Logistics is the set of operations that are intended to provide everything, from meeting the basic needs to live, move, fight and for the treatment and evacuation of personnel. It strikes a balance between the place, time and quantity of all necessary factors. Tactics and logistics are two aspects of the maneuver that are complementary to each other. Hence, we cannot talk about tactical maneuver or maneuver logistics, because both are involved in the execution of a single mission.

It controls melee weapons, support and logistic support. The set is equipped and organized to achieve an effect on the field of Battle. Solving a logistical problem involves the analysis and reasoning on the basis of the effect to be achieved and based on the means necessary. Therefore, it is a mistake to assume that such problems are the prerogative of a body of specialists.

One must acquire the method of reasoning and logistics capabilities and know the rules of employment services to fulfill this task. The role of logistics is to: Maintain the level of initial allocation of units through the provision of food, equipment, of clothing, fuel and ammunition, spare of any kind and materials organization of the ground, ensure evacuation and treatment personnel, and ensure the continued status of the material. These three tasks are grouped into two functions: A function of supply and a support function.

These two functions are supplemented by a third on the circulation, because no movement can accomplish the logistics mission. The implementation of logistics requires time, so it cannot be improvised. It is the logical outcome of the analysis conducted by the officer in charge of the study.

To do this one must: predict the extent and nature of un-met needs in time and space, compare them to existing resources and then make the request for review, with, if necessary, reinforcements for the next level.

Organizing a logistics system is best suited to the operation because it must be adapted to the needs of the mission. To this end we will determine the logistical arrangements to be adopted, specify the areas of deployment of the base; develop refueling stating the allowances granted; the delivery points for refueling; the schedule of supplies; the extent and nature reserves to be mobile and so on.

This also defines the organization of support by establishing: the service missions; the priorities and efforts; the communication system, and the rules on the circulation; and ensures the protection of the logistics system against air and ground threats.
