Taiwan Air Force Maintenance and Logistics Command

Formerly the Air Forces Logistics Command, the Air Force Maintenance and Logistics Command was the result of the launch of the streamlining and refinement program that a downsizing of the force will be necessary for such purpose. In Phase 2 of the “Refinement Program,” the Ministry of National Defense ordered for the establishment of the Maintenance and Logistics Command under MND Order Guo-Lue-Jun-Bian-Zi No. 0970000125 dated February 1, 2008 with the dissolution of its predecessor to achieve the goal of “streamlining and refinement of the logistics system.”

The Air Force Maintenance and Logistics Command was established in compliance with the policy guideline and organizational structure of the Air Force Command Headquarters in logistics support, with command of the maintenance, supply, and logistics support vertically like the 1st Logistics Command and the 3rd Logistics Command and the main warehouse of the Air Force for materials supply. Through cautious planning and detection of the obstacles to the carry out of the missions, the command will give guidelines for assistance and solutions. The command also seeks to coordinate the supporting forces for interactive support horizontally to assure the proper accomplishment of the missions of logistics support, maintenance, and supply, and advance towards the goal of efficient logistics support.

The Air Force Maintenance and Logistics Command was established on February 1, 2008, and is a level 1 unit outside the Command Headquarters comprising the operation section, maintenance management section, supply management section, overall logistics section, armament electronics section, business management section, procurement management section, logistics information section and auditing section. The occupational safety section was established on January 1, 2017 under MND Order Guo-Kong-Hou-Pin-Zi no. 1050006705 dated October 21, 2016.

To ensure availabilities of major weapons and equipment for combat training and drills, the ROC Armed Forces have been using the continuous acquisition and life-cycle support (CALS) to integrate all logistical perimeters and analyses for all weapons and equipment through the logistic information management system (LIMS), so as to keep lean maintenance and responsive supply activities, and increase the maintenance quality. Furthermore, the capacities to validate the availabilities of weapons and equipment and the management of their maintenance records have also been improved, so as to effectively control their status, accurately predict the supply demands for periodical maintenance, in order to keep them in a high readiness condition.

The ROC Armed Forces continue integrating maintenance and repair capacities for specialand general-purpose equipment, and discovering workable repair supports across the services through a common logistics information platform, so as to effectively integrate joint maintenance capacities and drive the costs down. In addition, concerning maintenance capacities for newly acquired weapons and equipment, the ROC Armed Forces will effectively provide logistical and maintenance support by the following means: industrial cooperation (offset), integrating current maintenance and reproduction capacities in three services and outsourcing channels.
