The airport liaison office provides portcall and emergency leave assistance for passengers not served by a Marine Corps traffic management office.
Freight Team (LPD-1)
The Freight Team (LPD-1), formerly known as the Freight Programs and Budget Section, provides USMC traffic management policy and guidance for the movement of freight worldwide and serves as the focal point in developing more efficient methods of transporting, routing, tracing, documenting and billing USMC freight movements within the Defense Transportation System. LPD-1 also develops, manages and oversees the execution of Operation and Maintenance, Marine Corps (O&M, MC), and Transportation of Things (TOT POM/budget. O&M, MC, TOT funds the shipment of freight to Marine Corps forces worldwide. In addition, LPD-1 develops and submits channel freight requirements to the Air Mobility Command and Military Sealift Command A major command of the US Navy, and the US Transportation Command's component command responsible for designated common-user sealift transportation services to deploy, employ, sustain, and redeploy US forces on a global basis. Also called MSC. See also transportation component command. . The team also develops TOT policy and procedural guidance for field activities as well as publishes transportation appropriation data for the movement of Marine Corps freight and personal property worldwide. The team also serves as the Marine Corps functional focal point for Marine Corps freight traffic management systems, the Defense Transportation Regulation (DTR (Data Terminal Ready) An RS-232 signal sent from the computer or terminal to the modem indicating that it is able to accept data. Contrast with DSR.

During 2001, the team worked implementation and maintenance issues associated with PowerTrack, Cargo Movement Operations System (CMOS), Automated Manifest System (AMS AMS - Andrew Message System ), Transportation Management System (TMS) and Air Challenge Programs. The team represented USMC interests on numerous joint service activities involving the safe, efficient movement of freight, and worked closely with the US Transportation Command and its Transportation Component Commands on several initiatives. The team provided traffic management support to the USMC prepositioning and procurement programs. The most significant effort of the Freight Team was its involvement in the Marine Corps' Integrated Logistics Concept where the Marine Corps is improving the entire supply chain process and the Freight Team is helping to shape future USMC logistical support to war-fighting Marines. The objective is to "train as we fight" by supporting forward forces using the most optimal processes and applying these same processes to units in garrison. This initiative is shifting the focus of LPD and USMC Traffic Management Officers into a much broader role of distribution managers.
Personal Property and Passenger Team (LPD-2)
The Personal Property and Passenger Team (LPD-2) develops traffic management policy and programs for the movement of passengers, provides guidance to the Marine Corps on passenger travel issues, and develops Marine Corps policy and procedures for the implementation of Joint Federal Travel Regulations entitlements for transportation and storage of personal property.

Logistics Operations and Sustainment Center (LPO)
The Logistics Operations and Sustainment Center (LPO) provides the mechanics for dealing with operational issues and related logistics support activities, and a means of providing feedback to appropriate organizations on the effectiveness of their actions at the Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF MAGTF Marine Air-Ground Task Force ) level.
Strategic Logistics and Mobility Team (LPO-3)
The mission of the Strategic Logistics and Mobility Team (LPO-3) is to enhance the strategic mobility of Marine Corps Forces. This includes influencing decisions regarding strategic lift programs, Joint procedures and policies governing strategic mobility, systems related to strategic mobility (e.g. TAV/ITV) and Marine Corps policies and procedures Policies and Procedures are a set of documents that describe an organization's policies for operation and the procedures necessary to fulfill the policies. They are often initiated because of some external requirement, such as environmental compliance or other governmental related to strategic movement of MAGTFs. This team ensures that the Operating Forces have necessary policies and procedures regarding Strategic Lift in order to permit these Forces to readily deploy in accordance with applicable Operations Plans (OPLANs) time frames and footprints. To this end, LPO3 engages in the policies and procedures related to planning for, obtaining and exercising this Strategic Lift capability in coordination with higher, adjacent and subordinate Force headquarters as appropriate.
In 2001, LPO-3 and LPD-1, the Transportation Domain Team, were deeply involved in the Systems Realignment and Consolidation! Categorization (SRAC SRAC Southern Regional Aquaculture Center
SRAC Short-Run Average Cost
SRAC System Realignment and Categorization

The USMC SRAC effort clarified a strategy to complete migration from the current multiple systems supporting unit deployment and traffic management to fewer joint transportation systems. As the first functional area of logistics to be "SRAC'd", the team applied experience gained during the OSD-led joint effort, and helped define the process being applied by the SRAC Core Team to the other logistics domains. This migration will realize a cost avoidance for the Marine Corps of two to four million dollars over the next four years. LPO-3 assisted III Marine Expeditionary Force The III Marine Expeditionary Force, is a Marine Air-Ground Task Force of the United States Marine Corps that is forward-deployed and able to deploy rapidly and conduct operations across the spectrum from humanitarian assistance and disaster relief to amphibious assault and high (MEF) in procuring a lease on a high-speed vessel to transport personnel and cargo of a com bat loaded infantry battalion. LPO-3 also worked with MTMC to establish a special billing rate that reflects services that are provided by Marine Corps units at specific MTMC controlled ports.
