The First Destination Transportation and Packaging Initiative (FDTPI) supports the 2010-2017 Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Strategic Plan to leverage industry capabilities, and realize process excellence by balancing efficiency and effectiveness. FDTPI is an enterprise-wide initiative to reduce acquisition costs for eligible procurements and gain other efficiencies by leveraging the government’s negotiating clout and inherent economies of scale within targeted supply chains. Currently, FDTPI targets primarily Class IX material as well as some Class IV and VII materials. Aviation, Construction and Equipment, Industrial Hardware, Land and Maritime are the supply chains participating in FDTPI at the present time.


The FDTPI project entails the implementation of transportation and packaging concepts approved by DLA leadership that will transform the DLA business model in the manner in which supplies are transported and packaged. First destination shipments from suppliers to DLA include transportation and military standard (MIL-STD) packaging costs which are “bundled” into the acquisition price of the materiel, obscuring the real cost of the products. FDTPI will unbundle first-destination freight (FDT) and packaging (FDP) costs from the acquisition price of new-procurement materiel and utilize government personnel or contracted services to provide freight and/or MIL-STD packaging more efficiently than is possible by many DLA suppliers.
