CCIC Jakarta established its own coal laboratory in Banjarbaru, South Kalimantan, Indonesia in April 2009. Indonesia being the largest exporter of thermal coal in the world and the fact that Kalimantan is rich in coal resources, Banjarbaru in the South provided the perfect platform for the geographical expansion of our coal services due to its location being one of the main supply routes to China market.
Subsequently, in June 2010, CCIC Jakarta established its second coal laboratory in Samarinda, East Kalimantan. The third coal laboratory in Palembang, the capital city of the south Sumatra province in Indonesia, started operations in April 2012. In the effort to demonstrate strict compliance to the highest quality and technical assurance, on 20th June 2013, all the three coal laboratories have been accredited to ISO 17025 standards by KAN (Komite Akreditasi Nasional), which is the National Accreditation body of Indonesia.
With this setup, we are now able to provide a complete range of services to the international coal community.

CCIC Jakarta can now deliver accurate, timely and reliable superintending services with integrity to the coal trading community. Through our experienced surveyors and technicians, we can help to minimize losses and maintain quality at various stages of the coal production process, its transportation at origin and destination.
The quantity of coal can be determined by the weight or volume of coal at stockpile by using a theodolite. Another method is to determine the weight of coal for loading/discharging to/from barge and/or vessel using the draught survey method as per the United Nations Economic Commission (UNEC / ESC) standard.
