Shipments exceeding 40,000lbs will require special permits (i.e. weight, height, width) and will be handled on a case by case basis. Outbound transportation documentation responsibilities include the preparation of Military Shipping labels (DD Form 1387), Signature And Tally Record (DD Form 1907), Commercial Bill Of Lading, Government Bills Of Lading (Standard Form 1103) and Transportation Control and Movement Documents (TCMD); DD Form 1384 in compliance with Military Standard Transportation and Movement Procedures (MILSTAMP) and Defense Transportation Regulation (DTR) 4500.9R, for all outbound freight shipped from MCAS Miramar, the Distribution Management Office will determine the mode of transportation required for each shipment and ensure compliance with proper packing, packaging and preservation requirements, prices and records, applicable transportation costs in accordance with appropriate transportation priority. All cargo must go through PP&P section for packaging and hazardous material certification. The PP&P section ensures that the initial documentation (DD Form 1348-1 or DD Form 1149) corresponds with the stenciling on the cargo. If the cargo requires special handling or hazardous classification, it must also be accompanied by a Shipper’s Declaration to be completed by PP&P or a qualified hazardous certified person. If the cargo is hazardous, the section ensures that the information on the key block is verified and correct. If discrepancies are noted with the shipper's declaration, the cargo is rejected until the corrections are made.
