This paper aims to examine halal warehousing, halal transportation, and halal terminal on halal logistic performance with the mediating effect of halal logistic integration and moderating influence on environmental uncertainty. This research has shown that environmental uncertainty has a positive and significant impact on halal logistics performance. Halal logistics integration has a significant effect on halal logistics performance. The halal logistic integration is affected by the halal terminally, significantly, similarly the halal logistic integration influenced by the halal transportation in the same way.  Considering the halal warehousing, it conversely influences the halal logistic integration, unlike others. In addition to this, both halal logistic integration and halal logistic performance share the same environmental uncertainty effect, moderately. The creativity effect of halal logistics integration on the factors such as product/service excellence, economic performance, competition, and sustainability are characteristically relevant, and the managers are implicated in keeping a keen observation of it. Therefore, while halal logistic application, the comparative advantage variable should be taken under consideration by LSPs to attain great benefits from it.
