The US Navy has contracted Huntington Ingalls’ (HII) Technical Solutions division to continue providing logistics support for a further five years to the Naval Expeditionary Logistics Support Group (NAVELSG).
“For more than a decade, our team has delivered on the mission to ensure the Navy and Joint Forces have the materiel our nation’s globally deployed military personnel need for optimal readiness,” explained Garry Schwartz, President of Technical Solutions’ Defense & Federal Solutions business unit. HII will continue providing asset management, integrated logistics support and specialised services, including overhaul, kitting, equipment and network support. These activities will enhance NAVELSG’s ability to support forward-deployed service members.
NAVELSG is a vital enabler of Maritime Prepositioning Forces, Joint Logistics Over-the-Shore operations and maritime forces ashore. It provides expeditionary cargo handling services for surface, air and terminal operations, tactical fuelling and ordnance handling/reporting in support of worldwide naval, joint, interagency and combined forces.
