Abstract : There is probably no single commodity more vital than petroleum to the conduct of military operations and to the industrial economy that must support it. Because of its vital nature and the resouce constraints placed on the Department of Defense, it is imperative that the Petroleum Logistic System be the most dependable, responsive, and economical system possible. This study concludes that the current system is dependable and responsive and that economies under the single manager concept are being reaped from the modified plan in operation today.
