Term -PV

DLA has developed a supply chain management concept called Prime Vendor (PV) that has improved the efficiency and effectiveness of its logistics support. Prime Vendor eliminates the layering of supplies at multiple echelons and shifts inventory, inventory management, transportation, and personnel costs from the Government to commercial firms. Prime Vendor programs take advantage of the experience of commercial vendors, whose profit-based business practices demand lean inventories and rapid deliveries. Prime Vendor initiatives allow the Department of Defense (DOD) to achieve significant annual savings and revolutionize logistics support of the retail customer. Prime Vendor is Velocity Management in action.
