Handover Reduction Project: Shorten the customer felt timeliness

Increase productivity which gives direct impact to the quality of service is the key objective of Handover Reduction project Indonesia was nominated as pilot country to roll the project. The project that has been rolled out since May 3rd is now in define and implement possible solution stage. Process mapping and rootcause analysis for Indonesia, were conducted on 16 27 May 2011 with Target and William Sonoma as nominated client. During this period, Raul C. Asa Jr. and Arnold Mendoza Candelaria as GSC representatives, representative from Target Team, WilliamsSonoma and Catherine Wongsono (PEX Manager), identified the wastes in the processes, map generic requirements, identify the problem areas and then define a new ‘generic’ process. This new flow will be then tested and the results will be compared against the productivity and quality statistics gathered before the implementation. Catherine said

that Indonesia SCM volume is growing after the crisis, and need to improve more on performance aligning with the growth. “We would like to focus on growing our business and focus on the improving our quality and maximize our sidekick, GSC. We understand that there's always an area to improve in current origin-GSC process, there are some handover point identified in the current process and those handover has added the total turn time felt by the customer which is unnecessary, we would like to be the first to reap the benefit.” she added. Mapping and identify problem areas needs to be thorough and detail. And similar to other process improvement projects, challenges emerged during the process. It took some time for the team member in SCM to fully open on the idea of identifying areas of improvement. “Some have been so comfortable on their daily task; they did not see any as an improvement possibility. Raul and Arnold have been very open and patient to reveal these areas,

and get the mutual agreement from both origin and GSC” said Catherine. Much benefit can be earned from this project. “It help us identify unnecessary steps to get more efficiency in daily operational and can be used for best practice sharing for us” Lina, representative from Target team, said. By expected result to deliver a new origin process with reduced handovers between Damco customer teams and GSC, hopes will increase productivity as well as quality of service and shorten the customer felt timeliness. ”it’s very eyes opening on the process improvement. We have better understanding on both process which open possibility to reduce our workload.” Joklan , Williams-Sonoma team manager added. (Catherine W)

Lean: Process Improvement Training and Roll-Out! Building on your 5S and VMS awareness, we will now step up a gear and roll-out the Process Improvement training for each team, one team per week (including branches!), during the next 2-3 months.


The roll-out will take the teams through the 10-Step cycle (Nike and Cakung CFS have already gone through half of it), spread to 1-2 hours sessions per day (not the whole day!) during the roll-out week, facilitated by Alister. This will be an excellent opportunity to learn while doing actual process improvement exercises. The roll-out week for your team will be communicated in the very near future upon agreement with your manager. (Alister)

Strike against Jakarta Road Restriction Road restriction in Jakarta, a new administrative policy restricting truck access to the inner city toll road has provoked various reactions. From public point of view, this new policy reduces traffic in morning and evening rush hour. They are very appreciate and supporting this new regulation. However, from transporter side, this regulation increasing their business cost. Restriction means they have to take alternative way which much longer and farther. This only will impact on their operation daily cost. ORGANDA (National Road Transport Operators Association) raised their concern to government to postpone the regulation until the supporting infrastructure built and ready. But after having several unnoticed complaining by government, ORGANDA plan to have strike on May 20th. “Stop Operation” strike will surely paralyze export and import activity, including Damco as we also member of ORGANDA. An intense meeting and discussion was held between both parties, which finally reached agreement. The agreement was Government will postpone and revaluate the policy and Organda will cancel the strike plan. Turn out there was another issue emerged from this agreement. Jakarta Governor Fauzi Bowo refused to cancel, but instead he insists to implement the policy. "I don't know what the transportation minister is thinking. He hasn't talked to me yet, but we will definitely implement what has been agreed on by the

regional administration," said Fauzi to JakartaPost. This is vital matter which gives direct impact to Damco business. Without any transportation, we surely unable to keep our business run. In respond to this situation, Damco chose to wait and see. Organda planned another strike on May 27 as their respond to governor’s act. The strike commenced at 6 am. Organda deployed satgas (internal security) to restrict truck operate. Even thou it was only one day strike, but it has disrupted our business activity. Latest update that we have about this issue is that Organda and government still haven’t reached final agreement. Road restriction is still being implemented and Organda threat to increase their rate to compensate the operational cost.

Our nest is getting roomy! Yup! Previously, we announced a lot of new stuff going on in Damco Indonesia – one of which is our literal expansion on our head office's 26th floor. Starting this month, Damco will extend the area on the 26th floor encompassing third quarter floor of office space. After getting through the global crisis in 2009 with flying colors, Damco's business and shipment volume have been increasing and hence, more space is needed to

accommodate a smoother workflow. We’ve now got plenty of space for our paper airplane challenges, puppy obstacle courses and probably enough room to get a full on game of indoor futsal!

BERNARD HUTAGALUNG - 15 YEARS LONG SERVICE AWARD There’s a saying in Indonesian …“ Air tenang menghanyutkan”. In English, we also have similar expression …. “Still water runs deep”. That’s my impression about Bernard. He came across as a quiet & calm person. Many of his subordinates said that Bernard is as cool as a cucumber (makes me wonder how he will behave if there’s a fire…), and at first glance, judging by his outward behavior, many people thought that he is Javanese … at least until they know Bernard’s last name. Something which not many people know about Bernard, was the fact that he already completed post graduate degree in Economic Management, University of Indonesia. His best memory and proudest achievement, was his earliest years as junior staff, where he was entrusted by the management to deal with plastic raw material of Mitsubishi Kasei. The first warehousing business handled by this company. Bernard’s wish for the future is to be better at all things, as a person, as a leader, as a husband, and as a friend. (Inta)

Some of his peers & colleagues said: “ …. Ben, as far as I know is a good men and has high integrity to the company. His patient and experiences on some positions make him as the one who has a complete knowledge in Damco …” (David B. Pandjaitan) “ … I’ve never seen him angry, and to think that I’ve known him for more than 10 years … wow ….!!! “ (Lydia Simamora) “ .. Bang Ben is very calm, and very good anchor when you are in panic mode..” (Titi Sari) “ Bang Ben = understanding and listening” (Hana Luptiana) “ …Low profile, very patient, doesn’t seems like Bataknese to my opinion…” (Ninuk Ambarwati) “One of the most experienced colleague I have been working with in Damco, he is also down to earth despite having a lot of experience. It is not difficult to work along side of him…” (Asido Tindaon)

Wisnuaji’s House burned On Saturday 28th may 2011, the whole family including wisnuaji (Nike Team) was on the way to bogor to visit relative. The only person who stayed in the house was their maid. Not so long after the family left, the house was being fogged for dengue mosquito. After it's done and the fog is all clear, the maid toast a bread and left it for sweeping the front yard. Apparently after a while she forgot to check the toast, and got surprised by a blast from the kitchen. When she ran to the kitchen, the windows already broken and the flames was already reached to the ceiling, She screamed for help to the neighbor. The flames got to the car that parked in the garage next to the kitchen and explode it. It was so hard to call the fire company and while waiting for them to arrive, the neighbors passed the water hand to hand try to extinguish the fire, but it didn't work out well. And comes another explosion from 3 empty gas cylinders in the kitchen. 30 minutes after, the fire truck arrived and took out the fire. However 80% of the house was already burned. Since the house was totally damaged by the fire and not in proper condition to live in, now wisnuaji and his family is still staying at one of their family which located quite near. (Diah Wulandari)
