Description

U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM), established in 1987, is responsible for creating and implementing world-class global deployment and distribution solutions. In 2003, USTRANSCOM became the Department of Defense's Distribution Process Owner and the single entity that directs and supervises execution of the strategic distribution system. USTRANSCOM also manages supply chain related information technology systems and has the authority to procure commercial transportation services. USTRANSCOM's three component commands -- the Air Force's Air Mobility Command, Scott AFB, Ill.; the Navy's Military Sealift Command, Washington, D.C.; and the Army's Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command, Scott AFB, Ill. -- provide intermodal transportation across the spectrum of military operations.

Mission

To improve the global deployability and sustainment of U.S. Armed Forces by providing the Department of Defense with transportation engineering, policy guidance, research, and analytical expertise to support the National Military Strategy. USTRANSCOM's transformation vision is to change its orientation from a Command that provides strategic transportation to a Command that develops and employs end-to-end (E2E) global coordinated distribution of forces and materiel.
