Lockheed Martin Now Providing Supply Chain Management of All U.S. Military Automotive Parts

June 10, 2009
Company opened its new Global Sustainment Command Center in Ohio to support business

Lockheed Martin announced last week that it began full operations as the supply chain manager for the U.S. military's global automotive parts needs.

In September 2008, the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) awarded Lockheed Martin the Fleet Automotive Support Initiative - Global (FASI-G) contract 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 the warfighter around the world through performance-based logistics.

Lockheed Martin has been ramping up its operations supporting FASI-G by processing more than 1,000 orders and delivering on a growing number of parts. Lockheed Martin's collaboration with small businesses is a key component of FASI-G, with 80% of the program's supplier base coming from that sector.

To support FASI-G's full execution phase, Lockheed Martin opened its new Global Sustainment Command Center in Columbus, Ohio on March 25. "Now fully transitioned into the execution phase, Lockheed Martin's performance on this contract will ensure needed parts reach the right hands on time, every time," said Rich Lockwood, vice president of Lockheed Martin's New Ventures line of business.
