Systems demonstrations showcasing Battle Command Sustainment Support System, Single Mobility System, Radio Frequency Identification, Worldwide Port System
, Transportation Coordinators Automated Information for Movements Systems II and Global Transportation Network were also available for viewing.
The group participated in classroom refresher training in ship loading and stowage, Integrated Computerized Deployment System (ICODES), Worldwide Port System
(WPS), and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tag writing and reading," Rivera said.
