U.S. Marine Corps
LVI has supported the Marine Corps Logistics Command's (MARCORLOGCOM) Consolidated Storage Program (CSP) since its first contract award in December 2000 when the Marine Corps began consolidation of its Individual Combat Equipment (ICE) and Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and High Yield Explosives (CBRNE) Equipment. By implementing a sound inventory management methodology and information management systems, along with providing strong personnel conducting efficient warehouse operations, LVI has produced significant savings in sustainment spending for the Marine Corps.
Supporting the Marine Corps operating forces worldwide with Total Asset Visibility, LVI actively manages over 480 National Stock Number (NSN) items in inventory approaching $1B in assets. Inventory accuracy increased from 80% to 99.9998% with LVI taking financial accountability of the value chain for ICE assets, and issue effectiveness has increased to 99.97%, both meet or exceed Lean Six-Sigma world class performance levels.
Utilizing empowered regional managers, LVI currently operates 17 Individual Issue Facilities (IIFs) in CONUS and Japan, managing ICE and individual CBRNE gear, compared to 281 Control Points prior to consolidation, and with uniformed personnel reductions estimated at 40%. Individual and unit equipment issue times have dropped dramatically with Unit Deployment Program (UDP) issue times decreasing from 10 to 1.5 days. The laundry and asset repair and refurbish capabilities provided by LVI have extended asset service life with approximately $35M replacement value of items repaired annually.
With warfighter readiness always in focus, LVI provides a demonstrated capability aligned to a strategic Marine Corps' Total Life Cycle Management (TLCM) view.
