A Life of Service…


The Medical Air Bridge (MAB) Program is a consolidation and transshipment cross docking operation for the transport and delivery of authorized medical material to Warfighters overseas. DLA Troop Support Medical Supply Chain manages the MAB in partnership with Cardinal Health, the Prime Vendor (PV), customers, commercial suppliers and delivery services. Cardinal Health operates both the global North region, serving the Central Command (CENTCOM), and the European Command (EUCOM) Theater; as well as the global West region, serving the Pacific Command (PACOM) Theater.

The MAB application is a centralized database of logistical information (for all) orders submitted to process through the MAB cross docks. Customers are required to input their order information into the application immediately after placing the order(s) with the vendors. The application then enables DLA Troop Support and its partners to input, communicate and track shipments through the MAB program. It provides detailed In-Transit Visibility (ITV) to include open, received and shipped orders, with accessible links to obtain commercial bill numbers to provide transit data and proof-of-delivery information.
