Transportation Modes and Criteria

 Transportation Modes and Criteria

​The military transportation environment can be broken down into four general transport modes (highway, rail, marine, and air). Each mode has its own unique design limitations and requirements. In addition, we provide information on commonly used shelters and containers, as well as information on military lifting and tiedown provisions. Additional transportability criteria can be found in MIL-STD-1366 Transportability Criteria and TEA PAM 70-1 located here.
