Defense Logistics Agency Pacific

Definition/Scope: Defense Logistics Agency Pacific (DLA-P) is the Defense Logistics Agency?s focal point for issues in the Pacific theater, to include the role of primary liaison to the Pacific Command (PACOM) and the US Forces Korea (USFK) Command. We provide a unified DLA interface for warfighters throughout the Pacific, integrating DLA support within the Pacific theater and reaching back to other DLA activities in the continental United States for logistics solutions. The DLA Pacific HQ is located in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. To better support Warfighters in Korea, DLA-P has a subordinate forward command, DLA-P Korea. The DLA-P Korea command is based in Daegu, Korea, the hub of logistics support for the Korean Theater of Operations, with the DLA-P Korea Commander and planning staff working closely with Service logisticians to integrate DLA into both planning and operations. The DLA-P Korea command constantly stands ready to form a full scale DLA Support Team (DST) to support exercises or operations in Korea, with constant training and practice. Additionally, the DLA Liaison Officer (LNO) to USFK in Seoul directly interfaces with USFK and 8th Army to address their strategic level issues and to ensure an in depth understanding of DLA capabilities. Warfighter Service Representatives (WSRs) are assigned throughout Korea to provide face-to-face support and training to their assigned customers with frequent onsite visits. In addition to Korea, DLA-P provides direct support in Hawaii, Okinawa, mainland Japan and Alaska. At Camp Smith, Hawaii, a PACOM LNO and the Pacific Logistics Operations Center (PLOC) work closely with the PACOM Staff and the Services component Commands to integrate DLA into their plans and operations. The LNO assigned to US Forces Japan (USFJ) in Tokyo works closely with the USFJ staff and integrates DLA support. WSRs are located in Hawaii, Japan, Okinawa, and Alaska, to provide onsite customer support and training.
