One of the Fast Combat Support Ship's (AOE) functions is the delivery of dry, freeze, and chill provisions to afloat combat units. The present ship characteristics do not provide for handling and stowage of palletized provision cargo . Significant savings in material handling time and cost can be realized from handling cargo in palletized units. A comparison is made between the present handling procedure on AOEs 1 and 2 and five alternative systems. Three of the alternatives will be shown to be infeasible because of the dimensions and physical constraints of the AOE hull. Comparison measures of effectiveness include total elapsed loading time, loading cost per measurement ton of cargo and qualitative considerations. In conclusion, recommendations for modification of the AOEs 1 and 2 to permit palletized handling of provisions cargo are prioritized.
