Abstract:

This study explores the concept of tactical vehicle pooling in the context of vehicle fleet planning and the potential reduction of vehicle requirements by means of serving users with pooled rather than organic vehicle fleets. The scope of the effort is limited to the vehicles and units of a type corpsarmy service area and emphasis is upon development of analytical methods and their application. The tasks, organizational assignments, and operational modes of the corpsarmy service area fleet are explored for potential vehicle pooling situations. Methods of analyzing pooled versus current vehicle fleet performance are then developed and tested through a series of example problems including cargobulk fuel transport, maintenance vehicle operations, and containerization.
