NEW CUMBERLAND, Pa. –
Defense Logistics Agency Distribution San Diego, California, welcomed Navy Rear Adm. Matt Ott III, deputy chief of staff for Fleet Ordnance and Supply, U.S. Fleet Forces Command, as he visited staff and toured the distribution center March 11.
The purpose of the visit was to explore DLA Distribution San Diego’s ‘process excellence’ and regional footprint.
Navy Capt. Kerri Yarbrough, commander of DDDC, and team, provided an overview of the center’s mission and offered insight on performance metric and continuous process improvement initiatives, highlighting focused lines of effort.
“Defense Logistics Agency Distribution San Diego has had significant turnover since contract transition in September and it was great to showcase the significant strides the team continues to deliver day in and day out,” said Yarbrough.
During the brief and tour, Ott offered fleet level support and guidance whilst recognizing the hard work and mission impact DLA has on the waterfront.
“It’s about independent mission command; the value, trust and confidence you need in order to follow through on those rules of engagement; this team executes that every day,” said Ott.
