The Prediction of Logistics Sector Growth in Political Climate

Logistics Sector Predicted to Experience Significant Growth

The public often perceives General Elections (Pemilu) as a counterproductive activity to the economic sector. Understandably, this agenda, known as a “party of democracy,” often takes place with high political tension.

However, this is not always the case. Many people actually see that the political climate will be a positive catalyst for the logistics and supply chain. 

Head of the Logistics and Supply Chain Agency of the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin), Akbar Djohan in a Focus Group Discussion “Business World's Expectations for the Future Government” in Jakarta, not long ago, said that the movement of logistics goods during political climate actually saw a significant increase.

“From the promotion, raw materials, labor, to the allocation of funds is significant. We see it as an opportunity,” said Akbar.

He stated that the distribution of election supplies requires logistics services that are effective and punctual in delivery. The process also demands stable pricing that corresponds to the services provided.

“This is what logistics business providers are waiting for. They can increase revenue and add value for their companies,” he continued.

The potential for business profit in a political climate has been predicted by The Asian Development Bank (ADB) in its Asian Development Outlook (ADB) some time ago. Despite political events potentially causing stagnation in economic growth, the organization highlights significant opportunities.

Senior Country Director of ADB, Henry Ma, said that one of these potentials arises from the consumer goods sector, both domestic and household, as well as from the industrial sector.

This aligns with the increasing demand for industrial products such as foods and beverages, clothing, etc.

It’s because the logistics needed for the elections are not only for the presidential and vice-presidential elections, but also a series of elections for members of The House of Representatives (DPR), Regional Legislative Council (DPRD), District/Municipal Legislative Council, Regional Representative Council (DPD), to Regional Heads.

Remember to Choose the Best Logistics Services

However, not all national logistics businesses can seize these opportunities due to potential limitations in their networks and resource capabilities.

On the other hand, logistics service consumers require speed, punctuality, stable prices and costs, as well as the ability to mitigate against potential risks.

Therefore, it’s crucial to choose a professional, experienced, reputable, and credible logistics provider. This ensures that the distribution process of election logistic needs can be more effective and efficient.
