In recent years, the development of the bonded logisticscenter has been quite difficult to be implemented due to some limitations in defining factors. This study is aimed at evaluating the opportunity of bonded logistics enter development by identifying potential factors and obtaining the final weight value using the fuzzy AHP method. In this research, the main input was filling in the expert questionnaires. The numbers of expert respondents were nine people, sorted by their expertise and their significance in regard to the bonded logisticscenter. The fuzzy existence was used to obtain the relative weight value of each factor.
