Organization: NATO
Publication Date: 8 December 2015
Status: active
Page Count: 130
scope:

Logistics as defined in AAP-6, NATO Glossary of Terms and Definitions, is: The science of planning and carrying out the movement and maintenance of forces. In its most comprehensive sense, logistics covers those aspects of military operations that deal with:

a. Design and development, acquisition, storage, transport, distribution, maintenance, evacuation and disposition of materiel,

b. Transport of personnel,

c. Acquisition or construction, maintenance, operation and disposition of facilities,

d. Acquisition or furnishing of services,

e. Medical and health service support1

f. Personnel Management.

Logistics encompass the broad range of sustainment activities across a full spectrum of conflict. Since this document primarily focuses on the operational level land logistic, activities such as design, development, construction, acquisition and disposition of equipment and facilities are only addressed indirectly in this document, namely only if and insofar as these activities play a role during operations. For the purpose of this document the definition of logistics is used in its widest sense to include the personnel, administrative and field services which support the morale and welfare of personnel across a full spectrum of conflict.
