Providing logistic support to diverse forces is made all the more difficult when operating as part of an international or multinational body. This challenge is further pronounced when tackling campaigns that dramatically differ from recent experiences, for example Operations Other Than War (OOTW). You may be required to maintain complex supply chains across great distances and in areas with far less infrastructure than in recent theatres. The short term expeditionary nature of campaigns in the near future renders response times critical; in the case of humanitarian crises, responses are often required within days.
Defence IQ is delighted to bring you the 12th 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 2015 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.
