Marines in combat require a rapid and flexible logistics capability responsive to the 21st century battlefield. GCSS-MC is the answer to this critical operational imperative. Providing a deployable, single point of entry for all logistics requirements, GCSS-MC introduces cutting edge enabling technology in support of logistics operations while facilitating the modernization of aged logistics processes and pro­cedures. Critical performance objectives include reduced logistics response and customer wait time while decreasing dependence on forward-positioned stocks.

GCSS-MC rides on the existing Marine Corps Tactical Data network and substantially improves the Combat Effectiveness of the Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF). GCSS-MC Increment 1 is being implemented in two major releases: Release1.1 (core logistics business functionality) is the initial system implementation providing enhanced supply and maintenance capability. Release 1.2 provides functionality for Marines working in deployed austere environments.
