Abstract:

Mobilization logistics is a growing problem within the U.S. Coast Guard. There have never been any personnel resources dedicated to planning for sustainment of Coast Guard mobilization efforts. The result is that the endurance of mobilized or deployed Coast Guard forces cannot be reliably predicted. This paper examines the evolution of the services logistics processes to gain an understanding of the forces that have driven its development. An overview of the current logistics structure is provided to illustrate its complexity. Modern logistic doctrine and principles employed by others are then examined for applicability to the Coast Guard. Finally, a conceptual framework is proposed for development of a mobilization logistics doctrine for the Coast Guard. sdw
