The problem
Ever left a logistical vehicle back at the FOB for several minutes before realizing it was needed back at the front with those precious supplies? I've especially noticed many Youtubers doing this in the heat of battle, and this can be pretty frustrating. Thankfully, in the same way that time can be saved by shift clicking on a certain area to get transports to automatically unload troops, the same can be done for logistic trucks.
The solution.
Step 1: Click on the desired logistic truck (note that this is not fully confirmed to work on logistical choppers, but considering they auto land after a short time it may) or trucks, then click or fast move on the FOB you want it to move to. (Make certain to click on the FOB!)

Step 2: After you do this, the FOB stats menu should come up instead of the truck. Click back on the truck that you want, hold shift, and while holding it, either click again or move fast to the position where you want those trucks after they are done rearming.

Step 3: After you've ordered the truck to head to an FOB and given it an order to return to the front afterwards, it should return to the FOB, fully rearm or rearm until the FOB is drained (whichever comes first) and then move to the new position that you specified.

And now you will most likely never have a problem multi-tasking regarding supply vehicles. You now might want to watch your supply vehicles- they might move into territory that has recently become dangerous since you gave them the new move order- but otherwise you should be fine.

Also- If you want to rearm a certain vehicle, take a logistics truck, and click on the desired vehicle. You should now hold shift and click on the FOB or wherever you want it to move to. This will make the LOG vehicle move to the FOB or new position after rearming the vehicle. And of course, you can again shift click or shift move fast to a new position afterwards after it has rearmed.

Richard this game has a very lenghty shelf life very little to replace it so thanks for the advice...

Thanks! I'm a campaign story lover and I've just finished the first German campaign in EE. Hopefully I could slowly march on through this series:)

Well good on you! Enjoy the game. Personally I'd start with EE and ALB for the campaigns (EE has a much better one) then try out Red Dragon for multiplayer. Enjoy!

Just bought the war game franchise during the winter sale and was really annoyed by returning the supply truck manually constantly: ) @Richardguy
