Supllier, Maintenance equipment Marine & Diving
Explain your idea in details:
This business is a very profitable business. If a business is developed properly, it will benefit greatly. Example. The ships in Pangkalbalam Port, Pangkalpinang City, certainly need a lot of spare parts such as navigation equipment, safety equipment and ship engine equipment. The available boat equipment shop is not complete. To complement these needs, goods are sent to other areas such as Jakarta, Semarang or other big cities and orders for goods can be made abroad. This is of course very inconvenient, the ship must continue to operate, it takes a long time to wait for the required equipment to arrive. I have an idea to meet this need by creating my own company to supply goods for ships in Bangka Belitung. As with diving, tourism in Bangka Belitung Province is very good, even famous to foreign countries such as Tanjung Kelayang beach on Belitung Island, Putri Island which is very beautiful for snorkeling and many other beach tourism. Shops that provide equipment for diving are very minimal, it can even be said not to exist. Most of the tourism business actors place their orders outside the Bangka Belitung area and abroad. This is what makes me want to build this business, to be the first and only the largest company in the future.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
This business is a long-term and sustainable business. This business will grow the economy of the people of Bangka Belitung. The community will be helped, especially with regard to the availability of jobs. I really believe that with this business that I will run, over time there will be other creative business actors from the community.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
This business is simple, I only need relations and legality costs to set up a company, costs for office rent, buying office equipment, costs for recruiting labor and costs for supplying goods later. The working system is very easy, I make offers to shipping agencies, port agencies and to tourism business actors. To minimize the accumulated goods in the warehouse, a catalog system will be applied. Catalogs containing types of goods, specifications of goods and prices of goods. When the prospective buyer agrees to buy, I will place an order request from a company that supplies goods such as PT. Marina Global Internusa or PT. Anugrah Sukses Marine located in Jakarta, Indonesia. This business has a minimal risk of loss, this is because the goods we trade are goods that have already agreed to be purchased by the buyer. In addition, this business also provides maintenance services for ship equipment such as radar, GPS and other navigation equipment and maintenance services for diving equipment such as rubber boats, diving equipment, etc. so this business will be very profitable.
I am 31 years old with education background is bachelor. I have worked in national companies such as banking, mining and government agencies. I have the motivation to advance my hometown, namely the Bangka Belitung Islands Province. many investors in Bangka Belitung Province come from outside the Bangka Belitung area and even abroad. Very few business actors or investors originate from Bangka Belitung Province. I want to be a successful entrepreneur in my own area, I want to advance my region, not just take advantage and leave.
