USTRANSCOM J9 Conditions Based Movement Call (1 June)

June 01, 2021

The 1 June Conditions-Based Movement call with the moving industry and DoD covered the standard read-ahead slides. Please see the associated notes from the call. 

 

The DoD is still focused on preventing a large number of turnbacks they are experiencing this summer, and asking TSPs to engage the PPSOs earlier in the process if they can’t service a shipment, as opposed to holding on too long, which puts the member in an even worse position in terms of getting out of housing on schedule, making it to training, etc.  Additionally, the TRANSCOM Deputy Commender, VADM Mewbourne, was interested in the large number of refusals, the reason behind turnbacks, and whether the assembled crowd believed we were seeing an earlier peak season than recent years.
