Abstract:

The process of reserving space containers aboard vessels for transoceanic shipment is investigated. Controllable input variables to the system are discussed and analyzed in terms of defined performance variables, their interactions, and their impact on booking policy. The tradeoffs between these factors are looked at to show the possible alternatives with regard to a booking policy. The various DOD commands involved with the booking process, their relationships and current booking policies are discussed. System interrelationships and operational tradeoffs among the performance variables are identified.
