Military transport is as old as warfare itself, as rations, weaponry and other necessary equipment had to be provided for the soldiers even in ancient times. Military transport has a long history through the ages since the spread of wars involving long distance troop movements the transportation of soldiers, sustenance, weaponry and equipment for camp placement has become increasingly important. It is defined as the transfer of higher unit, unit, subunit, institutions, subdivisions, military materials and technical devices from one area to another through various transport sectors. Moreover, military transport includes not only the transfer of materials and devices but the transportation of personnel as well. The paper examined the strategic significance of each mode of transport at the army. Therefore, the KIPA analysis was performed for prioritisation, which was used to determine the transport sector that has the greatest role in the life of the army.
