Taking advantage of a growing naval partnership with Sri Lanka, the aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74) established a logistics hub in Sri Lanka to receive support, supplies and services at sea.

According to the website of the United States Pacific Fleet the hub which has been established on a temporary basis provides logistics support to U.S. Navy ships operating in the Indian Ocean.

The temporary air logistics hub concept allows for the use of an airstrip and storage facilities to receive large-scale shipments to move out in various directions in smaller shipments, allowing ships to continue operating at sea by receiving the right material at the right place and time. The hub can also be established to provide expeditionary logistics support during humanitarian and disaster relief missions (HADR).
