FALLS CHURCH, VA /PRNewswire/ -- CSC (NYSE:CSC) announced that it has established a Logistics Center of Excellence (COE), expanding its community of COEs to 17. Each center focuses on a specific set of capabilities, based on leading-edge technologies, that support CSC's most innovative solutions for commercial and government clients.
Located in Merrifield, VA., the Logistics COE provides a platform for thought leadership that addresses real-world logistics challenges. The center identifies best practices that enable repeatable, cost-effective solutions and services that optimize supply, transportation and maintenance functions throughout an enterprise framework. It provides access to experts in supply chain optimization, enterprise integration, distribution management/transportation, maintenance/repair and facility management. Areas of expertise span the Department of Defense, civil agencies and commercial markets.
"Our people are our key strength," said Daniel G. Brown, vice president of CSC's Logistics Center of Excellence. "They're professionals from the federal and commercial marketplaces who bring a broad range of technical, functional and analytical skills to our logistics solutions. They have the domain expertise that lets us combine thought leadership and innovation with new technology to offer real-world solutions to our clients' logistics challenges."
