The 35th Annual National Logistics Forum scheduled to take place November 12-14 has been cancelled. New dates are pending and will be announced in the future. Should you have questions, please contact Andrea Lane at   

The purpose of the 35th Annual National Logistics Forum is to provide the opportunity for industry and government stakeholders to engage in candid dialogue about the issues and challenges of maintaining global military readiness and to place and sustain forces anywhere necessary in the world. The theme, Logistics in an Age of Great Power Competition, reflects the increasingly critical role of readiness and sustainment when facing the rise of near-peer competitors.

This year, the Forum will be attended by logistics directors from the Combatant Commands, the Military Services, and support agencies. There will be more than 300 senior defense professionals from government, industry, and the Services in attendance at the Forum.

*Please note: This event is open to the press. Please view our Media Guidelines for more information.


About the Logistics Management Division

The Logistics Division maintains a regular dialogue with the senior leadership of the Defense community. Its mission is to address the logistics role in projecting global power in a constantly changing world. Your presence would send a strong message that the Defense logistics community, which represents a very large portion of the annual Defense budget, is critical to our national defense.

Maintaining military readiness in the face of rapidly changing threats and declining state-of-force availability requires innovation. We will assess logistics support to the warfighter based on present and future constraints in the coming years.


The NDIA has a policy of strict compliance with federal and state antitrust laws. The antitrust laws prohibit competitors from engaging in actions that could result in an unreasonable restraint of trade. Consequently, NDIA members must avoid discussing certain topics when they are together – both at formal association membership, board, committee, and other meetings and in informal contacts with other industry members: prices, fees, rates, profit margins, or other terms or conditions of sale (including allowances, credit terms, and warranties); allocation of markets or customers or division of territories; or refusals to deal with or boycotts of suppliers, customers or other third parties, or topics that may lead participants not to deal with a particular supplier, customer or third party.
