Each of the Services Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and the Defense Supply Agency currently operate independently designed systems designed to control the storage and movement of bulk stocks from the point of purchase to the point of consumption. Each Service and the Defense Supply Agency own and operate their own depots, some of which are in the same geographical area. This essay examines the nature of the wholesale system, the major disparities and discusses areas for possible improvement in terms of lower cost or improved responsiveness. A brief discussion of trends in industry is also included. Author
