As an archipelagic state, Indonesia needs a means of transportation to connect one island to another. Therefore, the inter-island shipping plays an important role to load passengers and distribute cargoes from islands to islands as the other means of transportation still limited. However, it seemed that it grew gradually and was unable to fulfill the needs.Stretch of private boats only take as solid lines. Pioneership route that sailed which did not pass the private shipping lines were inadequate in number. Trajectory path was too long to stop to the many ports caused the travel time into a long stretch (of the tripe on average 15 days). The results also indicated that a pioneering trajectory path was still much to coincide and not connected with other cruise lines, especially with governmentowned shipping lines (PELNI) subsidized. It caused by some factors ranging from the lack of government support to internal disadvantages. The free competitive policies, following the free trade agreements, made it difficult to grow. To show maritime integrity and souvereignty, such a function was needed to ncourage, support and progress.
