Lockheed Martin has opened a new command center to support its defense logistics agency program, which provides automotive parts support for military vehicles.
Called the Global Sustainment Command Center, the facility will be staffed with logistics specialists tasked with overseeing inventory forecasting, order management and distribution. Their main order of business will be ensuring Lockheed Martin’s Fleet Automotive Support Initiative-Global (FASI-G) program runs smoothly. More than 80 percent of the company’s supplier base comes from small businesses.
“This facility will provide robust and reliable service, leveraging recent innovations to meet the needs of the U.S. military,” said Rich Lockwood, vice president of Lockheed Martin’s New Ventures line of business. “Ultimately, it all comes down to supporting the warfighter with the right part at the right place at the right time, every time.”
Lockheed Martin won the competition to support land-based vehicle sustainment for all tactical and non-tactical U.S. military land-based vehicles over 10 years. FASI-G is part of the Defense Department’s initiative to improve logistics and sustainment support to forces around the world through performance based logistics.
