               Transportation (Defined)
•   Transportation is moving and transferring units,
    personnel, equipment, and supplies to support
    the concept of operations.

•   Transportation incorporates military,
    commercial, and host-nation capabilities.

•   Transportation assets include:
    –   Motor, rail, air and water modes and units
    –   Terminal units, activities, and infrastructure
    –   Movement control units and activities

                                                         8
              Levels of Transportation
•   Strategic Level
    –   Focus is on the movement of U.S. forces and
        equipment to SPOEs and from SPODs
    –   U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM)
        controls strategic movement through its three
        component commands:
        • Surface Deployment and Distribution
          Command (SDDC) (formerly known as
          MTMC)
        • Air Mobility Command (AMC)
        • Military Sealift Command (MSC)
                                                        9
              Levels of Transportation

•   Operational Level
    –   Focus is on building force structure; reception,
        staging, and onward movement; opening ports;
        establishing LOCs; and providing C2 for
        movements.


•   Tactical Level
    –   Focus is on supporting the commander’s intent
        (right support, right place, right time).

                Mode Operators

• Includes drivers and equipment operators.
• Provide transportation assets as committed.
• Operate trailer transfer points (TTPs) and inland
  terminals.
  – TTP: Provide space/facilities for maintenance,
    servicing, and rest. Semitrailers are exchanged
    between line haul tractors.




                                                      12
                Line Hauls and Local Hauls

• Line Hauls
     – Long distance operations (90 miles/150 km)
     – TTPs connect line haul legs
     – 1 round trip per 10 hour shift


• Local Hauls
     – Short distance operations (20 miles/34 km)
     – 2 or more round trips per 10 hour shift
Distance = (10hrs per operating shift - 1 hr delay) 20 mph = (10-1) 20 = 90 miles
                         2 trips per day                         2

                 Mode Operators

• Consists of:
  – Transportation Companies in the Corps and / or
    Sustainment Brigades
  – Trans Plts (from the Distro Co in the BSB)
  – Operators in the Trans
  – Section of the FSC (light
  – units only)




                                                     14
     Basic Movement Control Principles

• Centralized control/ decentralized execution
• Regulated movement
• Fluid and flexible movements
• Effective use of carrying capacity
• Forward support



                                                 15
Centralized Control/Decentralized Execution

•   Centralized Control:
    – Planning and resource allocation for current and future
      requirements is executed by planners and managers at each
      level of command involved in an operation.
•   Decentralized Execution:
    – Mode operators determine the specific assets to assign to meet
      the requirement.




      Bottom Line: Intent is to enhance flexibility,
      prioritize support, and accomplish missions.
                                                                       16
              Regulated Movements
• Prevent conflict/congestion by avoiding system saturation.
• Three applications:
      Apportionment of Vehicles to Requirements
      Regulation of Traffic thru MSRs and LOCs
      Force Projection
• Command priorities guide the regulation of all movements.


                                Bottom Line: Prevents a
                                free-for-all on routes. Units
                                and supplies move along
                                routes in an orderly fashion.


                                                                17
           Fluid and Flexible Movements

•   Uninterrupted movement of personnel, supplies, and
    services is critical.
•   System must allow for traffic re-routing and diversion.
•   System must be linked to Situational Awareness (SA)
    systems to maximize movement control.

     Bottom Line: Use every available route or mode to
         increase flexibility and responsiveness.               18
      Effective Use of Carrying Capacity
•   Keep assets fully loaded and moving.

•   Select the best platform for a given load.

•   Requesting units must be disciplined and return
    Corps, Division, and BSB assets when their mission
    is complete.
                                           Bottom Line:
                               a) Make the best use of your
                                  available assets.

                               b) Empty trucks sitting idle benefit
                                  no one. When the mission is
                                  complete, return the asset so it
                                  can be fully utilized.
                                                                      19
                   Forward Support
•   Rapid delivery of supplies and personnel as far forward
    as possible.
•   Dependent upon fast, reliable transportation.
•   Key = rapid reception of assets (receive, download,
    and clearance/release).
•   May be necessary to augment destination unit’s
    reception and clearance capabilities (pre-stage a
    forklift to help the destination unit download pallets from
    a Corps medium truck company).

Bottom Line: Support forward to provide maximum
responsiveness to the maneuver commander.

                                                                  20
      Movement Principles in the HBCT

• Unity of Command, Centralized Distribution
  Management

• Increased Velocity, Throughput to Forward
  Areas

• Increased Velocity, Minimize Load Handling


                                               21
             Unity of Command
    Centralized Distribution Management
• Controlled by the trans officer (03/88A) and the
  trans management NCO (MOS 88N20) in the
  BSB support operations section.

• Intent:
   – Allow throughput to the customer unit whenever
     possible
   – Reduce time spent off-loading and reloading material
     between echelons.


