The U.S. Military is one of the most strictly-regulated entities in the world. From basic oil servicing to nuclear weapons and down to every single screw on a weapons system, everything that goes on in military aviation (and every other aspect of military operations) is detailed. A critical part of every military aviation unit is the supply chain, and how parts are delivered matters—a lot. The interesting thing about logistics is how modern logistics came about and how the military completely revolutionized it. World War II was the conduit that changed everything. It has been said that America’s logistics ultimately won the war, which is not an exaggeration. The Axis powers had, in many ways, superior weapons to ours, but we learned to deliver in such vast and rapid quantities that they could never keep up.
Modern shipping, including the standard shipping containers we see on intermodal trains, are an extension of the lessons learned from World War II. In short, the military takes its logistics very seriously. As a contractor to many DOD projects,/Greenwood Aerospace has the expertise to ensure all components and parts are shipped according to the exacting and precise criteria laid out in MIL-STD-2073-1.
Since the military operates all over the globe, parts are constantly being shipped. And since the DOD works with over half a million contractors, the military needs a standardized method of ensuring that parts are shipped correctly. Why:
These aren’t the only reasons why the DOD standardizes packaging, but they are among the most important. We understand these measures and have a long track record of delivering high-quality MIL-SPEC packaged components to our customers. With national security at stake, we undertake MIL-SPEC packaging with rigorous consideration. Our team ensures proper packaging, containment, labeling, and handling before every military shipment.
