A recent example is the ongoing cooperative logistics
effort in the Baltic states.
World events further expanded the demand and within a week, a one-day event became a three-day feat of international and inter-service cooperative logistics
military to enter into agreements with European militaries for cooperative logistics
support of a life-support and combat-support nature--items like food, petroleum, and "dumb" munitions.
We have also seen the implementation of the Cooperative Logistics
Supply Support Agreement (CLSSA), which allows the customer country to invest in and become a partner in the USAF and Defense Logistics Agency supply systems; the Parts and Repair Ordering System (PROS), which was developed to provide our customers with world class logistics support for non-standard and difficult to support standard item requirements; the Worldwide Warehouse Redistribution System (WWRS), which allows existing FMS countries to relieve excess serviceable inventory by offering items for sale; and finally, the Defense Security Assistance Management System (DSAMS), which was created for case development, implementation and tracking.
The RIRO program permits an FMS customer, with an existing Cooperative Logistics
Supply Support Arrangement FMS case in place, to order repairable components from the Navy supply system on an exchange basis.
