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.
Excess containers, approximately 3,197, could then be transferred to AIDPMO to be utilized by any DoD agency requiring these type containers.
AIDPMO has agreed to accept responsibility of all excess containers turned over to their agency to include all transportation costs.
It is also recommended that the Air Force turn over all excess containers to AIDPMO to manage and maintain.

centrally managed and issued containers will be hand-receipted to units by an installation transportation office/mobilization site when deploying, and accounted for in the ACAMS instead of on the unit's property book in PBUSE.
AMC assigned the AIDPMO, located at Tobyhanna Army Depot, to SDDC.
Additionally, more than 80,000 ocean carrier and leased containers have been purchased by SDDC and AIDPMO which has resulted in a further reduction in daily detention and costs.
