NATO Logistics Handbook

INTRODUCTION
“According to an old military adage ‘Amateurs talk about strategy, generals talk about logistics’.” - George J. Church, 1990 Ths Handbook, publshed under the auspces of the Senor NATO Logstcans’ Conference (SNLC), s ntended as a smple gude to logstcs n NATO. It does not attempt to examne current ssues or provde answers to the problems that logstcans wll face, but t rather ams at ntroducng them to some of the basc prncples, polces, concepts and organsatons wth whch they wll work. Ths s the first update of the Handbook snce 1997. Snce then, NATO and the securty envronment n whch t must operate have undergone profound changes. The logstc support concepts that are requred to ensure the deployablty and sustanablty of NATO forces have changed as well, bearng lttle semblance to those extant n 1997. These new concepts have been reflected n ths new edton. The Allance s an organsaton that contnues to evolve to meet emergng securty challenges and NATO logstc polces and concepts wll need keep pace. Therefore, the contnung usefulness of the Handbook wll depend on the regularty of ts updatng, whch wll be an ongong process. If any reader has suggestons for ts mprovement or amendment, he s asked to forward them to the SNLC Secretarat. The NATO Logstcs Handbook s not a formally agreed document, and should not be quoted as a reference. It does not necessarly represent the offical opnon or poston of NATO, the natons, commands or agences on all the polcy ssues dscussed.

FUNDAMENTALS OF NATO LOGISTICS “I don’t know what the hell this ‘logistics’ is … but I want some of it!” - Fleet Admiral Ernest J. King, 1942 INTRODUCTION Durng the Cold War, NATO followed the prncple that logstcs was a natonal responsblty. Accordngly, ts only focus at that tme was the establshment of and complance wth overall logstcs requrements. Ths prncple governed NATO’s plans and actons untl the begnnng of the 1990’s, when t was understood and accepted that the strategc stuaton that had underpnned ths prncple had undergone a fundamental change. As early as n January 1996, NATO logstcans recognsed the new challenges facng the Allance. In partcular, the downszng of mltary resources underscored the necessty of ncreased co-operaton and multnatonalty n logstc support. These new challenges requred the Allance to be able to logstcally sustan and operate n non-artcle 5 / Crss Response Operatons (CRO), possbly at a far dstance from the supportng natonal logstc and ndustral bases and on non NATO sol, where a supportve or functonng host naton was not exstent. All of ths needed to be performed under the legal condtons of peace, wth no access to moblsaton and/or emergency legslaton. Addtonally, there was the need to ntegrate non-NATO mltary forces and ther logstc support. The Senor NATO Logstcans’ Conference (SNLC), as the Allance’s senor body on logstcs, then undertook to translate the Allance’s New Strategc Concept nto responsve, flexble and nteroperable logstc prncples and polces. In ths regard, t first developed a vson for NATO logstcs amed at addressng the challenge of developng collectve responsblty n logstcs between NATO and the natons. Such collectve responsblty s attaned through close co-ordnaton and co operaton between natonal and NATO authortes durng both plannng and executon, and ncludes greater consderaton of the efficent use of cvl resources. As a result of ther experences n NATO led operatons, natons have ganed an apprecaton of the value of a collectve approach to logstc support and have lent ther ardent support to the mplementaton of ths vson. Whle NATO s responsble for co-ordnatng and prortsng the provson of logstc support to deployed NATO forces, each naton s responsble for ensurng, ether ndvdually or through co-operatve arrangements, the provson of the logstc resources requred to support ts own forces. Co-ordnated logstc plannng s therefore an essental aspect of the efficent and economcal use of resources throughout ther lfe cycle, from ntal desgn to ther ultmate dsposal.

DEFINITIONS Vewed from the lfe cycle perspectve, logstcs s the brdge between the deployed forces and the ndustral base that produces the weapons and materel that the forces need to accomplsh ther msson. NATO therefore defines logstcs as: « Logistics: The scence of plannng and carryng out the movement and mantenance of forces. In ts most comprehensve sense, the aspects of mltary operatons whch deal wth: - esgn and development, acquston, storage, transport, dstrbuton, d mantenance, evacuaton and dsposal of materel1; - transport of personnel; - cquston or constructon, mantenance, operaton and dsposton of a facltes; - acquston or furnshng of servces; and - medcal and health servce support.»

