comprises all U.S. Department of Defense
-owned, leased, and controlled 20- or 40-foot intermodal ISO containers
and flatracks, supporting equipment such as generator sets and chassis, container handling equipment, information systems, and other infrastructure that supports DOD transportation and logistic operations, including commercially provided transportation services. This also includes 463L pallets

, nets, and tie down equipment as integral components of the DOD Intermodal Container System.
The size and configuration of the common-use portion of the DOD container system controlled by the U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM), will be determined by USTRANSCOM based on established requirements and availability of commercially owned containers and equipment. USTRANSCOM will lease or procure additional containers as required to augment the DOD container system.
