In achieving our aim of becoming a leading marine solutions provider, TRUST Group is focused on delivering excellent excellence together with safety, speed and innovation to stay on the leading edge. Specifically, TRUST Group has focused on differentiating ourselves from other domestic players in the market by improving our capabilities and building synergies with global partners. Our goal is to become a provider of Integrated Marine Expertise and Offshore technology services (IMOS) on par with major global competitors, for long-term competitive sustainability even after the cabotage law is one day lifted.
At its core, TRUST Group has the advantage of a steady cashflow from its core barging business, which largely serves leading Pulp and Paper clients - a growing sector with Indonesia as the world's leading exporter of Pulp & Paper - and CPO clients, a very stable industry with low volatility in pricing.
Augmenting these tug and barge operations are four areas of growth, namely: Offshore Support & Engineering, Vessel Management & Marine Services, Marine Information Technology Services, and related logistics and infrastructure such as warehousing. Each of these four areas has strong room for growth, while at the same time supporting one another through many synergies.
To ensure that each business area operates properly and transparently in compliance with applicable domestic and international regulations as well as safety standards, various operational procedures trainings have been implemented, including strict safety and environmental procedures that act to mitigate our environmental footprint and safeguard our operations from accidental risk. Regular audits, both internal and external, are held to test and review compliance with these procedures as well as the overall effectiveness of the control system, for good corporate governance.
Through all these endeavors, we continue to seek out synergies through possible partnerships. We are fortunate in that highly regarded global companies such as Schlumberger and Svitzer, and more recently Gulf Energy Oman and AIF Capital, have been willing to partner with us for mutual benefit. These are all alliances that we will deepen and explore as TRUST actively moves to enhance its position by participating deep sea Oil and Gas Exploration activities in East Indonesia, with use of advanced facilities such as DP2 - DP3 Multi Purpose Intervention Vessels as part of its roadmap to be a leading Indonesian Marine Company that complies with global standards in every way.
