Since March 2016 the Central and Eastern European Regions are still a major source of military development and capability building. As allies begin to base troops in the area on a rotational basis it is important to have an efficient logistics mechanism to support them and the host nation forces. As such there needs to be an international standard which all forces need to be brought up to, to allow better integration and provision of services such as engineering, supply chain forecasting, fuel, transport and logistics command and control.

Therefore we are proud to announce the second annual Defence Logistics Eastern Europe conference will be held in Prague from the 7th-8th March. Based on the success of the 2016 conference, which was greatly support by members of the Czech Armed Forces; we aim to enable senior logistics and combat service support representatives from military, international and commercial entities to share and learn from one another in a highly focused environment.
