During fiscal year 2009, AIDPMO funded 25 Maintenance Repair Programs worldwide, repairing over 21,560 containers for deployment and redeployment, sustainment, and retrograde of materials to and from OEF and OIF.
The combined effectiveness of GCM through the Container Management Division and AIDPMO is critical to the global container management mission supporting the joint force.
AIDPMO has agreed to accept responsibility of all excess containers turned over to their agency to include all transportation costs.
