Logistics industry plays an important role in the nation’s economic and social opportunities in delivering positive multiplier effects such as improved market accessibility and occupation. Every aspect of logistics, namely maritime logistics is growing not only in specific nation but also globally. This reflects on the need for qualified, innovative and performed individuals to fill the manpower force. This study focuses on specific criteria required for marine logistics personnels especially in port operations and application of multi criteria decicion making approaches (MCDM) in analysing the selection of candidates. The results show that all approaches end up with the same candidate to be the best personnel hence supporting the consistency in decision making.
