SAN DIEGO (NNS) -- Naval Supply Systems Command Global Logistics Support (NAVSUP GLS) postal personnel from around the globe met for the second annual NAVSUP GLS Postal Strategic Planning Meeting, May 16-18, in San Diego.

The three-day meeting brought together postal managers from NAVSUP Headquarters, NAVSUP GLS, and the NAVSUP Fleet Logistics Centers (FLC) located in Bahrain, Norfolk, Jacksonville, Pearl Harbor and San Diego.

This year the primary purpose of the meeting was to focus on inspection checklists.

"The meeting provided an opportunity for the postal managers to revamp OCONUS annual inspection forms and CONUS monthly inspection forms that were created nearly 11 years ago," said Dale Pinchart, NAVSUP GLS postal program manager. "This process was long overdue and a quality product resulted from the hard work and experience attendees brought to the table."

In addition, the attendees heard from their NAVSUP GLS senior leadership during a question-and-answer session that the Vice Commander Mr. William Bickert, Jr. presided over.

The Postal Strategic Planning Meeting is an improved, re-booted incarnation of the former Region Postal Manager Meeting, which last took place in May 2016.

"The annual meeting is time well spent to bring postal correspondence up-to-date with technology in use at both CONUS and OCONUS postal facilities," said Pinchart.

The next NAVSUP GLS Postal Strategic Planning Meeting is scheduled for spring 2018.

NAVSUP GLS provides global logistics for a global Navy. The organization is made up of approximately 6,300 military and civilian logistics professionals operating from 105 locations worldwide, providing an extensive array of integrated global logistics and contracting services to Navy, Marine Corps, joint operational units, and allied forces across all warfare enterprises.
