"This study, 'Logistics as a Competitive War Fighting Advantage,' is a product of the Defense Business Board (DBB). Recommendations by the DBB contained within are offered only as advice to the Department of Defense (DoD) and do not represent DoD policy. [...] The task group interviewed and took briefings from over 40 senior officials and experts from within DoD, other government agencies, and the private sector. By interacting with the breadth of logistics professionals, it ensured the task group members understood the current challenges associated with the domestic logistics enterprise, as well as the challenges to supply chain resiliency posed by our Nation's potential adversaries. The task group compiled and compared logistics best practices from government and the private sector, reviewed applicable laws, regulations and policies, and reviewed DoD strategic documents, reports, and available data. This included audits and studies from think tanks, corporations, businesses, and government agencies."
