The Complexities of Importing into Indonesia

Although not considered a Technologically advanced nation, Indonesia has 112% mobile penetration and the world’s fourth-largest mobile market. It is also a common location for data centers, playing host to big names such as Equinix, Amazon, and Microsoft. Importing into Indonesia can be highly complex. If you are shipping directly into a red channel, several additional compliance requirements and additional inspections need to be completed. This is a lengthy process, with a lot of added documentation. There is also the option of shipping into the country using a green channel. This requires goods first to be cleared in Singapore before moving on to their destination. This approach may be significantly quicker, but there are additional freight costs. Second-hand goods are also restricted into the country and require other compliance documentation.
