Gen. Jacqueline D. Van Ovost, US Transportation Command commander, gave the keynote address Oct. 17 at the National Defense Transportation Association-Transcom fall meeting.

“Today, our logistical power continues to be on full display as we balance the rigors of our global mission while ensuring Ukraine receives the assistance necessary to defend its nation. I bet [Russian] President [Vladimir] “Putin would like to have transportation and logistics experts like you,” she told the audience.




















Even before the big Russian invasion of Ukraine at the beginning of this year, TRANSCOM was supplying Ukraine with weapons and equipment that would have a direct impact on the battlefield, Van Ovost pointed out.

Besides Russia, China is another strategic competitor, she said.

TRANSCOM is very aware of the threat China poses to TRANSCOM’s cyber network, and TRANSCOM has taken steps to ensure the network is secure, for example by implementing zero trust, she said.

also, artificial intelligence and machine learning will play a role in the cybersecurity and effective command, control and communications that TRANSCOM requires to integrate and direct its intermodal transportation system, she said.




US Transport Command’s mission is to deliver manpower, materiel and humanitarian aid globally by land, sea and air with speed and scale during peacetime as well as war and this is fully evident with the efficient and effective security assistance flow to Ukraine.

Another threat China poses is the long logistical journey from the United States to the far reaches of the Western Pacific, she said.

With this in mind, TRANSCOM is focused on ensuring a secure and credible logistics gateway now and in the future to Indo-Pacific Command allies and partners, she said.

“To compete effectively, we must have agile, resilient, sustainable and sustainable logistics, all of which lead to delivering lethality… To succeed, we must adopt the mentality that challenged is not synonymous with impossible and challenged is not the same as impenetrable.” “Significant opportunities exist in this environment to leverage our expertise in deploying, maneuvering and sustaining joint forces,” she said.
