Abstract:

Global Container Management is a multi-billion dollar part of the DODs budget. Many reports have criticized the military for shortfalls in the handling of Global Container Management spurring major changes. While the title of distribution process owner is given to USTRANSCOM and executed by SDDC the Combatant Commanders own all containers while residing or transferring through their respective AORs. This combined with training issues and lack of asset visibility creates opportunities to small rewrites of current policies enabling SDDC to execute a fully-functional global container management policy. The primary focus of this research will be on changes needed to training, policies, and full implementation of an integrated supply chain network system.
