Abstract:

Joint doctrine stresses the importance of controlling the defense transportation system. The doctrinal publication on system control states that movements control coordinates transportation resources to enhance combat readiness and the priorities of the supported commander. Doctrine further stipulates that efficient transportation in a theater involves establishing effective organization and movement control procedures. Doctrine does not address what these control elements are, or how they are applied to the defense transportation system. This paper develops a concept for controlling the transportation function. This concept is based on generally accepted principles of joint and multinational operations and support to the military element of national power. The paper then analyzes the defense transportation system to determine where and how this control can be applied.
