Compared to when I had to do this by hand, utilizing ESM makes me confident that the policies put in place remain in place and that they aren't dropped due to oversight or error," said Ron Black, director of information technology at NAVTRANS.
Whenever Navy cargo needs to be transported, NAVTRANS is actively involved -- determining the Navy's requirements, authorizing air shipments, funding the cost of many shipments, and managing the largest share of Navy's cargo transportation budget and monitoring the carriers' performance to ensure quality transportation services.
Throughout the entire effort, NAVTRANS
Travis Det and duty officers reported to NEXCOM/ NAVTRANS
and NAVSUPHQ on cargo destined for Guam.
NAVTRANS worked with Defense Distribution Center and CONUS Navy shippers to establish DHL as the primary World Wide Express carrier for TP1 cargo movements to U.
NAVTRANS assessed increased airlift requirements to move construction material for base preparations, including scheduling of multiple C-5 Galaxy missions in less than a week to meet surge requirements.
Maintains functions within three divisions: Fleet Support Division (Code 031), Regional Transportation Division (Code 032) and NAVTRANS
Detachment Travis AFB (Code 033).
NAVTRANS now has a division of Liaison Officers to directly connect our customers with the transportation, logistics, and technical experts at NAVTRANS and other transportation commands.
The second component is the NAVTRANS Detachment at Travis AFB, CA.
In closing, let me extend my congratulations to Captain Bob Mundell, Commander, NAVTRANS
, and his staff: especially Mary Rawlings, Jo Policastro, Jean Basnight, Richard McLean, Heather Myer, and all the others who helped produce an absolutely superb NAVTRANS
Symposium this year.
reporting also saves money, allowing GTN users to divert critical parts and supplies even while national defense assets are constantly on the move, as this reference from a user aboard the USS Spruance demonstrates: "I see we have material that is being shipped to Sigonella.
Transportation Symposium and NDTA Exposition will be held from 4-7 February 2002 at the Marriott Waterside Hotel and Convention Center in Norfolk, VA.
I do hope to see them at our NDTA Expo that we coordinate in conjunction with the NAVTRANS
and MTMC Symposia early next year.
