United States Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM), DoD.
DoD has developed a Concept of Operations (CONOPS) to test expansion of the personal property volume move criteria to include select high-volume channel/traffic lanes. Under the pilot test, personal property shipments will be awarded both directions (to/from) by the responsible origin/destination Joint Personal Property Shipping Office (JPPSO) on the participating pilot lanes. The CONOPS was developed utilizing general traffic management principles in concert with the Defense Transportation Regulation (DTR) Part IV (DTR 4500.9R), and Government household goods tariff (400NG) (as amended).
