Author(s): Elfrida Ratnawati, Mellisa Towadi, Januardo SP Sihombing, Endang Pandamdari

Activities at the port must be regulated by service management and regulations related to activities carried out at the port. This article examines the role of services and the implementation of port-related regulations in Indonesia. The method used in this study is a normative legal research method analyzed descriptively from various sources of literature related to port development in Indonesia. The results showed that the policy's implementation had not been implemented optimally and the limited human resources who perform the field's performance so that the performance is not optimal. Therefore, cooperation between existing human resources in implementing policies is very important to increase ports' contribution to improving the national economy, where ports are development accelerators that spur Indonesia's socio-economic activities. Indonesian ports must regulate their performance by improving performance-supporting facilities and infrastructure, such as loading and unloading goods and services. Port development requires a large investment, but port managers are advised to invite domestic or foreign investors to provide investment in the context of port development if the available funds are insufficient.
