The Federal Logistics Information System (FLIS) forms the foundation for all logistics information systems. It is the catalog of more than fifteen million Supply Items used by the United States Government and North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) partners. Federal Logistics (FED LOG) data provides the ability to access and download FLIS data for use when internet connectivity is not available. FED LOG provides essential information about supply items to include the National Stock Number (NSN), the Approved Item Name, Manufacturers and Distributors information (to include Part Numbers), Freight Data, Hazardous Materiel Indicators, Interchangeable and Substitutable data, Acquisition Advice Code (AAC) and Unit Price, Physical and Performance Characteristics along with service specific management data.

FED LOG is available as a free downloadable product using FedMall and is available in ‘Complete’ or ‘Lite’ versions. The lite version is about half the size of the complete version, so it downloads quicker. FED LOG is published monthly and a product which is restricted Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) and available to NATO and NATO Sponsored Countries, Federal and Civilian Agencies, Government contractors and Department of Defense.

FED LOG is used by logisticians, engineering support activities, provisioning, procurement/contracting, supply, maintenance, distribution, storage, transportation, quality assurance and disposal personnel to retrieve key elements and management data from routine daily research to weapons system support analysis.

FED LOG Queries:

FED LOG offers two powerful search options to maximize logistics data research capabilities.

  • Interactive Search will search FLIS and service unique data using the National Stock Number (NSN), part numbers, supplier, item name, characteristics data, Federal Supply Class (FSC), Item Name Code (INC) or CAGE Code
  • Batch Search allows the user to process multiple queries and search options and run them simultaneously

Internal Research Links:

Links within FED LOG allows the users with internet access the ability to access WebFLIS for real time data, FedMall for procurement options, ASSIST which provides DOD prepared documents (MIL-SPEC/MIL STD) information, MEDALS (access to engineering data asset locator) along with Manufacturer and Suppliers data.

How can FED LOG help in your logistics research?

  • Search for an item based on key characteristic attributes (what it looks like, what it is made of, and other descriptive information)
  • Obtain management data for procurement, requisition, storage, logistical, and management decision usage
  • Determine freight standards
  • Cross-reference part numbers and stock numbers
  • Create batch searches and run large amounts of data
  • Customize data to meet specific requirements
  • Identify manufactures and distributors
  • Obtain service-unique logistic information, for example
    • Army Master Data File (AMDF)
    • Navy Item Control Number (NICN)
    • Marine Corps Master Header Information File (MHIF)
