Logistics support of naval expeditionary units
MetadataShow full item record
This project is an assessment of the NAVCENT logistics system as it relates to support of naval expeditionary units such as Naval Construction Forces (NCF), Naval Special Warfare (NSW) forces, Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) units, and Fleet Hospitals. Based on literature from strategic management, logistics, and supply chain management, the research evaluates the existing theater logistics capabilities and the requirements of the supported expeditionary units. Due to the current world situation and availability of information, the focus is on the U.S. Naval Forces Central Command (NAVCENT) Area o Responsibility (AOR). A key finding is that the NAVCENT logistics system is adequate, but inefficient. Adequacy points to the fact that the resources and capabilities are in place in theater, while the inefficiencies are explained by lack of execution. The report recommends increased integration, awareness and doctrinal understanding in order to improve the NAVCENT logistics system. Sponsorship is provided by the Naval Operational Logistics Support Center, a newly created organization that serves as the focal point for operational logistics in the Navy and Marine Corps.
