Transportation is the main component that ensures the optimal distribution of goods in the maritime logistics system of small Islands. Therefore, this research developed a Floating Logistics Supporting Facility (FLSF) to overcome the logistics problems on small Islands by implementing sustainable operational systems. The research samples used were Nias, Kisar, and Sangihe Islands in Indonesia, with dimension, propulsion, operation, and mooring utilized as the four primary considerations. An FLSF was applied as a floating terminal capable of accommodating loading and unloading operations, ship mooring, cargo storage, stacking, and dooring services. The result showed that an FLSF can be applied to logistics activities while considering the safety aspects and related regulations. Based on the results, the FLSF can improve the quality of sustainable logistics operations and increase economic growth in remote islands.
