How to keep Burma bases supplied is a big mistery to me.
I'm playing with Japan, I've occupied all Burma but my bases are always lacking supplies and often in red.
I've developed to level 4 two AF of Magwe and Mandalay to bomb allied targets in India, but I can't manage to keep these bases resupplied. I've put both of them on stockpiling and +3000 on supplies demand hoping to drain some from Rangoon but without success. I've got 90.000 supplies in Rangoon that is set on stockpiling too, when I switch off stockpiling in Rangoon, then supplies level fall and they vanish (I think they go back to Singapore) instead than spreading to other Burma bases,
how can I do?

Why do you think you should turn on stockpiling? You are telling Rangoon to not release any supplies and then complaining that supply doesn't move. Turn off stockpiling at all bases. Set your supply required to about 7,000 in Magwe and Mandalay and they should gather about 21,000+ supply in a turn or two.

Yes I've tried to switch off stockpiling in Rangoon for two turns, and the supplies were released, 20.000 supplies each turn... but not to Burma that's the problem. I don't know where they go, I suspect back to Singa looking at the tracker, but I'm not sure, maybe elsewhere (china?).
the reason I'm keeping 'stockpiling on' on Rangoon is to keep supplies in Burma until I've understood the problem, I'm a little worried to see them vanish again But I'll try again following your advices, checking and deactivating all 'stockpiling' in all bases in burma, malaya and thayland, vietnam.

No stockpiling in Rangoon, set the other bases to pull supply and you should be good to go... just like Dan said.

Try using 'tracker'. It may help to see the overall supply state.

Is the Monsoon season started? If so, forget about getting anything to anything smaller than a level 5 AF... it's nearly impossibile.

Turn off stockpiling everywhere, drop 300k supplies into Burma, and check what happens. LCUs outside bases tends to lower their supply demand, when there is not enough.

I am not sure supply can be sucked into Singapore, because there is serious problem with automatic move of them from Saigon to Malaya, and this path is even longer.

Also, try to build up all bases which have supply caps, in the chain

Thank you guys for all these useful advices.
I've changed all settings in every base in and outside Burma, switching off all stockpiling.
In rangoon there are 97000 supplies to be spread , I've put supplies request at +7000 on magwe e moulmein and +3000 in other bases where I'm building AF. I've saved tracker info to better monitor the situation (waiting for new features from Damian )
From next turn, I'll start building up the bases with caps in the route towards Mytykina
@Inquisitor: is it correct that the cap limits are bottlenecks that are partially removable expanding AF in bases?
@Greyjoy: when is monsoon period that limits supplies flowing? I've always thought that monsoon period was just a HR

1. Monsoon season is 15 May to 15 October.

2. Size of baseinfrastructure determines supply cap during monsoon season.

Yes and for the next build I'm trying to include some things like supply overlay on the map, stockpiling switches and draw supply multipliers to quickly find problems.

Mucking around with the map in Tracker and doing some graphics programming. I ideally want to determine stockpiling and draw in one filter. Might have stockpiling as bold and draw supply levels underneath.

Anyway - graphically it will allow a one glance look at the map and determine what is happening to logistics.

I can live with that. MichaelM is the real Man though - and me putting it in sometimes tweaks his desire to put it in the game ... (seen it before)

@Damian: Wow, another brick in the masterpiece!
@Grafin: very nice
@everybody: thank you again, the situation is getting better, each turn supplies are flowing to interior bases in Burma!!!
I've already hammered from Mandalay the starting AF of the Hamp, destroying several transports on the ground.
According to cap limitation, in Mandalay supplies have increased by 1800 tons last turn (the cap is 2100, for the missing tons please ask Brit AF )
Now I have only two weeks left before the Monsoon starts!
