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.
For overland sustainment, the CJDC's host-nation truck section coordinated truck support for all nations, becoming the single point of contact for procuring trucks to move rations, water, fuel, barrier materials, and major items.
