Job DescriptionArmy troops, equipment, and supplies only work if they can get to where they need to be. That's why the United States Armed Forces own and operate over 50,000 heavy trucks and buses. It's up to the Transportation Management Coordinators to organize and oversee the scheduling of these vehicles, which include semi-tractor trailers, heavy troop transports, and passenger buses.

Transportation Management Coordinators are primarily responsible for convoys, bills of lading, scheduling, and securing transportation for personnel and equipment. Specific duties may include: advising constituents of shipment and travel entitlements; requesting and coordinating transport capability; marking, documenting, and inventorying freight, cargo, and material shipments; operating automated data terminal equipment; and arranging documentation and reports for follow-up, or responses to tracer actions.

Plus, you'll be building a better future. The skills you learn as a Transportation Management Coordinator, such as teamwork, discipline, and leadership, will help you in any civilian career you choose. You'll be able to pursue a future with privately owned moving companies or freight operators.
