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.
