TRANSCOM strategic plan will guide deployment and distribution missions.

The commander of the U.S. Transportation Command (TRANSCOM), Air Force General Duncan J. McNabb, has released a new strategic plan that provides guidance for successfully executing TRANSCOM's missions as the Department of Defense's (DOD's) Distribution Process Owner (DPO) and provider of common-user transportation. The plan is designed to ensure that TRANSCOM can meet its vision of synchronizing and delivering unrivaled full-spectrum deployment and distribution solutions to warfighting commanders.

The plan states that TRANSCOM must be governed by two imperatives: supporting full-spectrum global plans and operations and forging a synchronized global DOD supply chain. To implement these imperatives, TRANSCOM must be able to accomplish four strategic actions over the long term:

* Moving the force, which entails delivering forces to the point of need and ensuring sufficient surge capacity for the future.

* Sustaining the force, which requires delivering supplies to the point of need, moving patients rapidly, and enhancing the performance of contractors.

* Operating the Joint Deployment and Distribution Enterprise (JDDE), which involves preserving global access, delivering necessary corporate services (including information technology), and developing a ready JDDE workforce.

* Executing portfolio management, which encompasses balancing logistics requirements and resources, advocating for DOD logistics capabilities, and conducting distribution portfolio management.

To support the command's stakeholders and partners, TRANSCOM must improve its ability to provide logistics support to theater operations, enhance distribution processes, modernize the Defense Transportation System, and conserve energy.
