Abstract : The Military Traffic Management Command's (MTMC's) Guaranteed Traffic (GT) program will grow substantially over the next several years. This report offers a strategy to streamline the GT program using automated systems and electronic data interchange technology. It recommends that MTMC accept transportation rates from commercial carriers via the American National Standards Institute ASC (Accredited Standards Committee) X12 data standards and VAN (value-added network) communications services. Those rates would then be process using a customized MTMC computer system. By automating the GT program, current MTMC personnel should efficiently handle the increase workload....
