Need a shipping from malaysia to Indonesia
after the (for years working) Shipping-Connection from Penang to Medan with the Onion Boat of Mr. Lim is NOT running anymore since April 2012, coz the Authorities in Port Belwan (Indonesia) do not allow anymore to unload Bikes from Mr. Lims Boat, we are searching for other Options to go to Indonesia.
IF anybody has some Contacts that can help us: Agents, Shipping Companies or Traveler who did is with another way or even heard from other an option, please let us know.
PS: we tried already the option from port klang with the passenger ferry. but didnt worked out coz of broken down ferry. so we searching for alternatives.
Dont ask, why the authorities in belawan not allow anymore to unload bikes. I guess they Authorities are pissed of, of something.

It probably of no use but in 2008, i shipped Medan to Penang!!!! I think mr lim helped out then from his penang office...do a hubb search coz a few of us where doing the same thing and passing the details along....
If i remember correctly shipping to Belawan will mean problems getting in as the indonesian cuctoms there want some sort of letter to say u have permission to ride. Stick at it Indonesia is a highlight...bloody great place..
Sorry i cant help more good luck
You might want to try a company called Aseantex . It is owned by two brothers (Abul and Assir 1$). Very helpfull blokes and they do a lot of overlanders (bikes and trucks).
Their office is located in Port Klang.

But later on in Indonesia, I personally met several bikers, who were having very large problems to get their bikes to Indo at all, even with carnet, and some of them mentioned some mysterious ´letter´ that they, according to the customs, were missing. One even said customs demand from him a ´Recommendation letter from the United Nations´!!
I am 100% certain, that such a letter was not required at Belawan in February 2008... but I know it´s Asia, so things are bound to change. Penang->Belawan seemed like a good route to take at that time, because it was frequently used by many overlanders, and so the customs knew the correct procedures for temporary import. If they don´t, that´s often how your troubles start (like when you go to some less-frequently used border station).
And yeah, Indonesia is an amazing place to ride!
Hey guys. Not sure if you read my firt entry

thank you ben,
maybe you didnt read it though, we are loking to go to Indonesia not back to Malaysia from Indo...
It s about the Indonesian site, they dont let you unload even if you are at the port in Indonexia....
hi i know you want to go to indo thats why i recomended you try port klang to dumai
but i dont think it will be as cheap as mr lim's onion boat.
mr lim told me that it was the indo navy that was the problem wanting big bribes.
cheers , ben
Thats what Mr. Lim wrote me:
So far we have sending a few hundreds of motorbikes from Penang to Belawan until last month, and i am sorry to inform you that from this month onwards the Indonesia authorities will not allowed our "onion boat" to carry motorbikes to Belawan. My advice is: try Port Klang to Tanjong Babai, or port of Malaka to Dumai in Indonesia. other wice you have to use container.
@ben - when did you shipped your bikes from belawan to penang?
do you have the contacts from the agent on indo site?
we used Pt melda jaya
Jl bangka timur 49
We shipped on 17 april, no good for shipping from malaysia to indonesia only working for bikes leaving indonesia. REcommend for bikes going from malaysia to indonesia to get in touch with aseantex at port klang!
[a Google search for it didn't provide any clues]
