The special movement division coordinates and monitors movements
requiring exception, including train paths involving changes in rail gauge.
Operational level of deployment Phase I, theater reception, begins with the
arrival of forces and sustainment at the POD in the AO and ends when the
forces depart towards their assigned location. Page 1-32.
The POE is not within the AO. All others are locations determined by
assessing the distribution pattern within the AO. Page 1-30.
If the requirements exceed the capabilities, the planner must seek a
balance by increasing the transportation capability, reducing the
requirement, or a combination of the two. Page 1-32.
Priority is the first and most important consideration in the selection of a
mode of transportation. Page 1-33.
The Corps MCC mission includes ensuring effective and efficient use of
available transportation capability, monitoring transportation use within
each CSG through its MCTs, and requesting additional transportation
assets from EAC if deployed in the AO. Page 1-39.
Corps Air Force airlift is obtained by entering the airlift request system.
G3, G4, and the MCC participate in the request process. Normally, corps
mode operations do not include a sea mode. Transportation battalions are
under the command of the CSG and tasked by the MCC. Habitual support
places motor transport units in direct support of commodity-oriented
supply companies. Pages 1-44.
The DTO plans for movement of the division by all modes. Page 1-45.
The DISCOM MCO controls the employment of the division's
transportation assets allocated to DISCOM. The DISCOM MCO
coordinates with the DTO to procure additional resources from corps
when transportation requirements exceed transportation capabilities. Page
