Dwell times

Despite new mechanisms introduced to allow businesses to process permits for export and import activities under one roof, dwell times at the country’s ports remains stubbornly high – weighed down by corruption, red tape and overlapping regulations.

Dwell times in Indonesia – which begin from the moment a vessel moors at a port to the moment its cargo is unloaded and leaves the port, or from when the cargo arrives at the port until it is loaded and the ship departs – are one of the region’s highest averaging at around 3 days or more compared with Singapore with a turn-around of only 1.5 days.
