This thesis provides an overview of past challenges presented when shipping 40 foot containers to military operations, as well as current force development trends that are applicable to the movement of 40 foot containers. It examines the effects of employing 40 foot containers on the tactical maneuver units as well as the combat service support and transportation corps functions. Various options are presented regarding the desired locations to ship 40 foot containers, examining the tradeoffs inherent in each option as they pertain to tactical and operational mission accomplishment of combat and combat service support units.
