Read on to learn more about how AIT supports specific military logistics and military freight requirements to serve our troops near and far.

What is military logistics or military shipping?

Also known as theater distribution, military shipping logistics management essentially gets the supplies, equipment and materials troops need where they need to be, when they need to be there, in order to support the combatant commander's mission.

To support an ongoing deployment or threat response, strategic, well-executed military logistics—including freight shipping support—is a must. That’s why, for more than four decades, AIT has provided guidance and effective solutions to military supply and logistics decisionmakers, resulting not only in enhanced readiness and combat support, but also time and dollar savings.
