 and importers of meat, etc. Cold storage facilities are generally part of an integrated business but there are also ones operating as independent units for rent.

The Greater Jakarta Jakarta or Djakarta (both: jəkär`tə, jäkär`tä), city and special district (1990 pop. 8,227,746), capital and largest city of Indonesia, NW Java, at the mouth of the canalized Ciliwung River, on Jakarta  area has around 40 cold storage companies. Some 28 of them have a total capacity of 75,056 tons.

Demand for cold storage facility could be estimated from the consumption of meat, fruits, vegetables, frozen potatoes, fish, shrimps, etc. In the Greater Jakarta areas. Consumption of the food products in the Greater Jakarta area in 2009 totaled around 441,000 tons/month with 25.8% or 114,000 tons of which needing cold storage. Realization, however, is that only 73,800 tons of them used cold storage facility that year including 9,600 tons of beef, 25,600 tons of fresh fish/frozen shrimps, 9,473 tons of fruits, 5,985 tons of vegetables, 2,364 tons of frozen potatoes and other fresh products. The demand estimate is based on assumption that only 80% of imported meats in the Greater Jakarta area need cold storage facility for 30 days before they are sent to the end. Based on the assumption, 9,600 tons of the total consumption of 12,000 tons of meat in the Greater Jakarta area are put in cold storage for 30 days.

Demand for cold storage service has increased in the past several years to follow the expansion of retail business in the Greater Jakarta area. Most retail chains have outlets located in various areas that they need standard stock at each outlet for which they will need cold storage to keep their stock in good quality.

However, not all of the chain stores have enough cold storage rooms to hold their goods especially food products including frozen food, beverages, ice cream, fruits, meat, fish, etc. With the limited capacity of their cold storage, some of the stores have to rent a space in the cold storage facility of other companies mainly logistic lo·gis·tic   also lo·gis·ti·cal

Types of cold storage

Cold storage facilities are designed to have a certain temperature for the storage of various types of goods to keep them fresh and prevent them from damage.

Refrigerators consist of four type's chilled chill

Chilled room could function as a thawing room for food processing industry used to increase the temperature of meat, chicken meat and fish after being frozen under a temperature of 7 to 10 deg C, before the process of cooking.

Freezer Room has a temperature of between -15[degrees]C ~ -20[degrees]C used for warehouse of fish, meat, sausage sausage, food consisting of finely chopped meat mixed with seasonings and, often, other ingredients, all encased in a thin membrane. Although sausages were made by the ancient Greeks and Romans, they were usually plain and unspiced; in the Middle Ages people began to , milk, cheese, potato and all types of foodstuff and other materials and other materials needed in freezing temperature.

Blast Freezer is used for fast freezing for processed foods and meat, fish and shrimp. The temperature targets are -20[degrees]C ~ -25[degrees]C.

Blast Chiller and blast freezer are used to:

1. Prevent contamination by bacteria.

2. Maintain the taste of foods

3. Prevent reduction of water content

4. Maintaining nutritional content

Meanwhile, by the capacity of refrigerator machine, there are two types of cold storage facilities commercial and industrial cold storage facilities.

Commercial cold storage facilities are generally designed and built for rent or main facility of business activities such as logistics and supply chain management.

Design include configuration of machines and storage system (racking) made flexible to suit the flows of goods. Machines of commercial cold storage are generally smaller in capacity but larger in number that could operated flexibly.

Examples of commercial cold storage facilities are those used for the storage of meat, fish, and vegetables at supermarkets and hypermarkets. The capacity of commercial cold storage in Indonesia Indonesia (ĭn'dənē`zhə), officially Republic of Indonesia, republic (2005 est. pop. 241,974,000), c.735,000 sq mi (1,903,650 sq km), SE Asia, in the Malay Archipelago.  is generally below 500 tons.

Industrial cold storage facilities generally function as part of production facilities. The configuration of machine and facilities are like racking system. The capacity of industrial cold storage facilities in Indonesia is generally larger than 500 tons.

