Gen. Duncan McNabb delivers keynote remarks at NDTA Forum


PHOENIX – Air Force Gen. Duncan J. McNabb spoke to more than 1,000 people from 50 organizations around the globe, including government and non-governmental agencies, members of the military, industry and academia, yesterday here at the 2011 National Defense Transportation Association Forum and Expo. He underscored the importance of military-commercial partnerships saying, “There’s nothing like it… [we] couldn’t do our job without you.”


McNabb, commander of the U.S. Transportation Command, based at Scott Air Force Base, Ill., thanked commercial industry for their contributions to the Department of Defense’s logistics effort and highlighted their involvement in creating a strong global transportation system.


He said the past decade has challenged the American military and its logistics experts, and he underscored the importance of partnerships between government and industry as they work together to deliver for the warfighter.


McNabb said the partnership between USTRANSCOM and commercial industry is a key component of the global logistics system supporting the American military. “You are always ready and eager to tackle any challenge with ingenuity; keeping supply lines open to support our troops,” he said. NDTA hosts this annual forum to provide an opportunity for military and commercial logistics experts and practitioners to address common issues and complex logistical challenges.
