080723-A-4704P-306 - Sailors aboard small pieces of lighterage get ready to link up with the Navy Elevated Causeway System where cranes will lift shipping containers to be driven ashore during Joint Logistics Over The Shore. JLOTS is an exercise that increases the Army's and Navy's ability to build improvised ports for transporting equipment from ship to shore when a harbor or pier has been damaged or is nonexistent. Nearly 1,500 pieces of rolling equipment and shipping containers will be moved from ships with a series of lighterage systems (floating roadways) and smaller boats to improvised piers on the shore.
