We are excited to announce that the 11th edition of FUTURE FORCES 2014 (FF14) will host the official meeting
of the MLCC members this October in Prague. Close cooperation between the MLCC Directorate and FUTURE
FORCES 2014 in pursuance of hosting the working group members’ meeting gives our exhibitors the
outstanding opportunity to meet the decision makers from leading NATO and cooperating countries all over
the world in military logistics operations.
The Capable Logistician Workshop builds upon the tremendous success of CL13 and presents another MLCC´s
contribution to common effort in the area of Logistics Capabilities Development. CL14 will bring together the
international logistic community in order to enhance the preparedness of the next exercise Capable Logistician

areas (FAs). The Military Capabilities that Alliance will need for the coming decade and beyond must be
