Abstract : Combatant commanders require a seamless system consisting of organizations molded together at the strategic, operational, and tactical levels responsible for logistics support across the spectrum of operations for joint forces. This paper proposes the creation of a unified logistics command providing the strategic level point of contact for all logistics functions. A unified logistics command integrates and manages all national level resources while eliminating unnecessary duplication of functions at the strategic level providing the Department of Defense with a more effective and efficient solution to logistics support. A unified logistics command with its subordinate planning and coordination cell at each geographic combatant command and a joint logistics support command at the theater level affords the combatant commander with a single logistics manager for planning, coordinating, and executing responsive logistical sustainment.
