Abstract : The 2004 Department of Defense Logistics Transformation Strategy identified the need for the development of an organizational structure to provide oversight of joint logistics for deployed forces. U.S. Joint Forces Command (USJFCOM) proposed four overarching functions that joint logistics must accomplish to truly enable the Joint Force Commander (JFC): joint logistics command and control (C2); logistics collaboration; joint support planning; and joint support execution and tracking. USJFCOM has also identified fifteen joint logistics seams and gaps which recur without fail in exercises and operations alike. This study analyzes four proposed logistics C2 organizational constructs to determine the optimal design to perform these four functions while mitigating the seams and gaps. The Joint Force Commander can tailor the recommended solution to meet the needs of -- and to leverage the logistics formation assigned to -- his command.
