NEW CUMBERLAND, Pa. –
Defense Logistics Agency Distribution provides timely joint storage and distribution services to customers around the globe. In fiscal year 2019, DLA Distribution processed approximately 15.7 million wholesale and 2.8 million retail receipts and issues, supporting customer operations worldwide.
DLA Distribution Susquehanna, Pennsylvania, is one of the 24 distribution centers within DLA and is home to the Eastern Distribution Center, the largest warehouse within the Department of Defense. DDSP occasionally receives erroneous shipments of military equipment and material. When this happens, a team of DLA Installation Management Susquehanna Security and Emergency Services personnel and DDSP personnel spring into action to secure any classified and/or pilferable items that may be contained in the miss-shipment.
In recognition of the team’s stellar security efforts, Army Col. James M. Callis II, commander, DDSP, presented coins to the team March 3 for promptly recognizing a recent miss-shipment and properly securing classified material.
“This is evidence that security is not an oversight,” said Callis. He went on to say that the response of the team is greatly appreciated and is indicative of Defense Distribution Center Susquehanna’ security consciousness and that the efforts of the team positively impact the warfighter every day.
