JAKARTA, KOMPAS — Indonesia's logistics costs decline in gross domestic product which is not as fast as other countries is thought to be due to ineffective logistics delivery. Delivery of goods still depends on container ships. In fact, roll-on, roll-off or roro ships can be used to send goods with a cheaper and more effective investment.

Currently, Indonesia's logistics costs still reach 20 percent, higher compared to neighboring countries. Meanwhile, some countries in Asia have shown a significant decrease in logistics costs as a percentage of gross domestic product (GDP) over the past two decades.
