Abstract:

In todays world of terrorism, failing states, and standing possibilities of simultaneous multiple-front confrontations and peacekeeping operations, combatant commanders have not sufficiently ensured effective measures for incorporating multinational logistics concepts into operational planning. A case study of Operation Joint Endeavor logistical planning measures provides an illustrative example to examine those facets of an operation that may have been enhanced through the use of multinational support enablers and support options and advances the idea that continued reliance on ad hoc logistics will ultimately result in major losses of efficiency and effectiveness.
