The annual conference – recognized as the premier event for the tactical wheeled vehicle industry – brings together leaders from the Department of Defense, the military services, industry, prime contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, and academia to address present and future requirements of tactical wheeled vehicles. This year, discussions will focus on multi-service modernization and sustainment goals for 2030.

Atkins will discuss DLA Land and Maritime’s critical role in serving and supporting warfighter readiness.

The organization has 2,600 civilian and military personnel based in 30 locations across the United States including DLA Depot Level Reparable detachments, Marine Corps industrial sites and detachments supporting U.S. Navy shipyards. It is the U.S. military’s integrated material manager for 2.5 million spare and repair parts supporting more than 2,000 multiservice weapon systems and the warfighters who rely on them.

Atkins also commands the Defense Supply Center Columbus, a Central Ohio logistics hub home to 31 tenant organizations including the Defense Finance and Accounting Service – Columbus, Navy Talent Acquisition Group, the Ohio Army National Guard’s Regional Training Institute, and units with the OARNG and U.S. Army Reserve.
