Prior to becoming GM of IBT, Sonny was the Operations Director of PT Sarana Daya Mandiri from 2008 with responsibility of managing the dredging project for the new Barito River sea channel and for its ongoing maintenance and management. Before joining SDM in 2008 he was the head of Logistics Business for Surabaya area with AKR Corporindo, an internationally recognised Indonesian chemical manufacturer and trader.

The South Pulau Laut Coal Terminal operated by IBT and with a capacity of 12 million tonnes per year is in a unique position in Indonesia's coal trade of being one of only two public terminals in the country which can undertake coal handling services for any coal producer rather than being dedicated to a single supplier. Because of this, the terminal has been able to develop an expanding business with producers and traders who utilize the Terminal's services for coal assembly and shiploading due to its ability to undertake coal blending of differing types while maintaining quality requirements and control.
In 2008, IBT entered into a BOOT agreement with Shell to develop a fuel storage and distribution center at the terminal which comprises 4 storage tanks with a total capacity of 80,000 kiloliters and a new fuel berth alongside the coal jetty which handles tanker inloading and fuel barge outloading systems. This operation is managed by Shell and has an annual capacity of 720,000 kiloliters and is designed to not only provide fuel supply security to Adaro's mining operations but to develop additional liquid bulk business to third parties to the benefit of IBT.
During 2010, IBT's coal tonnage performance increased over 2009 and even with weather related production slowdowns at mines, a tonnage increase of 34% was achieved with the year's throughput reaching 6.23 million tonnes with 95 ships being loaded, as compared with 4.64 million tonnes in the previous year. The Group's share of this tonnage through Adaro Indonesia and Coaltrade was 3.48 million tonnes which was only a marginal increase over 2009 with the marked improvement in coal throughput being due to the rapid growth in the number of third party users of the terminal.
The fuel storage and distribution center became operational in May and a total of 169,700 kiloliters was transhipped through the center to Adaro's fuel receival facilities at Kelanis on the Barito River for onward trucking to operational areas.
