Founded in 2005 and added to Shephard's publishing portfolio in 2009, Military Logistics International is a truly global, market-leading publication covering the broad area of military logistics.

MLI's comprehensive coverage of ground, air and naval logistics ranges from fresh ‘after-action’ reports of logistics operations in the field, through logistics transformation issues, to analysis and discussion about industrial aspects of logistics and supply chain matters. The writing in MLI mirrors the common approach to military logistics: factory to foxhole.

Leading figures in the world of military logistics are regularly interviewed to give their views on crucial logistics matters. A highly respected international list of contributors ensures that MLI features the best analysis, comment and news.



The adoption of lithium-ion batteries, among other technologies, has helped boost the power capabilities of militaries, but the logistical trail of a soldier’s devices remains an issue.

Deployable bridges form a key component of a sustained logistical presence within a military theatre. Tim Fish examines the types that have been utilised in recent conflicts.

In an attempt to reduce the need for resupply missions, militaries are looking to acquire more complete ‘basing systems’, while considering ways to reduce overall energy consumption. Liza Helps canvasses what industry is pitching.

Scott R Gourley analyses recent developments with the US Army’s Force Provider base camp logistics modules, which have recently supported operations ranging from combat and combat support to medical and humanitarian assistance.
