This thesis examines some of the trade-offs to be considered when assigning sealift to a deployment. How sealift costs are defined, calculated and assigned is discussed. The trade-offs between different voyage characteristics, vessel types, and vessel mixes are compared using time and money as the standard measures. Recommendations for further use of trade-off analyses are also presented.