Lately there are companies operating commercial cold storage facilities in large scale fully for rent. In addition, there are industrial cold storage facilities changing function into commercial cold storage facilities with the largest part of their space is rented out such as that of PT. Bonecom (BOSCO This article is about the Irish children's TV character. For the Warner Brothers cartoon character, see Bosko. For other uses, see Bosco (disambiguation).

). In the beginning the entire capacity of cold storage facility of BOSCO was for own use of the company to support its shrimp export business. Later, however, when shrimp business was on the decline the space of its cold storage facility was rented out to other companies.

Products needing cold storage facility

Cold storage facilities are used for the storage of various products like meat, fish, vegetables, fruits and cooked foods, etc.

Those products have different characteristics and need different conditions in temperature and humidity humidity, moisture content of the atmosphere, a primary element of climate. Humidity measurements include absolute humidity, the mass of water vapor per unit volume of natural air; relative humidity (usually meant when the term humidity .

The supply of cold storage in Indonesia

Generally cold storage are used to keep food products such as meat, fish, fruits, vegetables and food basic materials, fresh under freezing temperature or to prevent them from damage.

Many companies, however, do not have own cold storage as it will need large investment. They choose to rent that facility or cooperate with cold storage companies rather than buying one.

Business model of Cold storage companies in Indonesia

Based on business purposes in the Greater Jakarta area there are:

a. Cold Storage for own use (integrated with other business)

b. Cold Storage entirely for rent

Cold storage for own use

Some companies have the cold storage facility for their own use. The facility is integrated with other business of the owning company serving to support operation of the core business.

The main function of cold storage facility is to keep goods in stock for short or longer time. The owning company handles the job of keeping in cold storage or distributing and sending the goods later.

Cold storage having such functions is owned by companies operating in ice cream industry, exporters of fish and other sea food products, importers of meat, importers of fruits, vegetables and other fresh food products.

Sometimes, however, the companies rent part of the space in their cold storage facility to other companies having similar core business or products.

Cold storage for rent

Lately cold storage rental business begins to flourish in the Greater Jakarta area. There are two types of companies operating in cold storage rental business:

- Logistics and distribution companies, and

- Companies specially renting out cold storage

Companies specially renting out cold storage

The need to rent cold storage began when a number of large scale food manufacturing companies have cold storage with limited capacity or have no such facility for their products that have to be kept in cold storage before being processed or distributed. Such companies, therefore, have to rent cold storage.

In the beginning most cold storage rental companies served only certain main customers, but later they offered their service to various other customers. Generally such rental companies have small size cold storage but larger in number.

There are also cold storage companies which have changed their functions. In the beginning they had cold storage for own use such as for shrimp exports, but when the shrimp business declined they offer the service of their cold storage to other users.

The rental fee is set per square meter Noun 1. square meter - a centare is 1/100th of an are

 space per month. The companies that use the rental service are entirely responsible for all activities from the keeping of products in the cold storage to sending then out.

Most products kept in rented cold storage are manufactured food products such as frozen food, fruits, vegetables, etc.

The main users of rented cold storage are producers of manufactured food products, importers of frozen food, importers of meat, importers of fruits, etc.

Logistics and distribution companies renting out cold storage

In the past several years' cold storage business is operated more professionally by logistics or distribution companies.

Logistics service companies build their dry storage facilities and cold storage facilities entirely for rent. Operations of the two facilities become the core business of the companies. A logistics company handles everything from the transport of products from their original place to the cold storage and distribution from the storage facility to the final destination based on the request of the clients.

Indonesia has few logistic companies, which have own cold storage facility, serving also as distribution centre. Large logistic companies which also serve as distribution centre include PT. YCH YCH Yan Chai Hospital , PT. Sukanda Djaya and PT. Wira Logitama Saksama. Logistic company DHL DHL

 also begins to offer cold storage service by building own cold storage.

There are also logistic service companies which operate only in renting out space in their cold storage. The entire activities of storage and distribution of their products are handled by the renter.