Ths definton covers a wde range of responsbltes that nclude a number of dfferent domans of work wthn NATO. If one consders that logstcs comprses both the buldng up of stocks and capabltes and the sustanment of weapons and forces, then t s clear that a dstncton can be made between three mportant aspects of logstcs, spannng the lfe cycle of logstc resources: producton, n servce support and consumpton. The followng defintons of these aspects enjoy wdespread acceptance wthn the NATO logstcs communty: “ Production Logistics (also known as: acquisition logistics): that part of logstcs concernng research, desgn, development, manufacture and acceptance of materel. In consequence, producton logstcs ncludes: standardsaton and nteroperablty, contractng, qualty assurance, procurement of spares, relablty and defence analyss, safety standards for equpment, specficatons and producton processes, trals and testng (ncludng provson of necessary facltes), codficaton, equpment documentaton, configuraton control and modficatons. At NATO Headquarters the lead authortes are the Internatonal Staff (IS) Defence Investment Dvson (DI) and the Armaments Branch of the Logstcs and Resources Dvson (L&R) n the Internatonal Mltary Staff (IMS). The Conference of Natonal Armaments Drectors (CNAD) s the senor NATO commttee that s prncpally responsble for the co-ordnaton of ths aspect of logstcs.” “ In-Service Logistics: that part of logstcs that brdges producton and consumer logstcs and comprses those functons assocated wth procurng, recevng, storng, dstrbutng and dsposng of materel that s requred to mantan the equpment and supply the force. The NATO Mantenance and Supply Organsaton (NAMSO) s the prncpal NATO organsaton responsble for ths area.”
Materiel: equipment in its widest sense including vehicles, weapons, ammunition, fuel, etc.

Wth the rsk now omndrectonal. there are two addtonal aspects that have to do wth the way n whch logstcs functons are performed. crss and wartme logstcs support.

As the NAC has recognsed a collectve responsblty between NATO and natonal authortes for logstc support n the context of multnatonal operatons, NAMSO may provde logstcs support to ts member states and to groups of some or all of those states. Twenty five member states partcpate n NAMSO actvtes5. The NAC has also authorsed NAMSO to conclude Memoranda of Understandng (MOU) wth PfP natons for co-operatve logstc support. To accomplsh ts msson, NAMSA carres out functons of logstcs management, whch can be performed more effectvely by the Agency than by the natons themselves. Ths often means logstcs functons common to several states. Inter ala, these nclude (common) procurement, supply, mantenance and repar, configuraton management and techncal support for equpment/ weapon systems. NAMSA offers a wde range of logstcs servce actvtes whch nclude codficaton, management of common lne tems (NATO Logstcs Stock Exchange), contractng for transportaton of personnel and materel, managng demltarsaton actvtes such as projects for the dsposal of weapons and mnes,

Ths last area of support contnues to expand to the benefit of NATO and troop contrbutng natons. As NAMSA s a customer-funded entty, those requestng a servce from the Agency are responsble for the full costs of the servce requested. The majorty of NAMSA’s workforce of around 950 s located n Capellen (Luxembourg). There s also the Southern Operatonal Centre, strategcally located n Taranto (Italy) and the NATO’s HAWK Logstcs Management staff at Ruel-Malmason, Pars (France). NAMSA produces the NATO Ammunton Data Base on a CD-ROM, whch consttutes an authortatve source of NATO ammunton nterchangeablty, techncal and logstc nformaton. It also provdes a DVD wth the NATO Master Catalogue of References for Logstcs wth NATO Stock Numbers (NSNs), part numbers and nformaton about manufacturers and vendors and manages the NATO Malbox System, whch allows transfer of data among member states. Further detals on ths subject are provded n Chapter 14. Central European Pipeline Management Organisation (CEPMO) CEPMO s the management organsaton for the Central Europe Ppelne System (CEPS) and s one of the NATO Producton and Logstcs Organsatons (NPLO). CEPS s the largest element of the NATO Ppelne System (NPS) that encompasses NATO assets for the movement, storage and delvery of fuel n Belgum, France, Germany, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. These are known as the host natons, wth the Unted States desgnated as a user naton. Collectvely, the host and user natons comprse the Member Natons. CEPS s desgned and managed to meet operatonal requrements n central Europe n peace, crss and conflct tmes, but s also used commercally under strct safeguards. The day to day operaton of CEPS s the task of the Central Europe Ppelne Management Agency (CEPMA) located n Versalles (France).

The Concept confirms that the Allance’s essental and endurng purpose s to safeguard the freedom and securty of ts members by poltcal and mltary means. The strategy calls for the contnued development of the mltary capabltes needed for the full range of the Allance’s mssons. The Concept sets out the Allance’s Approach to Securty n the 21st Century. It defines the Allance’s fundamental securty tasks. The new Strategc Concept provdes overall gudance for the development of detaled polces and mltary plans.. The new Strategc Concept comprses the followng essental elements: - the preservaton of the transatlantc lnk. from collectve defence to peace support and other crss response operatons. and - he development of the European Securty and Defence Identty wthn t the Allance. - the mantenance of effectve mltary capabltes.

