At the end of 1970, Sumatra Pass were up and ready, and with that, opened an access road from Java island to Sumatra (via ferry Merak - Bakhauni). Products and goods were transferred through the sea lane before. With the availability a landline, we believe some of those products will not be only transferred through the sea lane like they were used to, so we first take up this opportunity and founded a land expedition company named CV. BANCA EXPRESS exclusively to Padang region.

Thanks to perseverance and the full support of the staffs and employees, we've managed to progress, step by step, therefore we expanded our reach to all the major cities in Sumatra, including : Banda Aceh, Medan, Dumai, Pekanbaru, Bukittinggi, Bengkulu, Palembang, Lampung, and several other big cities in it's vicinity. With the increasing demands of expedition route to Sumatra, we feel the need to step up our administration management and services to our costumer, so we can have an edge against our competitors, and then at the year 1993 we established our new commitment, named PT. BANCA SUMATA EXPRESS.

In the year 2002, we developed Custom Clearance service and Sea Freight from Jakarta to several large cities in Indonesia, such as Riau, Sumatra, Kalimantan, Sulawesi, and Papua. We also work together with PT. Pelayaran Indonesia (PT. PELNI) to accommodate fast and save goods distribution. That very same year, we also started a Trucking Division to accommodate mining regions in Sumatra and also serve as city transport in Jabodetabek area, with a wide range transportation selection including fuso, wing box, colt diesel, trailer, and dump trucks for mining in West Sumatra.

Next, in 2005, we again started a new division of Air Freight from Jakarta to major cities in Indonesia, and managed cooperation with several airlines operating nationally.


To be a company with standards that acknowledged Internationally in the field of distribution service, able to accommodate the needs in all level of society, so that we can be a well-respected host in our own country.
