International Defence Logistics 2017
The procurement, transport and replacement of military supplies continue to pose considerable challenges for logisticians. Today’s operations demand a lighter, more efficient supply chain, with the capacity to deliver resources to isolated theatres at speed.
February’s conference will be an invaluable opportunity for military and industry alike to confront the difficulties of logistics supply in the post-Afghanistan era. With no major theatres of war ongoing, the event will consider the demands of a return to contingency, examining the need to develop a logistical framework suitably robust to deal with rapid deployment, and suitably uniform to encompass joint international efforts.
Key themes at International Defence Logistics 2017 will include:
- Overcoming unpredictability of demand by improving oversight of the supply chain
- Capitalising on new technologies to reduce the logistical footprint
- Avoiding vendor failure by better integrating contractors into the supply chain
- Preparing for rapid response operations by maximizing efficiency
Led by senior members of the military, you will be well-equipped to deal with logistics in the information age, harnessing new technology to promote efficiency, interoperability and battle-readiness.