NATO standardsaton also adds a poltcal value as an outward demonstraton of co operaton and soldarty. —55— . Therefore. the SNLC and others as requred. the Alles wll enhance ther capablty to perform the whole range of NATO tasks and mssons. the NATO Ar Defence Commttee (NADC). n ascendng order. should be made n the field of standardsaton. The levels of standardsaton are. Partnershp for Peace (PfP) and NATO’s enlargement wll necesstate clearly defined standardsaton parameters and wll requre an approprate level of standardsaton to allow collaboratve operatons. whch s an automated tool contanng key Allance Standardzaton R(ASRs)requrements and selected objectves for Allance standardsaton objectves.

Implementaton s then revewed n PARP Assessment. Principles of NATO Standardisation The followng prncples gude the applcaton of NATO Standardsaton: - General lliance Objectives. Standardsaton s not an end n tself. - Harmonisation of standardisation with NATO defence planning. SCs and Senor NATO Commttees through the NATO Standardsaton Organsaton. Natons should acheve the levels of standardsaton ndcated n the Standardsaton Requrement. nterchangeablty and commonalty. and specfically from the Allance Strategc Concept and the Mnsteral Gudance for defence plannng actvtes n NATO. n ascendng order. - Attainment of standardisation level. compatblty. Unty of effort s enhanced by harmonsaton and co o ordnaton of standardsaton actvtes wth Natons. - ational commitment. In prncple standardsaton s voluntary N for natons that shall mplement standards as applcable and to the maxmum possble extent. A The need for standardsaton s derved from the overall poltcal objectves of the North Atlantc Treaty. Only when no applcable cvl standard s avalable. The levels of standardsaton are. force plannng s a key focus for the standardsaton process through the force goals and defence revew cycles. mprovng thereby efficency n the use of avalable resources. Feedback on fulfilment of Standardsaton Requrements and F mplementaton of Standardsaton Agreements s an essental part of the standardsaton process. - Use f civil standards. the achevement of NATO standardsaton s hghly dependent on the poltcal wll of the Alles to commt themselves to the necessary efforts. nteroperablty.

Top-down standardsaton comprses 4 phases: Phase 1: Identficaton. Producton and the Updatng of NATO Standardsaton Agreements and Alled Publcatons. Top-down Allance Standardsaton Requrements. The NSP s the Allance’s management tool for standardsaton actvtes. Steps within the process.

NATO standards are normally classfied nto one of three man areas as follows. - Implementing agreed NATO standards as a matter of national policy. although some standards may apply to more than one area: - Operational tandards are those standards whch affect future and/ s or current mltary practce. Formulaton of NATO standards can best be accomplshed by multnatonal bodes of natonal experts. - Ratifying NATO standards by Nations individually. Partner natons can adopt NATO standards as a goal for mplementaton. The formulatng or updatng of NATO standards s nherently nternatonal n character and hence must be co ordnated nternatonally n the approprate NATO bodes.

Logstc support must be proactve. Natons and NATO authortes have a collectve responsblty for the logstc support of the Allance’s multnatonal operatons. The same should apply for non-NATO Commanders of multnatonal forces partcpatng n a NATO led operaton. The responsblty assgned to any NATO Commander must be matched wth the delegaton of authorty by natons and NATO to allow the adequate dscharge of responsbltes. thereby contrbutng to the operatonal success.

even when partcpatng natons rely solely on natonal logstcs. natons retan control over ther own resources. LOGISTICS POLICIES General Logstc support should be provded by balancng the peacetme provson and locatons of logstc assets and conflct consumables wth the ablty to re supply and renforce to ensure tmely and contnuous support. natons have the ultmate responsblty for equppng ther forces and for ensurng. Specific “technical agreements” are normally established between ACO and CHOD FR on the hand-over conditions of these units to NATO. Wthn ths context. Lastly. n close co-operaton wth natons. The NATO Commander s responsble for establshng the logstc requrements for all phases of an operaton. NSEs will not provide reports unless specific arrangements have been established. French formations retained as part of the NRF or High Readiness Forces are submitted to the normal process of certification. The NATO Commander also co-ordnates support among contrbutng natons and wth the host naton and retans the responsblty for co ordnatng the overall logstc effort. 15) Regarding preliminary inspection and control (“certification”). and for the co-ordnaton of logstc plannng and support wthn hs area of responsblty. The NATO Commander assumes control of commonly provded resources as drected and s responsble for ther logstc support. Broader authority is not accepted unless special arrangements are in-place.

