Transportation Transformation: Defense Logistics

The ability to project rapid power anywhere on the globe at any time sets the U.S. apart, and USTRANSCOM ensures this advantage by coordinating the appropriate personnel, platforms, systems and training to maintain this strategic advantage.

This presentation is structured like a reverse pitch, with a tech startup founder interviewing a USTRANSCOM executive about the business challenges they face and their approach to adopting new tech like blockchain and AI.

The United States Transportation Command is one of ten unified commands of the DoD and the single manager of the United States' global defense transportation system - essentially the FEDEX for the DoD. USTRANSCOM provides full-spectrum global mobility solutions and related enabling capabilities for peace and war.
