ABSTRACT
This article reports that using the latest technology, the U.S. Navy has sharply cut the time it took to move supplies into the Persian Gulf region from what it was during the 1991 Gulf War. Relational logistics databases allow the naval fleets to track inventories and the movement of supplies on ships at sea, in warehouses spread throughout the region and at Navy and Defense Logistics Agency supply depots in the United States. As a result, fleets have cut the time it takes for supplies to get into the region stretching from the Horn of Africa through the Persian Gulf from 30 days to 10 days.
