Yanovich began with a DLA Distribution headquarters command overview, highlighting DLA Distribution’s worldwide network, transportation coordination that the organization provides for all of DLA and specialized functions such as kitting and deployable distribution capabilities.

Following the overview, Yanovich toured the Eastern Distribution Center, part of DLA Distribution Susquehanna and the Department of Defense’s largest warehouse.  Ron Hunziker, DLA Distribution Susquehanna, led Yanovich through the organization’s key locations, including receiving operations, the Consolidation and Containerization Point, the high-rise storage and retrieval system, and the air line of communication pallet build area.

The visit was part of DLA Distribution’s ongoing efforts to partner with warfighting customers to provide efficient, effective, and best value support.
