Timely receipt of notices by the consignee transportation office precludes the incurring of demurrage and vehicle detention charges. The information is used to alert the receiving activity of the arrival of a large shipment.

Respondents: 250.

Responses per Respondent: 4.

Annual Responses: 1,000.

Hours per Response: .167.

Total Burden Hours: 167.
