In the post cold war ERA, our military is extremely dependent on joint strategic deployment assets to get our forces to the fight. Deployment operations need to be fully linked using the principles of Reception, Staging, Onward Movement and Integration RSOI. Today, more than ever, we need comprehensive, well thought-out plans that maximize the use of available assets, insuring that cargo flows through a water port as efficiently as possible. Single port management doctrine will provide the continuity and the seamless transfer of cargo necessary to meet deployment missions. The doctrine on single port management is still evolving and not entirely written. With clearly defined responsibilities and accepted doctrine, our ability to support geographic commanders greatly improves. Only then will we have a seamless fort-to-foxhole joint logistics management process.
