Freight Shipping Costs [Moving]
The Freight Shipping Cost for a non-Unique installation is the sum of the Material Cost,
Equipment Cost, Crating Cost, and Storage Cost for the installation.
The Material Cost is the total number of Officers Enlisted Personnel, Military Stuldents and
Civilians Realigning (Realignments are in Screen Three - Movement Table; for Civilians use Total
Civilian Personnel Moved) times the Material Per Person (in Standard Factors - Transportation Tab)
divided by 2000 times the Receiving base's Freight Cost (Screen Four - Base Information (Static))
times the Distance between Bases (Screen Two- Distance Table).
Equipment cost is the Total Enquipment Moved (the sum of Non-vehicle Mission Fqunipment and
Support Equlipment in Screen Three - Movement Table) times the Receiving Base's Freight Cost times
the Distance Between Bases.
Crating Cost is the Total Equipment Moved times the Packing and Crating Cost from Standard
Factors - Transportation Tab.
Storage Cost is the total number of Officers, Enlisted Personnel, and Civilians Realigning
(Realignments are on Screen Three; for Civilians use Total Civilian Personnel Moved) times the
Average Storage-In-Transit Cost from Standard Factors Screen Three.
Since distances and receiving base Freight Costs vary, Freight Shipping Cost is calculated
separately for each receiving base, then added together.
Freight Ship Cost = Material + Equipment + Crating
Material = (Off + Enl + Stu + Civ Realign) * (Material Per Person / 2000)
* Freight Cost * Distance
Equipment = (Support + Non-Vehicle Mission Equip) * Freight Cost * Distance
Crating = (Support + Non-Vehicle Mission Equip) * Packing and Crating
