      • Commodities and supplies are most often delivered in over-the-road tractor trailer loads.
      • Large open areas are required to accommodate the vehicles with their loads.
      • Distribution points must be areas that are paved, concrete, or gravel hard-stand that can withstand loads that are at load limits of national roadways.
      • In addition to the area needed for the trucks, planning must include areas for unloading, dumpsters, proper traffic flow, stockpiles, and ingress and egress for the distribution to the public.

      • Commodities will be pushed forward before logistical
      • structures are in place.
      • The critical planning factor for ordering commodities

      • Distribution planning must be a priority with local
      • governments for the commodities mission to be successful.
      • All levels of government must understand the POD concept.
