Logistics data provides the tools Army decision-makers need to support readiness and modernization initiatives to move us from the Industrial Age to the Information Age. Sometimes, that data may provide surprising results.

While compiling a spreadsheet capturing the headquarters brigade staff years of service to the military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command, it was discovered that there was a total of 597 combined years of service between the Department of the Army Civilians at the 597th Transportation Brigade.

After completion of Balikatan 2022, all military vehicles from the Army Prepositioned Stock 3, military vehicles assigned to the 402nd Army Field Support Brigade are successfully uploaded to the U.S. Navy Ship Red Cloud at Subic Bay, Philippines April 11, 2022. APS allows organizations, such as the 8th TSC to plan, integrate, and synchronize the storing of equipment around the globe to enable interoperability and strategic operations. By storing equipment to enable joint interoperability, the Army’s APS reduces deployment timelines, improve sustainment capacity and capabilities, while also increasing combat power to support contingency operations worldwide. As the U.S. Indo-Pacific materiel integrator, the 8th TSC synchronizes capabilities and resources across the theater, enabling both our land forces and those of our allies and partners. Our mission is to plan, integrate, and synchronize theater distribution and sustainment operations with our joint logistics enterprise partners, stabilizing and securing the Indo-Asia Pacific Region.
