The Port of Kuala Tanjung will provide a logistical diversification opportunity in which the need for freight services for both export, import, and inter-island distribution through port will continue to increase. Seeing the magnitude of this potential, it is hoped that Kuala Tanjung Port can become an alternative International Hub Port in Western Indonesia that can provide added value for economic growth significantly. As a potential port to become an international Hub Port, Kuala Tanjung must have a large cargo demand, coming from its own hinterland as well as shifting from other nearby ports. The largest potential hinterland of Kuala Tanjung Port is in the form of oil palm and rubber plantations with derivative goods. Kuala Tanjung Port is predicted to accommodate 65% of total goods production in North Sumatra, both containerized and bulk liquid.
