A Busines Director of PT Pelni’s Sea Toll and Goods Transportation  Yahya Kuncoro said that T-19 was launched in early 2021 by the Ministry of Transportation to answer the rice distribution problem for the Papua and West Papua regions.

“The government has assigned Pelni to ensure that the flow of logistics distribution in Papua and West Papua is more efficient so that prices for basic needs can be stable, including rice. Before the T-19, rice was usually sent from Surabaya or Manado to Papua. 19 are able to encourage the economy of farmers in Merauke,” he said in his statement, Wednesday (16/6/2021).

Company data shows that KM Logistik Nusantara 2 has carried 174 containers of rice from Merauke during 2021. In the first voyage, namely on January 3, 2021, KM Lognus 2 transported 24 containers of rice.
