Definition/Scope: (FM 3-90.31) Movement control includes the planning, routing, scheduling, and control of personnel and cargo movements over lines of communications personnel. Maintaining movement control, keeping LOCs open, managing reception and transshipment points, and obtaining host nation support are critical to movement control within a unit's AO. The MEB commander controls movement throughout the assigned AO unless the movement is conducted on MSRs or alternate supply routes (ASRs) designated by higher headquarters. The MEB provides movement coordination and regulation on these MRSs and ASRs. Units may not move through the AO without clearance from the MEB. The MEB designates, maintains, secures, and controls movement along the routes within the AO unless the higher headquarters directs otherwise.
