Nearly 900 selected Navy reservists are assigned to 40 MSC units worldwide. When mobilized, these reservists quickly take charge of establishing MSC port offices to assist with sealift operations wherever and whenever needed.
We utilize Navy Reserve cargo afloat rig teams, or CARTs, to quickly augment civil service mariners aboard combat logistics force ships which transfer food, fuel, ammunition and other critical supplies to Navy combatant ships at sea. CARTs are composed of reservists who are highly trained at the MSC UNREP Training Center in underway replenishment operations, both by connected replenishment and by using military or commercial helicopters during vertical replenishments.
