First, the army had clarity of mission and its target.
Second, they relied on real-time predictive intelligence.
Third, they conducted a structural, physical and mental integration of every component of their supply chain.
The structural component is the integration of all forces including allies, partners and support staff.
Second, every unit is ready to physically deploy to any rendezvous as and when they are required.

Therefore, everyone involved in military supply chain needs to think several steps ahead, at all times.
They need to maintain 24/7 mental alertness because in army logistics real-time 24/7 operations is the norm.
Another aspect of the army logistics transformation is partnering with specialist suppliers for certain expertise.
