ECONOMIC INITIATIVES THAT SHAPE MILITARY LOGISTICS

  • Daniela-Elena HRAB

Abstract

In the context of an enhanced competition and of the need to reach the highest objective represented by obtaining the competitive advantage, the following initiatives appeared gradually into the production sector and were implemented into the military scope, in order to gain superiority over possible opponents and to successfully accomplish the missions: Lean Logistics, Procurement Logistics, Distribution Logistics, Six Sigma Logistics, Green Logistics, Emergency/Humanitarian Logistics, Global Logistics, Reverse Logistics and Digital Logistics.

Two of these captured my attention  considering  the effects produced in military logistics of our times, which will continue to generate changes into the future.
