In FY 2009, the DoD spent $4 billion to move troops and materiel into Afghanistan, a mountainous, arid, land-locked country with few roads, no railway, and only four airports. In Dec. 2009, the Pres. announced that an additional 30,000 U.S. troops will be sent to Afghanistan by August 2010. This testimony reviews DoD's logistics efforts supporting operations in Afghanistan, including: (1) the org. involved and routes and methods used to transport supplies and equip. into and around Afghanistan; (2) steps DoD has taken to improve its distribution process, based on lessons learned from prior operations; and (3) challenges affecting DoD's ability to distribute supplies and equipment within Afghanistan, and its efforts to mitigate them.
