5-8: Administrative Movement

Previous: 5-2: Methods of Troop Movement

5-8. Administrative movement is a movement in which troops and vehicles are arranged to expedite their movement and conserve time and energy when no enemy ground interference, except by air, is anticipated. (Refer to FM 3-90-2 for more information.) Administrative movements only are conducted in secure areas. They include rail and highway movement within the continental United States. Once deployed into theater of war, administrative movements normally are not conducted.
