I am currently an 88N.
Here is the brief description:
The Transportation Management Coordinator coordinates (88N), monitors, controls and supervises the movement of personnel, equipment, and cargo by air, rail, highway and water. Determines the most efficient mode of transport that accomplishes mission requirements. For being a Staff SGT you would be supervising all the movements. Hope that helps.

It depends on the post you go to and the position you are in. Being a SSG you will either be in a SPO trans section or an MCT. In an MCT you will work to ship and receive assets and may have the opportunity to work with outside organizations. In a spo trans unit you will work to meet your battalions trans needs, either way you and whatever team you are on your focus will be on deployment of assets when your unit is up for mission. However an MCT is made up of nothing but 88n so you will have not only your trans job but also your normal unit functions such as supply, ops, admin, training, etc.
