USTRANSCOM J9 Conditions Based Movement Call (2 Nov)

November 02, 2021

Please see attached notes and slides from today’s (2 Nov) USTC industry/Services/JPPSO call.   A couple of items of interest to note:


Following up from last week’s comments about using a “blanket” statement about denying inconvenience claims due to an “act of god”, Col Safranek stated, We’ve seen some blanket statements on not paying inconvenience claims due to supply chain issues.  Don’t agree with the blanket excuse. If you have specific issues on a specific shipment, by all means submit that and we’ll go over it on a case-by-case basis. 


Additionally, a question was asked about whether the GHC announcement was “on track” for 4 November.  Col Safranek stated they expect GHC announcement on the 4th of November at earliest. He also stated “As we get past the announcement, we can move forward with more specificity on details of timing, etc.” 


Be sure you file your CIP and COR in a timely manner. Per the advisory, USTC states they will not provide additional messaging that the CIP and COR are due.
