The purpose of this thesis is to examine issues and concerns resulting from the utilization of containers to transport unit equipment during surge phase deployments and to appraise transportation decision-makers of potential problem areas. This thesis provides an overview of container operations during Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm. It examines the effects of containerization of unit equipment on unit integrity from both the unit commander and the transportation provider perspectives. It examines container policy, availability and supply, and militarily useful configurations. The use of procured and leased containers is examined and potential costs and benefits associated with each method, as well as the effects on the container market as a whole, are assessed. Tracking capabilities and visibility of in-transit containers are also examined from both the military and commercial perspective.
