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.
