Abstract : This thesis examines the program for qualifying DOD Freight Motor Carriers to identify areas that can be revised to improve the qualification process. It assesses the current program's financial performance and resource requirements. From this assessment, a proposed structure is developed and provided to enrich the qualification program and maximize the quality of transportation services furnished to DOD shippers. Specific recommendations focus on modification of the performance bond requirements, improved reporting and analysis of financial records, more detailed reporting of carrier resources, and upgrading of performance standards.
