It coordinates material management and distribution of mission critical items including military and commercial repair parts, industrial, medical supplies, tires, and aerial delivery equipment, optimizing all resources with a focus on safety, quality, and continuous process improvement. It serves as the eastern strategic distribution platform for the Department of Defense and primary distribution point for all branches of the U.S. Armed Services, Foreign Military Services, and other Federal agencies in the eastern U.S., and serves as their Consolidation & Containerization Point for transiting supplies to Central & South America, Europe, North Africa, and Southwest Asia.
Home to the largest distribution processing facility in DoD – the 1.7 million square foot Eastern Distribution Center handles 25 percent of DLA Distribution’s total receipt, storage, and issue of materiel worldwide. Susquehanna is the only center that receives, inspects, stages, and consolidates material for U.S. Army Security Assistance Command projects and acts as freight forwarder for Greece, Iraq, and Romania. Susquehanna has been managing the storage and distribution function of DLA Disposition Services collocated at the Mechanicsburg Site since 2014. As the largest DLA Distribution operation supporting the DLA Disposition Services, this initiative yields improved service for DLA customers and lower disposal costs for the DoD.
