Logistics is changing! In a world of uncertain requirements and demands of future campaigns, militaries all over the world are being forced to adapt their supply chains and the life cycle management of their assets. With emerging operational challenges in theatres ranging from Eastern Europe to North and Central Africa, and growing threats from organisations such as ISIS and Al Shabaab, logisticians are faced with a host of new difficulties in supporting forces on operations. Such difficulties are accentuated by the increase in joint operations, often launched rapidly in response to crises, which have rendered efficient and flexible supply chain management vital.
Defence IQ is delighted to bring you the 12th Annual Defence Logistics symposium, which will address all these challenges and more (Access the agenda here).
