Kamadjaja Logistics

Kamadjaja Logistics was founded by Hura Kamadjaja from Surabaya, in the province of East Java in 1968 when he was only 20 years old and armed with only a junior high school certificate. His days were spent on ships that docked at various ports in Bali, Nusa Tenggara Barat & Nusa Tenggara Timur as well as Sulawesi to offer, trade or exchange goods that were not available in the surrounding areas.

A Catholic school was being built in Pejawa, Nusa Tenggara Timur at that time and the principal of the school required building materials. Hura tried his best to send the goods on passenger ships and was successful in this venture.

Four years later, Hura Kamadjaja opened his first office to offer expedition services in Surabaya. Rather than working on ships, he specialized in expedition services to the parts of Indonesia that he already had a strong network. This achievement was made possible by his persistence and strong belief in his vision. His strong focus on personal relationships is the philosophy that subsequently became the foundations for the values and work ethics at Kamadjaja Logistics.
