    NAVSUP FLC Pearl Harbor

    Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) Fleet Logistics Center (FLC) Pearl Harbor fulfills the lead logistics role for the duration of the international maritime exercise Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) 2020, Aug. 17-31.

    Executing the mission during the Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is unprecedented. Implementing processes that allow for social distancing and minimize person-to-person contact is imperative.

    “Keeping our personnel safe and moving supplies efficiently in a high demand environment is our duty,” said Cmdr. Mike Sargent, operations director, NAVSUP FLC Pearl Harbor. “To sustain the force, we implemented contactless delivery procedures.”

    To ensure deliveries are safer and more efficient the implementation of contactless delivery procedures commence. Supplies are delivered without coming face-to face with logisticians.

    All hands are on deck to ensure maximum mission partner support as the team delivers fuel to ships and aircraft, mail, provisions, pallets of material and critical parts.

    On sunbaked piers and air fields, and even hundreds of feet below ground in fuel tunnels, supply officers, enlisted logisticians, reservists and civilian employees find themselves safely fulfilling NAVSUP FLC Pearl Harbor’s mission to provide logistics solutions throughout Indo-Pacific to generate and sustain readiness.

    Meeting mission for RIMPAC 2020 requires constant flexibility and interoperability between military branches and nations in order to prepare, plan, and execute the daily missions. By aligning efforts and ideas with other nations, NAVSUP FLC Pearl Harbor builds lasting, trusting relationships, and has further laid the foundation for global prosperity.

    RIMPAC 2020 contributes to the increased lethality, resiliency, and agility needed by the Joint and Combined Force to deter and defeat aggression by major powers across all domains and levels of conflict. RIMPAC 2020 is the 27th exercise in the series that began in 1971.

    NAVSUP FLC Pearl Harbor is one of eight FLCs under Commander, NAVSUP. 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.
