It is argued that logistics is the management of the movement of resources between the point of origin and the place of consumption to meet, for example, the needs of consumers or organizations. Logistics resources can include both tangible goods such as food, materials, equipment, fluids, and personnel, as well as abstract items such as time, information, particles, and energy. Logistics of physical items often involves the integration of information flow, material handling, manufacturing, packaging, inventory, shipping, warehousing and, in some cases, security. The article suggests: Improving the quality of roads will speed up the transport process; Increasing the type of consolidation services will reduce the cost so that the products are available at a low and economical cost. The main recommendations proposed by the author are: continuous improvement of port facilities in Southeast Asia is recommended; an understanding of the supply chain process is required; the growth of logistics must be at the same pace as the development of FMCG.
