Abstract : Logistics modernization, end-to-end logistics, logistics transformation, and just-in-time logistics -- whichever name it is being called today, it is coming and it will change how Marines receive logistical support in the future. Many service members continue to ask why the need for change?, and why is the Marine Corps placing this transformation so high on the priority list, side by side with the Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV)? For years just-in-case logistics has been the Marine Corps' primary supply practice, but with better processes and systems, and more education and demonstrations as to what these systems will do for the end user, consumer confidence will increase and just-in-time logistics will lead to a lighter and leaner combat logistics support.
