maneuver forces, the CJDC tied all the entities together to leverage coalition logistics capabilities, using economy of force, to meet all requirements in the most efficient manner.
In order to effectively support the warfighter, the CJDC focused on the five tactical logistics imperatives: integration, anticipation, improvisation, responsiveness, and continuity.
Key personnel played a critical role in the effectiveness of the CJDC.
Before the CJDC was established, each coalition force was responsible for its own logistics support.
Still another example of the logistics difficulties facing the CJDC was using U.
The CJDC began planning to synchronize all coalition distribution assets by identifying what was available.
All of the coalition forces' national support elements began coordinating directly with the CJDC for logistics-distribution and combined-logistics operations.
While developing the concept of support for Operation Mountain Thrust, the CJDC anticipated that an intermediate staging base (ISB) would be required to support combat logistics patrols along the ground lines of communication (GLOC).
To illustrate some of the challenges facing the CJDC, consider the following statistics--
To ensure that the units had ample supplies on hand for the initial occupation of their forward positions, the CJDC coordinated to integrate host-nation trucks within the task force's movements.
During decisive maneuver operations, the inevitable challenges arose and the CJDC responded quickly with the required capabilities.
The other coalition forces required assistance, which the CJDC swiftly coordinated to provide.
