FORWARD OPERATING BASE GAMBERI, Afghanistan - The Afghan National Army’s 201st Corps logistics advisors at Forward Operating Base Gamberi hosted an Afghan National Security Forces logistic conference to provide attendees with a baseline understanding of the Afghan logistical system.

Advisors from across Afghan’s eastern region were in attendance -representatives from the ANA’s 201st Corps, 202nd Shamshod and 6 Forward Support Depot, and Afghan Border Police Zone 1 participated in the two-day conference.

“We hosted about 50 logistics advisors from multiple Task Forces,” said Army Maj. Daniel Powers, logistic advisor for the 201st Corp at FOB Gamberi.

The two-day conference was held to ensure ANSF mentors had a firm grasp of the ANSF logistical systems and processes, while introducing the advisors to ANSF doctrine. The group also shared some logistical lessons learned and best practices in addition to some basic tactics, techniques, and procedures that have proven effective.

“Over the two days there were several classes conducted covering a variety of topics,” said Powers. “We discussed supply request and tracking procedures, the ANA fuels request process, property accountability, equipment fielding procedures, maintenance issues, destroyed vehicle turn-in and winterization procedures.”

The conference proved to be informative.

“All the participants departed the conference with a better understanding of the intricate policies, tactics, techniques and procedures of the ANSF logistical system,” Powers said. This, in turn, should help further advance the U.S. and coalition forces’ efforts to aid the people of Afghan as they work to build a stable and secure future.
