This research uses descriptive qualitative approach. Logistics management theory and SWOT analysis are used by researchers as an analysis tool. The results of this study are the logistics management of PT PMS has ability to maintain Navy ships to support sea defense. Constraints faced by PT PMS include: (1) High sedimentation; (2) Inlet flow is crowded, narrow and shallow; and (4) Small dock capacity. The strategies developed by PT PMS to overcome obstacles in the maintenance of the navy’s ships: (1) Implement efficiency in HR, methods, budgets, and infrastructure to maximize profits; (2) Cooperation with similar companies; (3) Investing: dredging, increasing the capacity of the dockyard, and firefighting equipment, and damage control (controlling losses) so it does not get worse than expected.
