RLC FOUNDATION EVENT DONNINGTON – WEDNESDAY 16 OCTOBER 2019
Team Leidos with Kuehne & Nagel and support from Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S) Army hosted a ‘demand forecasting and risk management in logistics event’ at Donnington on Wed 16 Oct 19. Lt Col Fiona Walker, DE&S LCST Land & Army Domain Account Manager gave an insight into Logistic Commodities and Service Transformation for future global military Distribution, Freight and Supply operations. It encompassed integration, outsourcing, procurement and storage of logistic commodities in partnership with industry experts. This partnering arrangement has already seen improved service delivery and substantial financial savings for the MOD.
Mr Paul Stannett, Customer Relations Manager Team Leidos explained how their integrated supply chain supports front line commands and the DE&S Project Teams. This has been achieved by re-brigading of stock and site rationalisation, reconfiguration of the transport network and an improvement of service delivery against the backdrop of new IS systems development and implementation.
Mr Tom Kay, Head of Future Planning Kuehne & Nagel described military Storage, Distribution and Freight operations from yesteryear and highlighted the significant improvements made through major infrastructure investment, synchronisation of systems, policy, process and people.
Following the presentations delegates were given a tour of the new Defence Fulfilment Centre and Operations Warehouse. The size of these buildings and the scale of their operations reinforced the considerable investment by our contract partners within the military supply chain network.
An excellent event which was attended by 68 industry and military delegates. Thank you Team Leidos, Kuehne & Nagel and DE&S. It was one of our best event to date!
