Echo (Ft Eustis) is composed of Soldiers training for all transportation military occupational specialties (minus 88N). On 13 May 2005, the Secretary of Defense published his Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) recommendations, which required the consolidation of similar branch centers and schools to single posts for better efficiency in training.

Echo Company (AIT) would remain at Fort Eustis and fall under the 266th QM Battalion. Echo Company was officially assigned to the 23rd QM BDE on May 2010; the company leadership has duty at Ft Eustis.