                                                            22
               Increased Velocity
          Throughput to Forward Areas
• Bypass one or more echelons in the distribution
    network to minimize cargo handling and improve
    velocity on the battlefield.
•   ITV is maintained thru MTS, FBCB2, and BCS3
    (SA systems).
•   Direct throughput relies on:
    – Unity of command
    – Situational understanding (facilitated by SA systems
      and thorough understanding of the commander’s
      intent).

                                                             23
              Increased Velocity
            Minimize Load Handling

•   Use PLS, HEMTT-LHS, and CROP to reduce
    handling requirements forward on the
    battlefield. (Note: Capabilities and
    descriptions of the PLS, LHS, and CROP are
    outlined on the slides that follow).

•   These systems extend throughput capability
    and enhance velocity through flatrack
    exchange at or near the BSA and the FLD
    TRNSs.

                   Flatrack Management
•   Flatrack employment, management, and retrograde operations are
    the responsibility of distribution managers integrated at each
    echelon of support throughout the HBCT area.

•   Flatracks will be dispersed throughout the distribution pipeline,
    particularly from the HBCT rear boundary to the combat trains
    command post (CTCP) of a combat battalion or dispersed
    throughout the area of operation.

•   Flatrack exchange is the preferred method for retrograding flatracks
    from the Field Trains. The Flatrack Collection Points (FRCPs) are
    designated for flatrack consolidation purposes when required, and
    this proposed location is reported to the BSB support operations
    officer.



                                                                           28
     Flatrack Management Responsibilities
•   In the Brigade area and below, flatrack managers
    include the:
    – FSC Distribution Platoon Leader, FSC Executive Officer, BSB
      SPT OPS Movement Control NCO, and the Trans Platoon
      Leader (from the BSB’s Distribution Company)

Their responsibilities include:

•   Identifying a proposed flatrack collection point (FRCP)
    ICW the BSB DC transportation platoon leader.

•   Managing all common user flatracks on an area basis.

•   Ensuring flatrack exchange procedures are optimized
    using Division throughput assets as a matter of priority.
                                                                    29
     Flatrack Management Responsibilities
•   Responsibilities continued:

•   Maximizing the use of BSB DC transportation LHSs for
    retrograding/back hauling flatracks from the FRCP back
    into the distribution pipeline.

•   Reporting flatrack on-hand quantity by location, status,
    and condition to the Transportation Branch at the
    Division.

•   Coordinating with the Division Transportation Branch for
    supplemental transportation support when retrograding
    flatracks from BSA FRCP.

                                                               30

             Force XXI Battle Command Brigade and Below

•   Situational Awareness (SA) system linked to GPS that is
    found in most C2 platforms, TOCs/CPs, and many
    transportation assets.

•   Capable of messaging, orders, overlays, alerts,
    requests, and fires.




                                                              78
       Movement Tracking System (MTS)
•   MTS is a global positioning system that can identify the position,
    track the progress, and communicate with the operators of tactical
    wheeled vehicles anywhere.

•   MTS is a satellite-based tracking/communication system consisting
    of a mobile unit mounted in a vehicle and a base unit controlled/
    monitored by movement control and mode operators.

•   MTS provides real-time, in-transit visibility of vehicles and cargo
    within a theater.

•   MTS has a movement control capability that improves trafficability on
    MSRs and reduces the potential for fratricide.

•   Since all tactical wheeled vehicles do not have MTS installed, it is
    important to place vehicles with MTS in the front, rear, and center of
    a convoy.

    Operations
                           82
        Supporting Offensive Operations

• Upload as much as possible
• Reduce vulnerability of “thin-skinned” vehicles
    (Harden)
•   Extended supply lines increase delivery and turn
    around times
•   Maximize use of preplanned and preconfigured
    push packages
•   Use airlift resupply for units not accessible by
    surface transportation.


                                                       83
        Supporting Defensive Operations

• Delivery and turnaround times decrease.
• Supplies are moved to successive defensive
    positions.
•   Ammunition expenditures and barrier materials
    increase, while fuel decreases.




                                                    84
              Supporting Urban Warfare
•   Movement control is more complex.
•   Civilian foot / vehicle traffic may interfere with operations.
•   Routes within an urban area can be denied easily.
•   Force protection of logistics nodes and convoys is more
    difficult in urban areas (3-levels to worry about).
•   Smaller resupply vehicles (HEMTT/PLS) may be in
    greater demand than tractor-trailers.
•   Use pre-configured loads or push packages to increase
    response time and decrease delivery time.




                                                                     85
    Supporting Counterinsurgency Operations
•   Key to successful transportation operations during
    counterinsurgency operations is PREPARATION
     –   Consider convoy planning preparations
     –   Prepare detailed mission briefs
     –   Rehearse battle drills
     –   Consider convoy organization
     –   Harden vehicles
     –   Improve vehicle-mounted weapon systems
