recognizes the extremely difficult economic and operational challenges imposed
upon our DoD transportation and logistics customers,” Says Bill Parker, COO of
Salient. “We are proud of our team’s ability to achieve transportation and
logistics cost savings while our nation is at war and we hope our industry
colleagues will join us in this industry-led initiative to proactively serve
government interoperability standards exist, the failure to implement these
standards with industry transportation and logistics stakeholders contributes
to an increased cost of logistics operations and results in missed
opportunities to create significant benefits. Salient is leading the industry
to proactively adopt, adapt, and augment government interoperability standards
to close the gap between the military and critical industry stakeholders such

mission critical operational efficiencies and cost savings.
