Abstract:

The Navy currently operates eleven overseas ocean terminals while the Military Traffic Management Command MTMC operates sixteen. This study focuses on comparing Navy and MTMC overseas ocean terminals in the areas of booking, cargo accountability functions, billing systems, electronic data, in-transit cargo visibility, chain of command, mobilization, and rates. This data, which was obtained primarily from phone and personal interviews from terminal managers and comptroller personal at both Navy and MTMC terminals, is used to determine if it would be to the Navys advantage to convert some, or all, of its overseas terminals to Navy-owned, MTMC-operated terminals. It is concluded that the Navy could benefit in several areas if the conversion to MTMC operations were made. A discussion of seven of these benefits is presented in expanded detail.
