Honoring the brave: Veterans Day

As our nation celebrates Veterans Day, Corsia Logistics Team takes a moment to salute the brave men and women, whose devotion to duty and our country deserves our respect and gratitude, not just today, but every day.

In the military circles, they say: “Amateurs talk about tactics, but professionals study logistics.”

Logistics has always been a vital part of any military action: one as simple as meal delivery, and one as complex as planning a gargantuan operation across the Atlantic. Transporting military forces, delivering supplies, and sustaining operations – all belong to the realm of logistics and often determine the success of any military action.

Just imagine, in the first six days of D-Day operation, 326,547 troops, 54,187 vehicles, and 104, 428 tonnes of supplies had come ashore Normandy. Logistics at its finest! All this was planned and executed without the help of technology by soldiers, men and women, who made it their mission to protect our peace.

This is just one example (of countless many) demonstrating that soldiers understand the importance of delivering the right goods to the right place at the right time. A trait that is also integral to today’s civilian logistics.

Veterans have all the necessary knowledge, skills, capabilities, and attitude fundamental to civilian logistics. In the auto transport industry, they make great drivers, dispatchers, or customer service representatives. Discovering how military logistical skills can help civilian companies is a wonderful way to re-integrate veterans in civilian life and ensure successful logistical operations for civilian companies.

This is also how we can express our gratitude to those who put the needs of the country and its citizens before their own.
