The Defense Logistics Agency and U.S. Transportation Command have discussed how both organizations would address future mission challenges through a joint plan.
DLA and Transcom outlined the joint plan at the Fort Belvoir, Virginia-based McNamara Headquarters Complex on Wednesday along with past and current work for future operations, DLA said Friday.
DLA-Transcom Division Chief Air Force Col. Michelle Hall highlighted recent works such as humanitarian support to Iraqi and Syrian refugees and the development of the sustainment dashboard electronic system to track shipments to customers’ locations.
DLA also formed two support teams under Transcom’s Joint Task Force-Port Opening to operate a port of debarkation and handle cargos to support combatant command-led contingencies.
The two organizations also sought to forge partnerships in cybersecurity and participate in joint exercises to address cyber risks.
DLA and Transcom plan to team up with geographic combatant commands, military services and other agencies to develop plans for sustainment distribution in each region over the next 18 months.
The discussion also covered lessons learned from exercises, operating procedures and the development of skills for DLA and Transcom employees.
