- The UDL marked with equipment to be shipped will be used instead of filling out block b on the DD 1149. A close coordination between the Unit, Transportation UMC and Freight is imperative for equipment and cargo movement during deployment.
- All Containers must have a copy of the inventory attached to each container as required by SDDC and a copy provided to Freight when requesting shipping.
- Units shall provide Hazmat documents (DD Form 2890) for moves to the port or DD form 836 for CONUS moves. These Hazmat documents should be signed by HAZMAT-Certified personnel. Certification should be in the Technical Transportation of Hazardous Material as required by DOD Regulation 4500.9-R, chapter 204 and the Code of Federal Regulations, Transportation CFR-49.
- Units shall properly placard containers and any other hazardous material and equipment in accordance with DOD Regulation 4500.9-R and CFR-49.
- Units shall arrange weighing of all containers and equipment. Weights must be on the shipping request before Freight personnel can enter data into the Global Freight Management (GFM) System.
- Units will be informed of additional charges that occur due to commercial trucks being delayed during loading and unloading. Detention charges beginning two hours after the commercial carrier arrives for loading/unloading. The unit budget analysis will be contacted to provide the TAC for detention charges.
- When planning out-loading, the first step is to determine the equipment to be shipped. Formulate a list of equipment to include length, weight, height, cube and weight. The TB 55-46-1, standard Characteristics (Dimensions, weights and Cube) for Transportability of Military Vehicles and other outsize/overweight equipment should be checked. Equipment should be listed in reduced dimensions. However, for ISU-90, shelters or any other secondary loads the total height must be listed.
- Dimensions for motor carriers can be up to 8 feet wide and 138 inches high, ground up, before having to obtain special state highway permits. Mirrors should be folded in and antennas lowered. Anything that protrudes and can easily be damaged should be removed. Canvas must be taped or tied down securely. Windshields are usually covered with thick cardboard and taped securely. Cardboard may prevent damage from a thrown rock or other flying objects.
- Prime movers should be matched with trailers or towed items. The towed items should be detached and the tongues moved up under the prime mover for more space.
- Fuel tanks on vehicles being shipped should be no more than three-fourths full or IAW Port Call requirements. All fuel cans must be empty as well as tank and pump units, (residual fuel require a hazmat certification). All out-loading of rolling stock will be staged and loaded at the old railhead.
Freight will complete a cost estimate within 48 hours of receiving the request. The cost will be annotated on the shipping request form and returned to the customer. Once the unit has the appropriate TAC with the Budget Analysis signature it will be returned to Freight for shipment processing.
