MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (NNS) -- Effective April 1, Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) disestablished NAVSUP Global Logistics Support (NAVSUP GLS). Functions performed by NAVSUP GLS have been realigned to NAVSUP Headquarters in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. 

By realigning functions to NAVSUP Headquarters and disestablishing NAVSUP GLS, NAVSUP removed an intermediate layer of command. Ultimately, realignment of the NAVSUP organization will improve command oversight and customer alignment, flattening the organization and delivering efficiencies that will enable faster support and greater accountability, as the Navy strives to maintain its competitive advantage globally.

NAVSUP GLS, an Echelon III command located in San Diego, was established in 2006 and originally named Commander, Fleet and Industrial Supply Centers (COMFISCS). The command provided oversight monitoring of waterfront support performance; oversight management of NAVSUP Fleet Logistics Center (FLC) operations, including contracting, fuels, global logistics services, hazardous material management, household goods movement support, integrated logistics support, material management, postal operations, regional transportation, warehousing, logistics operations, and ammunition; and oversight management of base supply support for Navy installations worldwide.

On the occasion of the closing, NAVSUP Commander Rear Adm. Jonathan A. Yuen said, "Over its short history, NAVSUP GLS established a proud tradition of service, and those associated with the command worked in earnest to put the fleet first. They managed a diverse portfolio of services that were critical enablers for our customers."

As part of the realignment, eight NAVSUP fleet logistics centers have been designated as Echelon III commands, reporting directly to NAVSUP Headquarters. Additionally, NAVSUP Ammunition Logistics Center and Naval Petroleum Office were realigned from NAVSUP GLS to NAVSUP Headquarters. The end result of the realignment is a flatter NAVSUP organization, better suited to provide comprehensive and tailored support to the Navy and joint warfighter.

Headquartered in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, and employing a diverse, worldwide workforce of more than 22,500 military and civilian personnel, NAVSUP's mission is to provide supplies, services, and quality-of-life support to the Navy and joint warfighter.
