Sealift in Force Projection is Limited By Lack of Adequate Port Facilities
Sealift is Required for Large Throughput Volumes and Force Sustainment
Existing Ports May Have Limited Infrastructure (Demand>>>Capacity)
Links to Transportation Networks Are Inadequate For Required Throughput
Existing Facilities May Be War-Damaged
Storage Facilities or Marshalling Yards Are Nonexistent or Inadequate
Rail Facilities Are Easily Sabotaged
Damaged Rail Facilities
Damaged Storage Areas
Bomb Damaged Roads
Reality: (Circa 1944)