Many logistics companies which have cold storage facility were established by their parent companies to serve as distribution companies the products of the parent companies. Distribution companies having large cold storage facility later expanded business to serve distribution of products of other companies. Among such companies are PT. Sukanda Djaya (SD) and PT. Wira Logitama Saksama (Wira Logistics). Cold storage facility owned by PT. Sukanda Djaya was originally built to keep in storage ice cream produced by its parent company PT. Diamond Ice Cream. As the cold storage facility has excess space PT. Sukanda Djaya rents out the space to other users.

Their goods include ice cream, potatoes and frozen chicken meat. Currently PT. Sukanda Djaya is the largest operator of cold storage having a number of cold storage facilities in Indonesia.

Cold storage facilities of Wira Logitama Saksama were established to support the operation of its parent company PT. Wicaksana Overseas International, which is a large distribution and whole sale company with products including foods and beverages. As a logistic company Wira Logitama Saksama serves not only members of its company group but also other customers that need cold storage and logistic services.

The Greater Jakarta area is the largest economic and business center in the country. The growing business in Jakarta requires larger cold storage facilities.

The Greater Jakarta areas could be divided into four regions--Northern, Eastern, Southern and Western regions. Cold storage business is the main supporting business for food processing and fishery industries, retailer network, restaurant chains, importers of meat, etc.

Modern retail business has grown fast in Jakarta and its satellite cities. The retail companies have outlets in various locations in the cities. Therefore, they need cold storage services.

Some of the retail companies have cold storage with limited space not enough to freeze their products of food, fruits, meat, fish, etc. They were forced to rent space in cold storage facilities owned by logistics companies.

The cold storage facilities are generally located in strategic areas having enough infrastructure facilities with good access to toll roads.

Most of the cold storage facilities for frozen food, meat, fish, fruits and vegetables, are located in Northern region of Jakarta including Ancol, Sunter, Muara Baru This article is about the mekosuchine crocodylian. For other uses, see Baru (disambiguation).

Demand for cold storage in Indonesia

Identification of main users

The main users of cold storage service could be put in two groups manufacturing and trading companies that need cold storage with temperature that could be set. The chiller room is set at a temperature of 2-8 degree Celsius Cel·si·us
adj. Abbr. C

, and freezer room with a temperature of -18 to -20 degrees Celsius.

Cold storage is used to keep the quality, shape and taste of fresh food products and processed food products such as meat and seafood.

The first group are manufacturing companies producing fresh food products and basic materials of processed foods. They include food processing companies, fish processing In fishing industry, fish processing or fish products industry refers to processing fish delivered by fisheries, which are the supplier of the fish products industry.  companies and ice cream producers.

The second groups are trading companies selling fresh food and frozen food products. They include large retail companies, restaurants, importers of fruits and importers of meat.

Large retail companies

In the past decade the tentacles of world retail giants have reached the Greater Jakarta area. he retail business dominated by PMA ahs flourished with 152 outlets in the Greater Jakarta area.

Modern retailer include hypermarkets and supermarket/department stores. According to the classification of the trade ministry, a supermarket has a floor space of at least 600 m2 and mini-market or convenience store at least 140 m2, and hypermarket is larger than supermarket.

Among the hypermarkets are Carrefour with 34 outlets in the Greater Jakarta area Giant with 7 outlets, Hypermart 7 outlets and Makro 6 outlets. Those classified as supermarket include Hero with 49 outlets, Superindo 28 outlets, Alfa 20 outlets and Foodmart 7 outlets.

Currently retail companies having own cold storage warehouse for own use are Superindo with cold storage warehouse in Cibitung, having a floor space of 1,200.sq.m and a capacity of 500 tons; Carrefour with cold storage in Pondok pondok or pondokkie

(in southern Africa) a crudely made house or shack [Malay pondók leaf house]
 Ungu, Bekasi and Giant together with Hero in the same company group with cold storage house in Cibitung.

