COMBAT LOGISTICS 2018 AGENDA HIGHLIGHTS
Modernising military supply chains to meet demands of current and future operations is now a top priority for NATO and partner nations. Coupled with the Enhanced Forward Presence initiative, many nations are looking to procure and develop new supply systems.
Combat Logistics presents the perfect opportunity to assess the performance and mission effectiveness of modern military supply chains at an international level. The event will be structured around “performance based logistics”, allowing solution providers and military organisations to share their newly developed skill sets.
Chaired by Brigadier (Retd) Jon Brittain, Former Head of Defence Logistics Policy, UK MoD, Combat Logistics 2018 will explore the demand of modern militaries and promote partnerships between OEMs, military officials and support contractors so they can modernise the military supply chain together.
CONTRACTER PARTNERSHIPS IN MODERN OPERATION
Forces are adapting to become more reactive and mobile, indicating the logistics burden for future military operations will likely fall to contractors. The growing trend in outsourcing crucial military requirements, supply chains and delivery duties has already had an improved effect in recent operations. Delegates will analyse, assess and plan for current and future capability requirements that contractors can fill.
MANAGING LOGISTICS PERFORMANCE DATA TO IMPROVE EFFICIENCY
Never have militaries been able to collect statistics, data and performance records with such ease. Optimising this information has proved crucial to many civilian logistics agencies and allowed them to become to become more efficient and effective. Delegates will understand how to take advantage of this information and using it to gain a tactical edge will act as a real force multiplier in reactive future scenarios.
OPTIMISING SUPPLY CHAINS FOR DEPLOYED FORCES
Using industry to help run smooth and efficient supply chain operations has proven invaluable to modern forces. Commercial organisations have access to greater resources and the ability to rapidly invest in the latest technology to ensure the customer gets the best service. Delegates will examine how services contractors can supply to the military and provide greater efficiency on operations.
MEDICAL LOGISTICS IN THE MILITARY DOMAIN
Medical logistics is a critical part of combat logistics and allows the military to look after its key assets – people. Medical logistics entails not just the movement of equipment, but also casualty evacuation, movement of medicine and transportation of blood, all of which require different strategies of movement and control. The following session sets out how medical logistics seeks to optimise effectiveness and efficiency of delivery.
STORAGE AND DELIVERY CHALLENGES IN AUSTERE ENVIRONMENTS
When operating in demanding environments militaries become increasingly reliant on the supply chain to stay sustained. Delegates will look at how militaries have coped with the help of industry in austere operating areas.
CO-ORDINATING A JOINT FORCE APPROACH TO MEET LOGISTIC DEMANDS
Co-ordinating a joint force approach to meet logistical demands doctrine, tactics and systems operate at maximum efficiency. Because of the wide range of system used by armed forces, many nations lack a set process on how to co-ordinate and meet logistical demands. This section looks at how the joint forces can maximise their supply chain efficiency and the role of contractors in achieving this.
MEETING EVENTUALITIES WITH A CREDIBLE RESPONSE
Recent years have demonstrated the need to be prepared for all eventualities with forces supplied on a range of scenarios. These include disaster response, national security and conventional warfare and means logisticians need to be ready to supply front line forces for a variety of tasks. The closing session will explore how the military supply chain can respond to different operations.
