Transportation and Logistics: The Duo for Economic Growth

The Economy Continues to Grow by Collaborating Transportation and Logistics Sectors

Transportation and logistics sectors play an important role in a country’s economy. They are like arteries and blood in the human body. In fact, the growth of transportation and logistics or warehousing has a major impact on a country’s economic growth country. This is true for Indonesia.

Based on the data from Statistics Indonesia (BPS), in the Q1 of 2022, transportation and warehousing saw a 15.79% growth year-on-year (YoY), and Indonesia registered an economic growth of 5.01%.

Both sectors grew even higher in Q2, i.e., 21.27% YoY. In addition, the national economic growth reached 5.44% YoY. 

Although Indonesia lags behind developed countries, including Asia, we should be proud of its endless efforts to improve and manage transportation infrastructure.

Over the last decade, transportation infrastructure has been built and developed on a large scale to meet Indonesians’ growing needs.

Indonesia is still undergoing its effort to integrate effective and efficient transportation and improve transportation connectivity among regions.

Considering the country’s limited budget and vast area, priority is given to transportation connectivity to develop local economic potentials and accelerate logistics.
