Land and Maritime was the first Inventory Control Point (ICP) in DLA to develop a weapon systems approach toward materiel management. Weapon systems management is now standard procedure in DLA, and Land and Maritime is the Lead ICP for Land, Maritime and Missile weapons systems. DLA Land and Maritime’s mission is to provide worldwide logistical support to its customers - the Military Services. Land and Maritime directly supports Navy Surface and Subsurface, and Army and Marine Corps customers through dedicated customer relations while working with numerous suppliers to fulfill requirements for assigned stock classes across the DoD. Furthermore, DLA Land and Maritime provides logistical services directly to Navy shipyards and Army/USMC industrial sites.
DLA Land and Maritime continues to grow in its pursuit of better, faster, lower-cost combat logistics support to the warfighters of all Services. It has taken on a role of end-to-end supply chain management, rather than that of a wholesale manager. In managing the entire supply chain, DLA Land and Maritime partners with customers and suppliers to improve overall warfighter support.
DLA Land and Maritime is located on the Defense Supply Center Columbus installation, a one-square-mile installation that shares the boundaries of two central Ohio cities-Columbus and Whitehall. DSCC is a unique installation that capitalizes on the synergy of state, federal and defense organizations such as the Ohio National Guard and U.S. Army Reserve, the Veterans Administration Clinic, the Defense Finance and Accounting Service and Defense Information Services Agency, which are collocated on or adjacent to the site.
