Aims this study find a picture on the effect of Education Level, Knowledge Management (KM), Motivation and ability to Managerial
Performance. This study uses test reliability and validity of test data through approaches Structural Equation Model (SEM) with Partial
Least Square (PLS). The data was collected by a questionnaire that has been distributed to the logistics companies in Banten by using
purposive sampling.

The results of the data analysis of this study showed that there is a positive relationship between level of education and Managerial
Performance, there is a positive relationship between Knowledge Management and Managerial Performance, there is a positive

Limitations of this study are the selection of variables that
are not commonly associated with the theory of
knowledge management research that has not been
theoretically linked to managerial performance. This
condition creates a problem. If I make an empirical model
based on conditional assumptions, I have to use a variable
that is related to the theory used and practical context. As
a result, the effect of testing the model and simultaneously
managing not as applicable in the context of theoretical.
This makes it very difficult to separate the effect and
interpretation. Future studies should examine all types of
companies to determine whether there is a similar
relationship. In addition, different measures of results and
knowledge management capabilities should be explored to
