Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to analyze and compare the air freight rate structure of commercial air freight carriers and the U.S. Air Force's Air Mobility Command (AMC) in a peacetime environment. Research was conducted on six commercial companies and AMC routes, structures, and services. AMC's channel flight system, operated over specific heavy shipment routes, was used as a baseline for comparison purposes. Associated air freight services are examined to address possible value added properties from a Departrnent of Defense (DOD) perspective. From these analyses, a set of recommendations for utilizing AMC or commercial air freight assets for DOD air freight requirements is offered.
