Military Logistics Strained, But Healthy, Official Says
 The state DecemberArticleOneAir Force Lt. Gen. Brooks L. Bash said military logisticians are, in many respects, the unsung heroes of America's 21st-century wars. In the past year alone, they orchestrated the withdrawal of tens of thousands of American service members and millions of pieces of equipment from Iraq. They supplied forces fighting in Afghanistan, even as political considerations closed a key route into the landlocked country. 


Biomass Transportation and Supply Chain Issues in Mississippi
Biomass Plant  Now a days, renewable energy becomes popular in order to reduce dependence on imported oil and reduce carbon emissions. Among various renewable energy sources, biomass is a significant one. Mississippi is home of enormous biomass resources. With respect to biomass potential, Forbes Magazine ranked Mississippi as one of the top five states in the USA. The cost of biomass transportation and supply chain is a major issue for Mississippi biomass plants. Inefficient uses of supply chain networks, insufficient number of supply chain partners, lack of understanding of transportation and supply chain dynamics are some issues among others are driving the cost.
