Since Portek’s first foray into Port Operations in 1999, Portek International has expanded the portfolio over the years. In 2018, Portek had breached the One Million TEU mark, recording 1,033,995 TEU, or 54% higher than the volume it posted in 2017.

2018 was a year of robust growth for Portek’s terminals, especially in Bejaia Mediterrean Terminal (“BMT”), Riga Universal Terminal (“RUT”) and T009 Terminal. In addition, in 2018, PT. Dwipahasta Utamaduta (“DHU”), Portek’s latest acquisition in December 2017, was able to contribute immediately handling more than 360 thousand TEUs in the first full year of operation.

“Portek’s performance in 2018 is a good testament to our vision and values of being the preferred partner to ports throughout the world for capacity and productivity enhancement. We thank our customers, partners and local communities for this excellent accomplishment and we look forward to working even harder together with all stakeholders to bring Portek and our ports to greater heights.”, commented Portek Chief Marketing Officer (“CMO”) Mr Liew Kok Leong.

Indo Log & PT Serbaguna Terminal Achieve Triple Certifications

 

Indo Log & PT Serbaguna Terminal Achieve Triple Certifications

15th August 2018

 

Portek subsidiaries PT Indo Log (“PTIL”) and PT Serbaguna Terminal (“PTST”) are pleased to announce that they have achieved certifications in ISO 9001:2015, OHSAS 18001:2007 and ISO 14001:2015. The certificates were presented to them by a representative from Accredited Certification Management (ACM), Indonesia on 2nd August 2018.

PTIL and PTST were independently assessed and were compliant with the requirements of the 3 international standards for the following scope of activities:
PTIL – Service and maintenance of port equipment
PTST – Operational and maintenance loading & discharging container services

ISO 9001:2015 specifies requirements for a Quality Management System where an organisation needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products that meets customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, and aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for continual improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.

Occupational Health & Safety OHSAS 18001:2007 is a framework to identify, control and decrease the risks associated with health and safety within the workplace. Implementing the standard sends a clear message to PTIL and PTST stakeholders that they view employees’ health and safety as a priority within the organisations. It is important to ensure that a rigorous health and safety policy is in place to protect employees against possible occupational risks and reduces the likelihood of accidents in the workplace. By planning ahead, PTIL and PTST can also identify health and safety risks and conform to health and safety legislations.

Environmental ISO 14001:2015 is a systematic framework to manage the immediate and long term environmental impacts of an organisation’s products, services and processes. By completing ISO 14001 certification, PTIL and PTST can assure stakeholders that their environmental management system meets international industry specific environmental standards.

Mr G Somu, President Director of PTST commented: “We are proud of this new achievement. We are committed to providing utmost satisfaction to our customers and meet the national and international standard requirements for Quality, Occupational Health & Safety and Environmental Management Systems.”

Mr Yong Teck Yee, President Director of PTIL added: “It took us 3 years to set up and streamline the integrated management system and another 6 months for the audit certification. It was not easy and we have achieved this through the continuous efforts and hard work from our team. We will work on maintaining and improving the system.”
