Abstract:

These are exciting and challenging times at the Defense Logistics Agency. The U.S. military buildup is in full swing in Afghanistan, and warfighters depend every day on the work done here at America s only combat logistics support agency. From a military logistics perspective, Afghanistan is far more challenging an environment than Iraq. We have developed capabilities in Iraq that we are now leveraging in Afghanistan, but the infrastructure is more austere and the local economy is not as advanced. Operational success hinges on continuous, stable logistics solutions, which we are working to provide through the Northern Distribution Network. Using this route, we ve been able to get construction materials, food and spare parts into a land-locked country. More than 80 percent of the containers shipped through this passage have been filled with DLA materials.
