Why You Should Attend This Summit:

Today’s threat environment presents a multitude of serious challenges to supply chain and logistics operations. Mission success on the battlefield is dependent on reliable and timely flows of material and people uncontested across the globe. Amid an era of strategic competition, this is becoming an extremely complex and ever-evolving task. Senior level experts will offer insights into the modernization of U.S. infrastructure, logistics, and supply chain capabilities to effectively meet current and future challenges and threats. The necessity for material readiness and reliable logistics support are essential elements for maintaining the effectiveness and safety of the Joint Force.

The 2023 Assured Logistics Summit will explore efforts to supply persistent logistics in unpredictable operational environments, address the challenges of transporting materials, equipment, and people in an era of Strategic Competition, provide crucial supply and sustainment support to partners and allies, leverage data and technological capabilities to enhance sustainment and supply chain functions, and partner with industry, federal agencies, and global partners to ensure the sustainability and survivability of the defense supply chain. The event will also convene two panels: one on bulk fuel management and delivery and the other on renewable and alternative energy sources.

DSI’s team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Summit’s content and focus areas, and we will assemble the most respected minds in the Assured Logistics and Sustainment community, industry, and academia as well as key policy makers across DoD, military services, federal government, and industry. Our non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all services and organizations to bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers.
