Marine transportation industry is one of the most vital activities in the world. Demand to provide effective and efficient inter-regional connectivity within the marine transportation framework will be a common agenda in some areas. South Asia Pacific region has a member country of more than 14 countries. With the region's economic growth of about 5.3 percent, compared to the world average of 3.2 percent, because it is the most safe area compared to other regions (Antara, 2016). Almost 70% of total world trade takes place among countries in Asia Pacific. In this study, we try to focus on comparative analysis of IT support system to support the operation of marine transportation services in 3 countries namely Indonesia, Malaysia and USA. Some port systems in the archipelagic country particularly the South Asia Pacific region have adopted approaches such as the ERP system, but are still partial. Each part of the port management creates its own information system, and links it to every organization's website. Utilizing existing ERP systems, will be key in designing new frameworks with IOT concepts. With the development of IOT techniques and major investments in marine transportation systems in the Asia Pacific region, intelligent transportation will be able to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of marine and port transportation services processes. The technology of the Internet of Things will enable the development of transportation systems to be more intelligent, safe, harmonious, and energy efficient.
