In the past five years, the Base Realignment and Closure Commissions BRAC have ordered the Defense Logistics Agency DLA to close or deactivate 15-20 distribution centers. Consequently, DLA has been forced to relocate millions of items of wholesale stock to the remaining depots. Past relocation actions have placed most, if not all, displaced stock at one of the Primary Distribution Sites in Susquehanna, PA and at San Joaquin, CA without regard to the expected location of demand for that stock. We present a method for relocating stock that places stock near its expected demand points, thus reducing future delivery costs and logistics response time.
