Pelindo III president director Djarwo Surjanto said that two units of Ship to Shore Crane (STS), five units of Automated Stacking Crane (ASC), and one unit of Automotive Terminal Tractor (ATT) were scheduled to arrive between the end of April and early May.

"The equipment is on the way from countries such as China, Spain, Finland, France and Romania," Djarwo said in a press release, adding that the trial operations would be carried out in mid-May.
