Context. Recent operations in Ukraine have identified that the industrial manufacturing base of a nation is critical to success of future operations. DE&S’ focus is moving away from large procurements to operations and is dependent on putting UK PLC on a campaign footing while the Defence Supply Chain Strategy is looking to create resilience through multiple points of near shore suppliers. The concept of global logistic hubs provides the opportunity for production closer to point of consumption reducing the carbon footprint of distribution while inter regional supply in a star network configuration increase resilience.