Natons are responsble for ensurng that those unts and formatons assgned to NATO are properly supported by an effectve and efficent msson talored logstc structure. and to effectvely employ logstc assets wthn the Jont Operatons Area (JOA). FR will report on the situation of units within the multinational chain of command or performing multinational general support (e. Visibility and Transparency.

A raft of enablng ntatves underpns the NRF’s early rotatons. Capabltes are assgned to the NRF through a rotaton cycle. It s mportant to understand that the Jont Force Command (JFC) selects the forces requred and talors them to the specfic msson at hand. However. wth a vew to provdng natons wth an ndcaton on the type and scale of forces and the capabltes requred: t s the drver for transformaton.

Establshng ths capablty based on the MJLC as a core nucleus becomes a vtal step n the mplementaton of MC 526. A natural consequence s the utlzaton of multnatonal logstcs solutons thereby reducng Natonal Support Elements (NSEs). n Kosovo. the logstc footprnt represents just over 50% of the troops on the ground. One of the key tenets s the NATO Commander beng able to control the logstc assets. so that he s able to redrect logstc resources to best sut hs operatonal msson. enhanced jontness and mproved vsblty over theatre level logstc assets. A key feature of MC 526 s ntegrated logstcs wth the man pllars defined as unty of logstc command. Most mltary operatons today wll be jont. Although natons fully support MC 526 and acknowledge the logstc operatonal advantages and the sgnficant ncreased efficency that t may brng. The mplementaton of MC 526 s the man effort n the ongong transformaton of NATO logstc wthn Alled Command Operatons (ACO) and ts success s consdered as a prerequste to multnatonal logstcs n NATO operatons.e. —96— .

The NRF Logstc Concept offers the natons a real potental for resource savngs. The SCs have developed the MJLC Doctrne n order to assume the enhanced logstc authortes and responsbltes of NATO Commanders and to enable NATO headquarters at the dfferent levels of command to properly co-ordnate the logstc support wthn ther area of responsblty. Ths apples not only to the number of exstng or emergng multnatonal unts but also to the deeper multnatonal ntegraton at lower levels of command.

The full mplementaton of MC 526 has two fundamental phases: - hase 1: the establshment and tranng of a certfied JLSG HQ. tranng and certficaton of NRF unts and hgh readness tmelnes are key. capactes and flexblty of NATO medcal unts are beng ncorporated n the NATO force plannng cycle. The JLSG HQ then becomes the most crtcal enabler n promotng ths ntatve. the logstc support system and structures also needed to be adapted to that process. Phase 2 requres the efforts of both JFCs and natons. Ths s the operatonal drver for a more ntegrated and multnatonal logstc construct. An NRF Medcal Support Concept (MC 551) has been developed n lne wth the requrements set by MC 477 and MC 526.

HNS PRINCIPLES1 The requred moblty. negotated at the hghest level between SN and/or NATO and the HN authortes. It provdes the mutually agreed mltary-poltcal-legal bass for the development of further mplementng documents wthn the agreed provsons emboded n the MOU. whch mples an ntent or responsblty to support alled forces and organsatons. Moreover. To ths end. In order to realse consstent and effectve HNS plannng and executon. Ths may not be possble n regard to many natons. A Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA). In these cases. It may contan general provsons regardng support from the HN. An MOU s an nstrument to record n a less formal manner specfic understandngs and oblgatons and s an expresson of the concurrng wllngness of the partes partcpatng n and subscrbng to t. Therefore. n regons where NATO deployments may occur. the SCs have mplemented a programme to negotate standng HNS Memorandum of Understandng (MOU) wth NATO and PfP Natons. The goal s to use NATO HNS arrangements to the greatest extent possble to facltate the negotaton and admnstraton tasks of the HN by creatng a standard process and standard documents that can be used by all partes. a Transt Agreement wll be concluded between NATO HQ and the HN to authorse the transt of alled forces and goods through the HN’s terrtory. one must be concluded wth the utmost prorty. Where a SOFA wth a HN does not exst. Ths does not preclude blateral arrangements between partes. Natons and NATO authortes have a collectve responsblty for HNS across the spectrum of NATO-led operatons. where t exsts. The Transt Agreement wll nclude some provsons that make reference to the support needed from the HN and n some cases may permt the development of HNS Techncal Arrangements wthout development of an MOU. the ncreasng requrement to take advantage of economes of scale and to more rapdly and effectvely mplement responsve support concepts dctates that HNS be consdered as an ntegral part of the logstc plannng process and should therefore be addressed n all support plans.

