Army troops, equipment and supplies can’t transport themselves. That’s where the Army vehicles enter into the picture.

It’s up to the Transportation Management Coordinators to organize and oversee the scheduling of these vehicles, which include semi-tractor trailers, heavy troop transports and passenger buses.

  • Advising military and Department of Defense civilians of their entitlement for shipment of personal property and passenger travel
  • Requesting and coordinating transport capability to meet missions
  • Marking and labeling cargo and freight shipments in accordance with regulatory requirements
  • Documenting and inventorying freight, cargo and material shipments of all types
  • Operating automated data terminal equipment
  • Arranging documentation and reports for follow-up or response to tracer actions