Hypermart and Foodmart both under the Group of Matahari Putra Prima have no cold storage warehouse. Currently Hypermart rents cold storage warehouse of PT. YCH in Cibitung. The warehouse with a floor space of 8,000 sq.m and a capacity of 2,000 tons is wholly rented by Hypermart. The entire activities of storage and distribution of products to Hypermart & Foodmart outlets in Java are handled by PT. Matahari Putra Prima. PT. YCH provides only the facility renting out the space in its cold storage and take care of its maintenance.

Makro also has no large cold storage. Makro has only 2 units of chilling container in each of its outlets. Makro has relied on suppliers for fresh and frozen food products. Suppliers are responsible for the jobs of procurement The fancy word for "purchasing." The procurement department within an organization manages all the major purchases.  and distribution.

Large Restaurant Operators

Restaurant business has expanded fast in the country with growing number of urban people choosing to take instant foods mainly for efficiency. Currently the Greater Jakarta area has 7 large restaurant companies with 1.008 outlets. None of the restaurant companies has large cold storage facility to keep food products like beef, burger, chicken meat, sausage, and potato. They generally rent cold storage space of other companies

Kentucky Fried Chicken is the largest instant food restaurant with outlets of 99 units in the Greater Jakarta area, followed by McDonald serving hamburger and fried chicken with outlet in the Greater Jakarta area.

Type of products/services required by different market segment

Different market segments need different cold storage facilities or services.

Retailers, restaurants, ice cream producers and food processing companies need cold storage having chiller room and freezer room.

Fishery and shrimp companies, apart from chiller room and freezer room, also need ABF (Air Blast Freezer) to freeze fish/shrimp under a temperature of -40 degrees. The freezing process normally takes 10 hours.

Importers of fruits need only chiller room as they needs only to keep the their fruits fresh and in good quality.

All customers or the market segments need services of transporting products from factories/ports/suppliers to be stored in warehouses and to be distributed later to outlets/agents, etc.

Consumer's preferences

A customer has criteria of cold storage to be rented. Among the factors they take into consideration before renting cold storage include tariff, handling rate, location, services, hygiene hygiene, science of preserving and promoting the health of both the individual and the community. It has many aspects: personal hygiene (proper living habits, cleanliness of body and clothing, healthful diet, a balanced regimen of rest and exercise); domestic hygiene  and security.

The rent rates are set on pallets per month. PT. Wira Logistik sets the tariff at Rp 300,000 per pallet per month. The tariff set by PT. AGB Tuna is Rp 27 million per month under storage system and Rp18 million per month under longer term contract.

Most cold storage companies have their own forklifts at least two unit each, but there are some handle the job manually

Distance is also an important factor, but distance is less important if the place has ease access such as with the availability of toll road. Cibitung, which has a number of cold storage companies including PT. Wira Logitama Saksama, and PT. YCH, PT. Sukanda Jaya is located far from Jakarta but the distance is less a problem as it has ease access to the Jakarta-Cikampek toll road.

Pizza Hut restaurants has rented cold storage of PT. Sukanda Djaya for 25 years to handle the distribution of its products to all outlets of Pizza Hut in Java.

Pizza Hut also has established cooperation with PT. Diamond Cold Storage (the parent company of PT. Sukanda Djaya). PT. Diamond Cold Storage as a producer ice cream has become the supplier of ice cream and milk for all outlets of Pizza Hut.

Procurement method and relation between customers and suppliers

Some cold storage operators such as PT. AGB Tuna and PT. Linggagoran Cold Storage, offer only warehouse with the customer handling all the activities of storage, loading and unloading and distribution

Most of such cold storage companies originally operated in the same line of business with their customers that the customers generally know the cold storage companies. Promotion, therefore, is not very necessary to attract customers.

There are also some owners of cold storage rent out their cold storage only to a single customers such as PT. YCH with customer PT. Matahari Putra Prima (MPP (Massively Parallel Processing or Massively Parallel Processor) A multiprocessing architecture that uses up to thousands of processors. Some might contend that a computer system with 64 or more CPUs is a massively parallel processor. ).

