This new company will be comprised of some preexisting platoons from Supply Company, as well as a motor transportation capability from the Headquarters and Support Company and an additional 30 Marines to form Distribution Liaison Cells.

Marine Air Ground Task Force Materiel Distribution Company was activated during a ceremony, Feb. 9, 2015, aboard Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.
The company has been created within 2nd Supply Battalion, Combat Logistics Regiment 25, 2nd Marine Logistics Group, to establish a proof of principle on the reorganization of intermediate supply and distribution capabilities in order to provide tailored capabilities to units deploying in support of II Marine Expeditionary Force.

This new company will be comprised of some preexisting platoons from Supply Company, as well as a motor transportation capability from the Headquarters and Support Company and an additional 30 Marines to form Distribution Liaison Cells, or DLCs, according to Capt. Jarvis K. Andersen, executive officer, MMDC.

“The mission of the MAGTF Materiel Distribution Company is to provide general shipping and receiving services, consolidated distribution services and to maintain asset visibility to enhance throughput velocity and sustain operational tempo,” said Andersen. “The Marines within the DLCs will maintain a deployable status at all times and be ready to deploy within 24 hours. This will allow us to form habitual relationships with supported units and tailor capabilities to rapidly support contingency and crisis response operations.”

This integration of personnel will enhance the unit’s ability to support outside units, with no changes to garrison support operations or deployed support operations, according to Andersen.

“I look forward to leading these Marines,” said Master Gunnery Sgt. James F. Mitchell, company first sergeant, MMDC. “We need to start from the top by educating and training these Marines. It is a great experience being with this company. We will lead the way for logistics, to be at the forefront for these (job fields).”
