Abstract: This paper proposes a system for the management of marine logistics in the case of an emergency or disaster. We have developed a planning model for marine logistics in case of disaster. In this model, we optimise marine logistics by assigning ships to transportation routes. Then we applied this model to estimate the required resources for marine logistics in the case of the Tonankai earthquake. We designed two scenarios of damage caused by this earthquake, and applied this model to each scenario. Our model suggests that for the case of the Tonankai earthquake, 24 ships and 392,000 tons of goods should be prepared.
