The Port of Los Angeles and Indonesia Port Corporation (IPC) PT Pelabuhan Indonesia II (Persero) will team up to share best practices related to infrastructure, operations and trade competitiveness.

Officials from both ports recently inked a Memorandum of Understanding to collaborate on issues ranging from the environment to technology that boosts supply chain efficiency.

“Increased global competitiveness, supply chain innovation and the more widespread use of sustainable operations technology can only happen if ports join forces in earnest to share ideas and expertise,” said Port of Los Angeles Executive Director Gene Seroka. “This agreement today is another example of the Port of Los Angeles’ commitment to further promote international cooperation and collaboration across the globe.”

“PT Pelabuhan Indonesia II is excited to establish more formal ties with Port of Los Angeles to collaborate closely in the years ahead,” said Elvyn Gani Masassya, President Director of PT Pelabuhan Indonesia II (Persero). “From the environment to new technologies, business systems to infrastructure development, there is a great deal that we can learn from one another to improve operations and advance global trade, innovation and sustainability,” Masassya said.
