5 Ways to Improve Military Gear Storage on Base

Increase Readiness. Reduce Footprint. Prevent Property Loss.

August 19th, 2020 - 2 min read

If your government purchase card limit has recently been increased, this is the perfect time to take control of unorganized areas on base.

Does your unit have a “black hole?” That’s an area in a warehouse, in a CIF, in a tool room, or anywhere that gear tends to pile up. We see it all the time. A few bulk supplies get stacked in a corner, or gear that’s too big for lockers is crammed onto storeroom shelves, and pretty soon stuff gets lost and inventory becomes a nightmare. Worst of all, you’re wasting time looking for gear and sometimes even wasting money on things you already have, if only you could find them.

If your unit’s equipment and supplies aren’t ready and secure, neither is your unit. Ready, secure military gear storage is your first step in supporting your troops and their missions.