The cold storage of PT. YCH is entirely rented by PT. Matahari Putra Prima (MPP) since 2000 to keep the products of the retail company before being distributed to its Hypermart (hyper A Greek work meaning "above" or "more than." It is used as a prefix to technical concepts and products to convey a more advanced or more automatic capability.  market), Foodmart (supermarket) and Bostons (drugstore).

MPP rents 5 units of cold storage facilities of PT. YCH including 3 units of chilled room and 2 units frozen room. MPP uses the facilities for frozen food products, beverages, chocolate and fruits before being distributed to 7 outlets of its Hypermart and 7 outlets of Foodmart in the Greater Jakarta area.

MPP rents the facilities for 5 years and extension is also for 5 years. The rent is paid every year. The tariff is Rp 2 billion per month or Rp 250,000/m2. Every year the rate is raised by 2%. The electricity bill is on the MPP. PT. YCH gives only the services and handles the maintenance of the facility. All handling activities of procurement. transport and distribution are handled by MPP

Logistics companies offer not only cold storage space, but also storage of the products, loading and unloading as well as distribution of products. PT. West Side Agritama, for example, handles all of the jobs of storage and distribution of goods to 86 outlets of Mc. Donald restaurants in the Greater Jakarta area

The system of long term contract of 5 years such as between PT. YCH and PT. Matahari Putra Prima (MPP) is rare. Most contract system is annually or for less than a year such as between Wira Logistics and its customers.

There are also monthly storage system with monthly payment. A customer using the cold storage for less than 30 days will pay full monthly fee. This system is widely used by customers having trade goods sold fast such as fresh fish that have to be disposed dis·pose

 of in 1-2 days. PT. AGB Tuna for example, uses the system for PT. Yanagi and other customer.

Market size

Demand for cold storage facilities could be estimated based on the consumption of products (meat, fruits, vegetables, frozen potatoes, fish, shrimp, etc.) in the Greater Jakarta area and on the average frequency of storage of the products.

Consumption of the products (meat, fruits, vegetables, frozen potatoes, fish, shrimp, etc) in the Greater Jakarta area is estimated to average 441,000 tons/month, and 114,000 tons of the products would need cold storage facility per month. S/month. Realization, however, is estimated to reach only 73,800 tons/month in 2009 including beef 9,600 tons, fresh fish/frozen shrimp 25,600 tons, fruits 9,473 tons, vegetables 5,985 tons and frozen potatoes 2,364 tons.

The demand for cold storage service is based on assumption of average storage as shown in the following table. It is assumed that 80% of imported meat in Jakarta needs cold storage for 30 days on the average before the meat reaches the end consumers. Based on that assumption, 9,600 tons of the total consumption of 12,000 tons of meat in the Greater Jakarta are put in cold storage for a month. Cold storage capacity needed for meat in the Greater Jakarta area, therefore, is 9,600 tons.

The Greater Jakarta area has around 26 companies operating cold storage facilities in 2009 with a total capacity of 75,056 tons. Around 75% of the capacity is estimated to be rented out and 25% for own use.

Based on that assumption, the capacity is for rent is 56,292 tons. Base on the field surveys, 80% of the space of cold storage facilities for rent has been rented out under long term lease.

Assuming that the monthly rent is US$ 30 per sq.m per month, the total market value of cold storage service in the Greater Jakarta area is around US$20.53 million a year. The value does not include handling cost and supporting service cost, which are almost the same as the rent. The total market value therefore is around US$40 million a year.

Market projection (demand projections and prospects of new cold storage facilities).

Demand for cold storage service in the Greater Jakarta area is high as indicated by the act that almost all cold storage warehouses are always fully used for meat, fish, fruits, vegetables and ice cream. The strong demand has prompted capacity expansion by a number of operators such as PT. YCH Indonesia. yCh plans to expand the space of its cold storage warehouse from 8,000 sq.m with a capacity of 2,000 tons to 20,000 sq.m next year.

