Logistics Management

Our Mission

To deliver the right resources, at the right place, at the right time, to support state, local, tribal and territorial governments.

What We Do

Our directorate delivers critical commodities and manufactured housing units following disasters. There are eight distribution centers in the United States and OCONUS strategically located to provide rapid support including commodities like food and water. Also, we established commercial contracts and agreements with multiple public and private sector partners to provide additional support.  We also set up incident support bases and federal staging areas to quickly deliver resources to disaster survivors.

  • Our Distribution Management Division manages a comprehensive supply chain, warehouse operations where we receive, store, and issue commodities and equipment, and transportation operations to effectively and efficiently distribute supplies, equipment and services in response to domestic disasters and emergencies.
  • Our Logistics Systems Division manages, maintains and expands FEMA’s supply chain technology, integrates automated logistics solutions and modernizes FEMA’s logistics systems to ensure the efficient and effective delivery of critical assets in support of domestic emergencies.
  • Our Logistics Operations Division provides FEMAs single logistics focal point for executing, integrating and synchronizing multi-discipline logistics operations.
  • Our Office of Business, Industry, and Infrastructure Integration (OB3I) works to stabilize lifelines to optimize survivor access to critical services and business continuity.  We do this through effective sequencing of effort based on analysis of system interdependencies for local, state, regional, or national benefit; preventing events  or mitigating  cascading failures across multiple sectors; creating harmony and coordination between all levels of government and business during cross-sector operations; stabilizing supply chains and distribution networks both within the affected area and outside to protect public health and safety, reduce economic impacts; and, creating an monitoring indicators of degradation of critical infrastructure and supply chains that impact national security and the national economy are identified, prioritized, and addressing as indicated
  • Our Incident Management Support Division builds and retains a diverse, qualified, and effective workforce and increase opportunities for inclusion in order to improve organizational performance and maintain professional, technical, and management proficiency.
