Defence Logistics 2016 Conference

The world of 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. These changes mean that militaries and defence ministries will require greater support from both the manufacturers and suppliers of their equipment and from 3rd Party providers of logistics support. If solutions are not found that will enable forces to continue to operate in far-flung theatres, with confidence in the ability of their vehicles, weapons and supply chains to effectively meet their operational needs, their ability to conduct campaigns will be significantly and severely damaged...

We are delighted to bring you the 13th Annual Defence Logistics symposium, which will address all these challenges and more. Furthermore this year's event will be moving in an exciting new direction - I am delighted to announce that Defence Logistics 2016 will welcome a large number of representatives from large defence manufacturers, coming to discuss their specific supply chain challenges and to share common solutions.

This new dimension has been added to provide a unique insight into how the supply chains of some of the largest and most complicated Defence manufacturing projects are effectively managed.
