Paul Selva, current commander of Air Mobility Command, said at his nomination hearing before the Senate Armed Services Committee.
Lawmakers pressed Selva on the plans because of the rising unrest in Ukraine and because of possible ramifications should the U.S. respond with sanctions to Russia's actions on the Crimean Peninsula.
"The Northern Distribution Network, part of which flows through Russia, consists of five different options for how we move cargo in and out of Afghanistan," Selva said . "So, we'll have to look at using other options than the over-flight or transit through Russia should the conduct in the Ukraine continue.
"If the Russians were to take action to constrain our access to the Russian segments of the Northern Distribution Network, we have other options to move that cargo in and out of Afghanistan."
The largest concern with the route through Russia is "subsistence cargo," which includes food and other non-combat items.
"I'm told about 20 percent of the subsistence cargoes move through that network," Selva said. "So we'd have to use another option to get it in. We do have several options in the [network] that do not include transiting Russia."
U.S. Transportation Command is on track to move all the necessary equipment and armaments from Afghanistan by the end of 2014, Selva said. However, the military is looking at a cost-benefit analysis of what equipment should be left behind. If U.S. materiel is left behind, the command would look at possible foreign military sales.
Looking beyond Afghanistan, Selva said the future of his command faces uncertainty as global operations tempo drops.
"Once we have completed whatever retrograde operation happens in Afghanistan, whether we have a residual force or no force remaining behind, the demand signal for lift, surface and air will diminish significantly," Selva said. "We have seen a nearly 50 percent reduction in requirement for sustainment cargo into and out of Afghanistan. ... That has an implication for our organic fleets."
Selva was nominated on Feb. 7, and has served in his position at Air Mobility Command since November 2012 and previously served as the vice commander of Pacific Air Forces. If confirmed, he would replace Air Force Gen.

Selva said as commander of Air Mobility Command, he took "pretty aggressive action" to secure his networks. He would push TRANSCOM to work with U.S. Cyber Command and 24th Air Force, which provides external network security, to improve defenses. He acknowledged a weakness, however, resulting from the need to connect to contractors' networks.
"The nature of our network that ties us to commercial providers of transportation requires us to have access to the information from their networks as well," Selva said.

Paul Selva, the Air Force's director of strategic planning, said in an interview with The Associated Press.
"Failing that, we take what is already a geriatric Air Force," Selva said, "and we drive it for another 20 years into an area of uncertainty."
An extra $20 billion each year over the next five - beginning with an Air Force budget of about $137 billion in 2009 instead of the $117 billion proposed by the Bush administration - would solve that problem, according to Selva and other senior Air Force officers.
...
Selva and other officers see as the solution seem dim.
...
Current F-15s and F-16s are on average more than 20 years old and have reached a point where spending more money on extensive repairs is a poor investment, Selva said.
...
Selva, who graduated from the Air Force Academy in 1980, said he remembers hearing about the first flight of the mammoth C-5 transport when he was in first grade.B-52 bombers and KC-135 tankers, which refuel airplanes in flight, have been in the inventory for more than four decades.
And mechanics are finding it difficult to keep rust off the A-10 Thunderbolt, a tank-killing plane now a quarter-century old.
"If you want to accept that today we're doing an adequate job with this sort of patchwork of airplanes, when are we no longer able to do an adequate job?"Selva asked."What's the next thing that's going to happen?"
Each F-22 Raptor costs about $160 million.The Air Force says it needs 381 of the radar-evading planes and is fighting to keep the production line from being shut down too soon.
"We have never rolled off of the requirement to field 381 F-22s," Selva said.
