The logistics process is used for humanitarian operations in the humanitarian logistics. This research shows how important the humanitarian logistics is and how it needs to be considered by all parties. The location of Indonesia which is on the equator allows the meeting of the two plates of the Mediterranean and the Pacific which causes frequent earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, and even tsunami. Indonesia, which has often experienced natural disasters, is still experiencing difficulties in the process of preparing for and handling them. The earthquake in Palu Indonesia on October 28, 2018 has left 2.073 people killed, 10.679 seriously injured, 8.130 lightly injured, and 680 missing. This disaster management process took place from 28 October 2018 to 26 September 2018. This event also shocked the world and taught every country to be better prepared for future emergencies. This research was conducted qualitatively through literature related to published material, analyzing official journals, and conducting direct interviews. From the analysis of secondary data, it was found that the study of humanitarian logistics is still an area that needs to be improved from time to time. It is also a very important area of research that requires attention and support from society, organizations, and governments.
