NATO is undertaking its biggest adaptation since the Cold War, with more investments, modern capabilities and NATO forces kept at high readiness levels. As part of this, NATO commanders are developing new military concepts and strategies to compliment the Alliance's military priorities and evolving approach to current and future threats.
The Alliance has a responsibility to establish the conditions needed for the expeditious movement of military forces throughout Europe. The primary strategic purpose of military mobility is to move forces and resources rapidly over distance and, by so doing, afford its political and military leadership options to enhance deterrence and defence or engage in effective military crisis management beyond NATO's borders.
General Vollmer summarized that "deterrence only works efficiently when you proof that you are capable to act or react short notice effectively".