IN-SERVICE LOGISTICS “Understand that the foundation of an army is the belly. It is necessary to procure nourishment for the soldier wherever you assemble him and whenever you wish to conduct him.” - Frederick II of Prussia, 1747 INTRODUCTION In-Servce Logstcs s closely related to Producton Logstcs and s an ntegral part of the System Lfe Cycle Management (SLCM). Although n servce support relates to those actvtes requred to assure that weapon system/ equpment s avalable and fit for use, t actually begns wth the decson to brng the new system nto the nventory. In servce logstc plannng starts at the outset of a system desgn. It s crtcal to determne the mantenance and support concepts as early as possble because approxmately 60% to 80% of a defence system’s Total Ownershp Cost (TOC) occur after that system s put nto operaton. More mportantly, the magntude of that cost s determned durng the desgn and development phase. For these reasons, the mantenance and support concepts need to be determned up front. Ths concept s known as Integrated Logstc Support. Integrated Logistic Support (ILS) ILS s the delberate ntegraton of systems/equpment logstc support consderatons nto the system lfe cycle management durng the outset of the programme/project. ILS prescrbes that all elements of logstc support be planned, acqured, tested and provded n a tmely and cost-effectve manner. NATO polcy specfics that all financal and other resources requred to mantan operatonal avalablty receve equal emphass as those requred to acheve performance objectves and tmely equpment delvery. The SNLC developed ALP-10 on Integrated Logstc Support n 1991 to support the Allance’s ambton. ILS s structured around the lfecycle management model detaled n the Phased Armaments Programmng System (PAPS – see chapter 13). Ths model portrays the total lfe span of a system, commencng wth msson-need evaluaton and extends through the n-servce phase to ts eventual dsengagement. The model apples to both common and jontly funded projects. Logistic Support Analysis (LSA) LSA s a structured process ntended to define, analyse and quantfy logstc support requrements and to nfluence desgn for supportablty, throughout system development. LSA stresses smplcty by dentfyng an optmal level of logstc requrements. The objectve of LSA s to enable optmum system performance and avalablty at mnmum lfe cycle cost. LSA s conducted on an nteractve bass throughout the acquston cycle through the use of studes, trade-offs, servce advce and test and evaluaton leadng to successve desgn refinement.

CHAPTER 14

Durng desgn, the analyss s orented towards assstng the desgn engneerng n ncorporatng logstc requrements nto equpment desgn. Ths ncludes ncorporaton of key logstc-related desgn objectves, relablty, mantanablty and testablty. As the project progresses, the LSA process concentrates on provdng detaled descrptons of specfic resources requred to support a system throughout ts n-servce phase by provdng tmely vald data for all areas of ILS. That data s used to plan, acqure and poston support resources (personnel, fundng and materel) to ensure that deployed systems meet ther avalablty requrements. Durng the later producton and n-servce phases of the project, feedback data are used to revew the contnung valdty of data to ensure that Lfe Cycle Cost (LCC) plans are beng realsed. Life Cycle Costing (LCC) LCC s the total sum of drect, ndrect, recurrng, non-recurrng and other related costs ncurred, or estmated to be ncurred, n the desgn, development, producton, operatons, mantenance and support of a major system over ts antcpated lfe span. LCC analyss s an teratve process that starts at the begnnng of the programme/project lfe cycle and contnues throughout the lfe cycle of the system. NATO PRODUCTION AND LOGISTIC ORGANISATIONS (NPLO) An NPLO s a subsdary body created wthn the framework of NATO for the mplementaton of tasks arsng out of the Treaty, and to whch the North Atlantc Councl (NAC) grants organsatonal, admnstratve and financal ndependence. The NPLO s establshed wth a vew to meetng, to the best advantage, the collectve requrements of partcpatng natons n relevant fields of desgn and development, producton, operatonal logstc support and management under the condtons agreed n ts Charter. An NPLO s open to all NATO natons who become member states by sgnng the Memorandum of Understandng (MOU). An NPLO normally conssts of: - Board of Drectors (BOD), n some cases called a Steerng Commttee a (SC), s the governng body actng wth regard to the collectve nterests of member natons. The representatves of each member naton represent ther naton’s poltcal, mltary, economc, financal and techncal nterests and fully partcpate n the BODs decson-makng process; - ubordnate commttee(s) establshed by the BOD as requred; and s - n Agency that s the executve managng body under the authorty of a a General Manager.
