The idea that he is a shareholder is SHARC application, the concept of sharing capacity to reduce transportation costs. According to him, with Indonesia’s geographical conditions as well as the logistics and transport conditions of its people today is still inefficient. For example, when boarding, most passengers do not maximize luggage capacity because they are not needed, so there is an empty / unused baggage capacity.

Though the baggage vacancy, can be used as a source of income by leasing the capacity to those who need it.
