Reference: Military Freight Traffic Unified Rules Publications (MFTURP) No. 1.

Background: The MFTURP No. 1 governs the purchase of surface freight transportation in the Continental United States (CONUS) by DoD using Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) exempt transportation service contracts.

Motor Surveillance Service (MVS) has been removed from the MFTURP-1 because it is a Transportation Protective Service (TPS) that is no longer used.

Trailer Tracking Service (DCS) is a new TPS that augments Satellite Monitoring Service (SNS) for Security Risk Category (SRC) I-IV motor shipments travelling via closed-box-van trailers. SNS only allows the Defense Transportation Tracking System (DTTS) to track a Transportation Service Provider's (TSP) tractor. With the addition of DCS, DTTS will now be alerted if the closed-box-van trailer has been unhooked from the tractor or if the trailer's door has been opened while in transit.

The Satellite Motor Surveillance Service verbiage has been updated in order to reflect current SNS operating procedures.
