Logistics sector increasingly important role in supporting economic development and prosperity of a country. The purpose of the blueprint for structuring and development of Indonesia's logistics sector is to improve the competitiveness of national businesses in the global market.

They were surveyed and interviewed to collect the necessary information, in addition to analyzing the existing records of liner companies. The results identified logistic actors that classified into five groups of perpetrators and their role in sea shipping network activities. Coordination  in logistics management is a complex processes, covering many activities and stages, and involves many parties. To ensure the smooth flow of goods shipped, it takes an intensive coordination, information and communication technologies that can support these logistics activities. Results of this study is becoming the initial data in the analysis and design of structural model of sea shipping network.
