SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

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.

Rail ITV data is now purchased from a contractor, along with rail ITV services. Some of the data is transmitted to the Global Tracking Network (GTN), but most of it resides in the contractor's database and is accessible only using the contractor's software. When contracts are rebid, the former contractor is tasked to transfer recent data to the new contractor. Section C, Item 180, ensures this transfer takes place.

Miscellaneous: This publication, as well as the other SDDC publications, can be accessed via the SDDC Web site at: http://www.sddc.army.mil/​Public/​Global%20Cargo%20Distribution/​Domestic/​Publications/​.
