods at a much faster rate to far-to-reach places such as eastern Indonesia. By evenly developing the infrastructure in both western and eastern Indonesia, logistics companies such as Alamui Logistics would be able to minimise container backlogs. Moreover, we also believe that the sea toll project will also reduce logistics costs in Indonesia.
Among our innovation plans is to become a logistics company that possesses an upper-hand in IT infrastructure. We are looking to develop a system that will better integrate our logistics services such as improved delivery time. This investment will also enable our customers to track their shipments thus we are focused on realising this corporate strategy given the high demand from our clients. Furthermore, we are looking to establish an automated warehouse management system in anticipation of high labour costs that will likely occur in Indonesia within the next five years. This will enable us to reduce the number of workers for administrative tasks hence improving our human resource management process so as to ensure that our company employs no more than 250 staff members in the future.
Alamui Logistics is very interested in partnering with a company that would utilise our company’s logistics and transportation services in Indonesia as well as in overseas markets. The e-commerce industry will undoubtedly increase in terms of growth within five years and as such, we would like to take advantage of this prospective growth trajectory. In fact, we have been approached by a fast-emerging transportation company from Indonesia to support their transportation business operation who at the time showed interest in using our trucks. Currently, we are still exploring the various ways in which our trucks as well as our GPS tracking system can be utilised by e-commerce companies.
The AEC has brought about greater competition for small and medium enterprises in Indonesia. However, logistics companies face equal competition as we are all regulated under the same government laws. Staying ahead in the AEC will ultimately depend on how we manage the market and approach the customer as well as how to maintain our regional partnerships. An advanced IT system is an important factor that will play a role in the success of Indonesian logistics companies within the AEC.
As a company, Alamui Logistics is looking forward to expand our business internationally through the AEC. We are confident that this is the right time for local companies to push for exports and establish an international presence.
Our company’s strategy is not to compete with international companies, but instead we are focused on initiating partnerships. In fact, we previously worked with a Belgian company to develop our IT infrastructure. In regards to synergies, we are looking for a partner to expand our customer reach in wide-ranging sectors that will provide better access in establishing relations with senior-level management members.
Let us work towards integrating our world by streamlining the logistics industry. Alamui Logistics believes that our push for innovative measures will ensure that the delivery of your goods will be carried out safely and in a timely manner.
