Building Partner Logistics Capacity
ARMY WAR COLL CARLISLE BARRACKS PA CENTER FOR STRATEGIC LEADERSHIP
Pagination or Media Count:
Since 11 September 2001, U.S. policy-makers have placed greater emphasis on the need to work closely with global partners and allies in todays complex and challenging security environment. Many U.S. partner nations do not have the military capacity to effectively meet their security needs, and the United States mitigates this vulnerability by building partner capacity. In the course of building partner capacity, logistics capacity must be a key consideration, because logistics capacity sets the limits of what a nation can do militarily. Many U.S. partners around the world do not have suitable logistics capability and need assistance building it, but the United States does not focus on this aspect of security cooperation. Strategic leaders can help global partner nations become more self-reliant and self-sustaining by placing greater emphasis on building partner nation logistics capacity at the strategic and theater levels.
