Transportation is essentially a derived demand which has a continuous character and knows no boundaries. In this regard, transportation is basically the lifeblood of the nation and state, where at the initial stage, the role of transportation is as a “the promoting sector”, that is, transportation infrastructure and facilities are provided before the development of other sectors, while at the next stage the role of transportation concerns “the servicing sector”. The types and means of transportation vary according to requirements. There are 3 types of transportation in the world, namely land transportation, water transportation, and air transportation. Among the types of transportation, sea transportation provides a very large contribution to the national and regional economy as mandated in Act No. 17 of 2008. It is therefore a key strategic point for national development. It should also be noted that the contribution of sea transportation is becoming increasingly important because the costs incurred are lower than that the cost of land and air transportation. In addition, sea transportation has other advantages, namely ships can pass through fields that cannot be reached by two-wheeled vehicles or air ships. The main target of maritime highway development according to the Ministry of National Development Planning is the realization of Indonesia as an archipelagic country that is independent, advanced, strong, and based on national interests.
