In today's environment, strategy and national objectives form the core of the whole spectrum and logistics start with the fact that much of the strategy grows out of the economic and industrial situation. Defence and development complement each other provided a holistic view is taken and defence related industry, both in the public and private sectors, is allowed to homogenise. The author discusses automation in the field of logistics, asset vision and puts up a case for a "national logistics grid". The chapter on Logistics in Nuclear Environment will be of special interest to the reader because of novelty of this requirement where material support to a modern military is concerned. A small resume on Kargil conflict and role of logistics units and services has been added. Suggestions for improving service to combat troops in the aftermath of this conflict should trigger thinking in appropriate quarters.
