About Salam Pacific Indonesia Lines
The roots of Salam Pacific Indonesia Lines dates back to 1970 with the establishment of PT SAMUDERA PACIFIC. The company next acquired PT SALAM SEJAHTERA in 1984 and relocated its headquarters to Surabaya, forming PT SALAM PACIFIC INDONESIA LINES (SPIL). Along with the growing need for a broader coverage area and the demand for more reliable inter-island shipments, SPIL expanded its services in 1996 beyond handling break-bulk cargo, to providing more efficient means of transport that utilizes unitized containers. SPIL is regarded as a shipping pioneer in East Indonesia, connecting islands with 32 offices that are strategically located across the Indonesian archipelago. Supported by a team of competent professionals, SPIL continues to improve its network to provide high-quality services. For more information, visit: http://www.spil.co.id/spilcoid_s1l/about/index
