Our History

Our Journey

With over 40 years of experience, PT. Laut Timur Ardiprima is one of the leading consumer goods product distributors in Indonesia.  This privately held company was first founded by Susanto Soelistio and family in 1971 in Samarinda. It’s main business was the export of earth resources. With Kalimantan’s increasing power of purchase which leads to high demands of consumer goods in the early 1990’s LTA begins initiating the trading and distribution business.

 Our first major expansion was the Banjarmasin Branch in the mid 1990’s. With demand of rapid business growth, we extended our distribution scope to the Balikpapan region in 1997, and Palangka Raya in 1999. Since then, more expansions have been in place in the last decade covering the most strategic distribution points in Kalimantan.

Our business partners are leading multi national companies and home based company in their respective fields.

PT. Laut Timur Ardiprima currently operates across Kalimantan (apart from West Kalimantan) with a strong logistics knowledge, manpower, and professionalism. With nineteen main and second branch offices, supported by a strong supply chain model and multifunctional collaboration, we are striving to provide the best logistical services and high quality service to our partners and customers.
