12.   Cask Shipments

The assessment of shipment groups (section 5) determines the assemblies and MTU to be picked up for shipment from a particular storage location in a particular acceptance year. The identification of cask options (section 6) determines the transportation casks available under the particular scenario, and the transportation choice assessment (sections 7 through 11) determines the cask option selected for shipment from each storage location.

The next step in the assessment process is to determine the number of cask shipments from each storage location in each acceptance/pickup year.
