|Summary||On any maritime staff, a considerable amount of time is dedicated to logistics planning in support of naval operations. Military Sealift Command (MSC) operates the Combat Logistics Force (CLF), the primary means by which Navy vessels are supported while underway at sea. Essentially, CLF ships are afloat and very mobile warehouses that sustain the Navy's combatant forces via the at-sea transfer of fuel, material, provisions and ordnance. While MSC operates the CLF, with responsibility for the maintenance, safety and administrative functions on board each ship, the actual employment of the CLF falls on officers and sailors on a Fleet staff who develop a daily revision of the schedule of events for the CLF fleet in an operational theater spanning a planning horizon that may stretch many weeks into the future.|
