Equipment material’s transportation is one of the most important part in the theater of equipment support work, which decides whether the whole theater’s equipment support could be fast and efficient to carry out and successfully completed. Considering the complexity, rapidity and danger of the equipment transportation in the wartime situation, two optimization models of emergency transportation of multi-demand and multi-cargo equipment under different time factors are established. The mathematical model is deduced, and the analytic algorithm is given for the two models. The correctness of the model and the validity of the algorithm are illustrated by concrete examples.
