SDDC Western Regional Training Workshop set for 2007.
The dual-track forum focuses on both distribution and deployment to enhance attendees' knowledge of the end-to-end distribution and deployment processes within the defense transportation system. The workshop will also allow functional users of DoD automated systems a forum to identify current issues and generate possible solutions to enhance current processes as well as gather feedback on their experiences working with them.
"The dual-track training will provide DoD shippers a unique and valuable opportunity to maintain functionality in their daily freight operations focusing on routine shipping practices as well as address challenges encountered by the Active and Reserve Components as they deploy," said Brad Bernard, workshop manager for SDDC Operations Support. "The open exchange of ideas and experiences will enhance the attendees' ability to better serve the Warfighter."
To build upon last year's agenda, SDDC workshop planners analyzed last year's critique sheets and solicited input from Service Representatives. Additional topics this year will include SDDC's Transportation Engineering Agency, Transportation Security Agency, Coast Guard/Marine Security, Powertrack and Defense Transportation Coordination Initiative.
In addition, various deployment and distribution functional experts will provide insight and training on a multitude of topical issues and systems. Training sessions emphasizing day-to-day transportation issues such as carrier selection and performance as well as baseline unit move challenges will be highlighted.
The San Antonio workshop's target audience is over 270 DoD installations and activities in the Western United States. The workshop is geared for functional level personnel--Active Duty, Reserve Component, National Guard and DoD civilians--to include installation transportation officers and contractors who work for DoD. Attendees who were unable to attend the SDDC Eastern Regional Training workshop last year in Williamsburg are also encouraged to attend.
