The following is an example of the collaboration of the Department of Marine Transportation Engineering, both with Companies and Institutions from within and outside the country to solve problems in the field of Marine Transportation, covering the fields of Shipping, Ports and Maritime Logistics:
Research Field: Shipping
PT. PLN (Persero) as a state-owned enterprise responsible for national electricity supply is required to be able to maintain the guaranteed availability of electricity supply along with the increasing national electricity demand. The main problem in efforts to maintain the availability of national electricity supply is to maintain the continuity of the supply of primary energy. One of the efforts is to increase power plants by using primary energy which is still quite a lot of reserves and relatively low prices, namely coal. Because the need for coal as primary energy for the PLTU is absolute and transportation services are needed to transport coal from the mine site to the location of the PLTU, the component of freight costs is one of the factors that must be considered for PT. PLN (Persero) in the process of procuring coal.
The purpose of this study is to obtain standardization (formulation) on how to calculate and determine the costs in the coal freight cost component (based on the prevailing theory) as an effort to improve the efficiency of coal transportation. The output of this study includes determining the freight quantity for coal transportation using 3 (three) alternative transportation means namely Barge, Ship (Vessel) and SPB (Self-Propelled Barge).
The results of the freight rate calculation show that the larger the size (capacity) of the conveyance produces a lower unit cost, but not necessarily the transport tool is the most efficient to use, this is due to several factors that need to be considered include: port, b) limitation of wave conditions and c) limit on the amount of cargo to be transported.

The collaboration of PT. Pertamina (Persero) Refinery Unit II Dumai with a Partner from China who intends to reactivate the management of Calcined Petroleum Coke (CPC) through a Horizontal Rotary Kiln facility with a capacity of 300,000 tons which has stopped operating since 1994 due to damage. To be able to produce CPC, raw material for GPC (High Sulfur Contents) is required to be imported from other places (Import). The GPC import will use No. Jetty. 4 from before only for the loading facilities of the products to be exported, it became a product loading facility for exporting and unloading imported products for Coke blending raw materials. Therefore, PT. Pertamina (Persero) Refinery Unit II Dumai in collaboration with ITS (Department of Sea Transportation Engineering to conduct a study of the impact of changes in Jetty pier operation No. 4 both from the aspect of its cargo handling infrastructure or from the aspect of Berth Occupancy Ratio (BOR) pier with changes in designation on the No. 4 Jetty.
The scope of analysis of the study conducted included:
The results of the simulation model show that the BOR value due to changes in operational patterns is still below the maximum BOR limit (<80%) so that Pier Pier is not needed. While the sensitivity analysis shows the BOR value exceeds the maximum limit (> 80%) when GPC-RU II Production is 420,000 TPA, and all ships arriving 10,000 DWT are accompanied by a decrease in B / M speed of -40%.

Research Field: Maritime Logistics
The Indonesian Ministry of Trade with the support of the World Bank seeks to design new policies to increase the participation of national companies to improve the Indonesian economy. Policy options for the use of CIF (Cost, Insurance and Freight) on export activities and FOB (Free on Board) on import activities are deemed to be able to realize this expectation with the hypothesis that the policy can increase the role of shipping companies, freight forwarders and national insurance. To find out the opportunities for implementing these policy options, the World Bank has appointed ITS (Department of Sea Transportation) to conduct an evaluation study of changes in the Term of Delivery (ToD) exports from FOB to CIF with a case study on 4 (four) export commodities, namely palm oil (CPO) , coal, rubber and shrimp. The reason why the commodity was chosen was because it represented 66% of the total volume of Indonesian exports in 2015. The main problems in this study were:
Based on the results of the analysis, of the 4 main export commodities, CPO and coal have the opportunity to be transported by Indonesian-flagged vessels, because of the high market share (high bargaining position for Indonesian exporters). If this is implemented, there will be a potential reduction in the deficit in transportation services by 37.15%. Changes in terms for export commodities from FOB to CIF do not mean that you have to use Indonesian-flagged vessels. Exporters can still use foreign vessels, but this cannot reduce the deficit for export goods transportation services in Indonesia.
