Abstract:

This report details results of a comparative cost analysis conducted to assess the relative cost differences due to single siting of stock at selected DLA and Navy storage sites. Additionally, all vendor and customer service patterns, which would result from single siting of stock, were identified. These patterns were identified in order to provide insight on the resulting business distributions which would need to be supported from each site. This study has included actual Navy retail level data in addition to DoD wholesale data. Inclusion of retail data has had a significant impact on study results. A major constraint on the study is that capacity limits at the selected storage sites were not considered. Study results indicate that the two largest Navy support areas Norfolk and San Diego offer significant potential for materiel distribution savings since those two locations have both a large local within 50 miles customer base and are well positioned with respect to vendor locations.
