Pentagon Looks for Better Way to Supply Troops


The Defense Department expects to unveil this month its latest plan to improve the management and distribution of combat supplies, repair parts and materials that make up the Pentagon’s US$162 billion logistics chain. The plan seeks to fix what congressional critics deem wasteful inefficiencies in the way supplies are managed and to improve the timeliness of deliveries to troops in the field.

Since the beginning of the war in Iraq, the Defense Department has made “noticeable progress” in managing its enormous supply chain, Sen. George V. Voinovich, R-Ohio, told defense officials at a hearing of the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee.
