Abstract:

New criteria for air shipment were considered. Air shipment of items based on priority is not expected to generate all of the cargo which the growing Military Airlift Command MAC fleet will be capable of carrying within the peacetime flying hour program. Easily applied economic air eligibility criteria for selecting intercontinental DoD cargo for airlift are needed by DoD. By use of such criteria DoD can make significant savings and cost avoidances primarily because airlift is faster than sealift thereby permitting a reduction in inventory. Therefore, the more expensive the cargo that is airlifted, the greater the savings. Adjustments to the criteria will be required to reflect actual experience.
