CREATE GLOBAL LOGISTICS AWARENESS
Findings from FD2030 planning and wargames indicate that to achieve resilient logistics networks, we need to view and understand our logistics resources differently than we have in the past. We will need tools to help commanders visualize logistics resources in space and time across the JLEnt. This will give us the ability to provide sustainment and distribution options based on threat, inventory position, and protection requirements.
Diversifying distribution refers to creating options in the methods, nodes, and modes available to the MCILE in staging, delivery, retrograde, and recovery of assets and logistics services to deployed forces. This objective addresses the need to capitalize on both existing and emerging distribution capabilities to support geographically dispersed forces in contested environments.
Meeting sustainment requirements in contested areas will require Marines to plan for multiple methods of sustainment across each of the six functions of logistics. To provide this flexibility to forward forces, we will reimagine planning and execution for the logistics warfighting function and how it aligns to support the other warfighting functions. When feasible and appropriate, we will leverage demand reduction principles and technologies to reduce requirements and cumbersome stockpiles.
MAKE THE INSTALLATIONS READY FOR A CONTESTED ENVIRONMENT
As we adapt to the demands of all-domain battlefields, advancements in technology, and the challenges of peer and near-peer competition, our installations will play an even greater role supporting our warfighting concepts than in recent past. Smart, resilient, networked installations will provide stand-in forces with enhanced capabilities to recover quickly from attack, persist in contested spaces, and sustain distributed formations across multiple axes.
DEVELOP LOGISTICS PROFESSIONALS FOR 21ST CENTURY
There is no resource more precious or more critical to the continued success of our Corps than our Marines and civilians. Today, our senior logisticians have a wealth of combat and deployed experience that we must leverage to develop the knowledge and understanding of those who are just now entering our ranks. We have a unique opportunity to adapt their collective experience into future concepts and doctrine and will do so by incorporating past lessons and best practices into our training and education curricula.
