In The original WITP, if I remember correctly, you could set up areas of the map for AI control. In AE there are "quite China" scenarios in which the Allied forces inside China ,and IJ, will slowly become a non factor in the game. But you still have to fight for Burma and India. I'm not sure how far the AI will go into India after Burma is captured. Probably the areas along the border.
In terms of ships, I use the ships where the need is. So advance planning is necessary and you can't move everything. You must have something available for operations of necessity.
Fuel can be pulled from anywhere and shipped anywhere. Your only limitation is escorts. What I do is create a string of bases along the rear areas and move fuel, supply, oil and resources along this string. I use the faster tankers, cargo ships and some escorts to move fuel and supply from the rear areas to the forward bases. This can be setup using CS, but you have to monitor it to make sure nothing is backing up.
Hope this answers your question....GP
