This paper uses transportation costs to determine whether it makes
sense to centrally locate the C-bags at one specific location, the
Consolidated Mobility Bag Coordination Center (CMBCC) at
Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio, and distribute the bags form there when
needed for deployments. Using cost data concerning the shipment of
bags form the CMBCC to either a deployer's home station or directly
to the deployed location and comparing the data to the excess
baggage charges currently imposed by commercial airlines, the
answer appears to be negative -- that it in not more efficient,
with regard to transportation costs, to distribute bags from a
central facility. There are, however, many other factors to
consider such as personnel manning, replenishment costs for expired
items, and the proper determination of C-bag requirements, before a
decision should be made.
