Combat Logistics presents the perfect opportunity to assess the performance and mission effectiveness of modern military supply chains at an international level.
Combat Logistics 2018 presents the perfect opportunity to assess the performance and mission effectiveness of modern military supply chains at an international level. The event will be structured around “performance based logistics”, allowing solution providers and military organisations to share their newly developed skill sets.
Modernising military supply chains to meet the demands of current and future operations is now a top priority for NATO and partner nations. Coupled with the Enhanced Forward Presence initiative, many nations are looking to procure and develop new supply systems.
The meeting will begin with the Pre-Conference Mobile Forces Focus Day. This will explore logistics in the modern day, mobile force where it is imperative that the military is able to maintain and supply highly mobile forces in a quick and efficient manner.
With a change in the operational theatre and with NATO currently preparing and equipping the Very High Readiness Joint Task Force, it is imperative that the military supply chain be able to keep up and supply these rapid reaction forces while on the move.
The 2-day conference will examine how demand might be reduced in the future to optimise logistics footprints, to reduce logistic drag and to enhance fighting power. The achievement of this aspiration is recognised as a joint endeavour between military forces, OEMS and support contractors who must work together to modernise military supply chains.
Never have militaries been able to collect statistics, data and performance records with such ease. Optimising this information has proved crucial to many civilian logistics agencies and allowed them to become more efficient and effective. Taking advantage of this information and using it to gain a tactical edge will act as a real force multiplier in reactive future scenarios.
Combat Logistics 2018 will be chaired by Major General (Retd) Ian Copeland, Former Director Joint Support Chain, British Army. Free entry for serving military.
