Germersheim Army Depot home to new distribution center
GERMERSHEIM ARMY DEPOT, Germany — The U.S. European Command's Theater Consolidation and Shipping Point, Europe was officially opened during a ribbon cutting ceremony here Oct. 2, 2006.
The new facility is responsible for the rapid segregation, sorting, and consolidation of multiple consignee shipments from a range of sources and delivery to the customer.
Army Lt. Col. Lance R. Koenig, commander of the new facility, says that the processing point will ultimately provide effective, efficient and innovative support to the warfighter. "In layman's terms, the TCSP(E) receives all air pallets arriving to Ramstein and terminating in the EUCOM area of responsibility as well as sea-van containers arriving in Rotterdam containing materiel for multiple customers," said Koenig. "We then sort, re-pack, and ship to customers throughout Europe."
The facility is a component of the Defense Logistics Agency's Defense Distribution Center and supports all Defense Department activities in Europe.
