Forward Presence Teams

Forward Presence Teams are the front lines of DLA Land and Maritime operations and consist of customer support representatives, customer logistics site specialists and acquisition personnel.

The teams provide direct DLA representation to their forward presence locations and answer queries about DLA managed material and processes. The teams solve unique and systemic supply chain issues through causative research and collaboration resulting in order fulfillment.

Teams train individual customer logisticians on the use of logistics information technologies, providing the tools to improve unit readiness and solve issues within their own supply chains.

Additionally, teams advise unit commanders and staffs on the DLA enterprise so they can leverage DLA capabilities in support of their plans, policies, training and operations.
