The MTVR is being fielded by the Marine Corps as a replacement of its aging fleet of five-ton cargo trucks. The MTVR program includes the Marine Corps' first use of Contractor Logistics Support (CLS) for a large tactical ground transportation vehicle. MTVRs were employed during the buildup, major combat, and initial occupation phases of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF). This MBA project examines the role of CLS in the supply and maintenance support of the MTVR during the aforementioned phases of OIF. Through a literature study of CLS-related materials, examination of CLS contracts between the Marine Corps and Oshkosh Truck Corporation, interviews with Marine Corps MTVR program management personnel, and interviews with those who maintained and operated MTVRs during OIF, an in-depth study is presented. Analysis is applied to the data gathered to develop recommendations to optimize the use of CLS in support of the MTVR in a combat environment.
