NSM has extensive expertise in procurement, inventory management, logistics and warehousing. Whether procuring items directly or via our customers’ existing supply chain, NSM ensures that interfaces and information exchanges between Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems provide full visibility of stock holdings. Our access to marine sustainment hubs, strategically located across Australia, enables us to provide rapid support to our customers and ultimately maximises the availability of stock, parts, equipment, systems and ships.

We are experienced in developing logistics strategies specific to the needs of our customers and the programs we support, including:

  • Slow and fast-moving stock items
  • Minimising inventory holdings
  • Maximising just-in-time delivery
  • Operational priorities and deployment activities
  • Home and foreign port logistics.

We also apply an asset management approach to our customers’ support and test equipment. This includes the ongoing management of maintenance and calibration of items from initial purchase or issue, through to end of life disposal and replacement.

The benefits of an Inclusive Prime approach

Our Inclusive Prime approach means that when planning for the provision of services, one of the first questions we consider is what partnerships with existing Australian capability will add value for our customers. As a result we have close and effective relationships with key companies across Australia’s naval-industry sector, including ship designers, ship builders and OEMs of major systems. Our strategic partners are integrated into our services and provide access to important technical data, knowledge and capabilities relevant for effective and efficient sustainment of the RAN’s assets.
