Overview

Movement control is the dual process of committing allocated transportation assets
and regulating movements according to command priorities to synchronize the
distribution flow over lines of communications to sustain land forces.
Movement control, as a transportation subordinate function, provides commanders a
mechanism to synchronize movements for deployment, redeployment, and
distribution operations to support unified land operations and provides them
situational understanding to effectively influence the movement in their area of
responsibility. Movement control is inherently joint allowing other Services access to
Army common user transportation and is a medium for the Army to utilize joint
transportation to enhance military operations. Not vested in a singular unit,
movement control responsibilities are embedded in a network that relies on
coordination for the planning and execution while ensuring transportation assets are
utilized effectively/efficiently and that LOCs are deconflicted to support decisive
action.
The transportation system is metered by the demand signals of the supported forces
so movement control balances requirements against capabilities, integrates military,
host nation (HN) and commercial transportation by all modes, except pipeline for
bulk fuel, to ensure seamless transitions from the strategic through the tactical level
of an operation.
