Abstract:

The report presents the results of a study to determine the feasibility of containerization for Army resupply items. The study has been limited to air transportation of supply classes I through IV shipped from a point of origin in the United States to an overseas forward area. Container criteria for size, weight, cost, strength, effectiveness and general characteristics were developed. Then the design criteria were used as the basis for evaluating the stability of various materials and conceptual container designs. An acceptable container design appears to be feasible.
