Since 1950 the Navy has moved its high-priority cargo through its Quick Transportation System (QOICKTEANS) . This study examines the development of -hat system 'and the concurrent growth of the commercial air cargo industry. The authors selected Emery Worldwide as a representative of the commercial air cargo industry and compared its capabilities with the COICKTRANS system requirements. The authors conclude that the commercial system represents an effective and cost efficient alternative to QUICKTRANS. Several preliminary objectives which must be satisfied in order to facilitate a shift to a commercial system alternative are identified and a contracting plan to meet those objectives is presented.
