PEARL HARBOR (NNS) -- Naval Supply Systems Command Fleet Logistics (NAVSUP FLC) Pearl Harbor won the Navy's active-duty category for the 2017 National Defense Transportation Association (NDTA) Military Unit of the Year Award.

NAVSUP FLC Pearl Harbor Commanding Officer Capt. Eric A. Morgan, Ocean Terminals Director/Operational Support Officer Lt. Cmdr. Calvin E. White, and Ocean Terminals Longshoring Director Earl K. Fernandez, accepted the award during the 6th annual NDTA-U.S. Transportation Command Fall Meeting in Washington, D.C., Oct. 24.

Since 1966, NDTA has honored military units from the Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard for their outstanding proficiency in logistics and transportation.

“Every single person in the ocean terminals department has contributed to this achievement,” said White. “We have a responsibility to make sure the warfighters have what they need to be successful and we take that very seriously. The team works diligently around-the-clock during operations and stands ready to support any contingency.”

NAVSUP FLC Pearl Harbor’s ocean terminals department provided world-class transportation support through stevedoring, documentation, freight staging, and containerization services to the joint warfighters operating in the Middle Pacific area of responsibility. The team worked with all branches of service, active duty and reserve military personnel, foreign military, and commercial carriers to support deployments and exercises, enhancing warfighter readiness while prototyping and testing improvements for the efficient and effective movement of cargo.

“We successfully met all operational logistics and transportation mission requirements,” said White. “It was a testament to the resilience and professionalism of the civilian workforce, active-duty and Reserve component military personnel, and partnerships with the Surface Deployment and Distribution Command and supported units.”

NAVSUP FLC Pearl Harbor is one of eight FLCs under Commander, NAVSUP.   Headquartered in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, and employing a diverse, worldwide workforce of more than 22,500 military and civilian personnel, NAVSUP's mission is to provide supplies, services, and quality-of-life support to the Navy and joint warfighter.
