Abstract:

The move to a power projection force places increased responsibility on transportation movements control to manage the timely flow of units and supplies across the strategic, operational and tactical spectrum of war. A review of the current movement structure, doctrine, and historical experience identifies potential shortfalls in the current movements system that could restrict the operational tempo of forces. The paper concludes with recommendations for improving movement control at the combatant and component command levels. It recommends establishment of a standing Joint Movement Center at the combatant command level to serve as the CINCs focal point for movements. Second, it recommends rolling up the movements, mode, and terminal operations functions under one transportation brigade.
