080723-A-4704P-067 - The Navy Elevated Causeway System will act as a conduit between the ships anchored at sea and the shore during Joint Logistics Over The Shore 2008. 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.
