JOINT BASE CHARLESTON, S.C. - U.S. Army Sgt. Roberto Espino, 640th Transportation Det. Tampa, Florida, inspects equipment as it arrives at an initial staging area here Oct. 20. Joint Base Charleston was chosen as the installation support base because it’s one of the few Department of Defense installations with sea and aerial port facilities. The different modes of transportation offer different benefits. A sealift vessel is capable of moving more cargo at a slower speed than airlift and airlift is faster with less cargo capacity. By combining the two, representatives are able to airlift urgent items while sealifting large quantities of less emergent materials.