PT. Japfa Santory plans to build new cold storage facility with a capacity of 400 tons in 2009 and PT. Wirontonso plans to build 2 new units of cold storage with a total capacity of 4,000 tons next year.

Demand for Cold storage service is predicted to increase in the coming years especially from retail companies and restaurants, which grow fast in the big cities in the country.

Imports of food products like meat and fish and fruits, which need cold storage service are expected to increase to follow the growing population. Based on the past trend, demand for cold storage service will increase 10%-20% annually in the Greater Jakarta area bringing the capacity requirement to around 96,000 tons in 2010 or an additional capacity of 21,000 tons from the present capacity of 75,000 tons. See the following table.


Cold storage business in Jakarta has continued to flourish to follow the rapid expansion of retail business including restaurant chains and food and beverage F&B is a common abbreviation in the United States and Commonwealth countries, including Hong Kong. F&B is typically the widely accepted abbreviation for "Food and Beverage," which is the sector/industry that specializes in the conceptualization, the making of, and delivery of foods.  manufacturing industry that will need cold storage service. Among the big retail companies with big chain are Carrefour, Giant, Hypermart and Lotte Mart. Restaurants having big chains are Kentucky Fried Chicken, Mc Donald, Pizza Hut, Hoka-Hoka Bento A data structure used to store embedded documents in an OpenDoc compound document. Bento, which stands for lunch box in Japanese, provides a "container" to hold the data and a format for defining its contents. , etc. And big ice cream producers are Diamond Cold Storage, Unilever, etc. The food products need to be kept under a low temperature as low as 2 degrees below zero

In Jakarta and its satellite cities there are around 40 cold storage companies and 28 of them have a total capacity of 75,056 tons in 2009. The largest cold storage companies are is PT. Wira Logitama Saksama, PT. Sukanda Djaya and YCH. The capacity is not enough compared to requirement of 114,000 tons/month.

The location of cold storage facility is important to guarantee smooth distribution of goods. Apart from renting out the service the companies also serve to distribute goods on request from their customers. The cold storage facilities are generally located in areas with adequate infrastructure and transport facility close to toll roads. In Jakarta cold storage companies mainly offering storage of food products including frozen food, meat, fish, fruits and vegetables are located mainly in North Jakarta areas like Ancol, Sunter, Muara Baru, Muara Karang and Pademangan. The locations are strategic as they are close to the Tanjung Priok port the largest gate for export and import products. The locations are also linked with toll roads including Cawang--Tanjung Priok and Tanjung Priok--Pluit, to guarantee smooth distribution.

In West Jakarta, the main location of cold storage companies is Muara Angke, which is close to fish auction center, fresh fish market, and fishermen's kampongs. The location of Muara Angke is also strategic as it has good access to the Pluit toll road and the toll road leading to the Soekarno Hatta airport.

Cold storage warehouses as part of logistics companies are located mainly in East Jakarta East Jakarta (Indonesian: Jakarta Timur) is a city of Jakarta, Indonesia. It has an area of 187.73 km².

East Jakarta is bounded by North Jakarta to the north, Bekasi to the east, Depok to the south, and South Jakarta and Central Jakarta to the west.
 such especially in the Cibitung industrial estate. In that area there are three logistic companies the largest in Indonesia including PT. Wira Logitama Saksama, PT. Sukanda Jaya and PT. YCH. In addition in that area there is cold storage warehouses of Superindo retain chain. The Cibitung industrial zone has an easy access to one of the Jakarta-Cikampek toll road.

With limited capacity of cold storage owned by retail chains and restaurant chains the opportunity is good for the expansion of cold storage facility for rent.

The retain business chains including restaurant chains are expected to continue to grow in the country with the expanding trend of the economy. Demand for cold storage service, therefore, is forecast to grow still in the future. In next five years, demand for cold storage in the Greater Jakarta area is expected to grow to reach a total capacity of 152 tons in 2012 up from 132 tons in 2011. The capacity is forecast to grow further to 212 tons in 2015.
