Abstract : Desert Shield/Desert Storm was a resounding logistical success. Record am personnel and tonnage were moved across record distances in record times. This is an effort truly worthy of praise. It is also a effort worthy of close review and analysis. This paper evaluates and analyzes current and pending logistical management systems to see if they provide efficient support during contingency operations. The lessons learned from Desert Shield/Desert Storm and the in-process Combined Arms Support Command study of the Total Distribution System coupled with doctrine and literature review provide the basis for the paper.
