USTRANSCOM Peak Season Call (12 May)

May 12, 2022

Please see notes and slides from today’s (12 May) Peak Season Call.  Of note, extending refusals past 30 June was discussed, as was the wood/packing material surcharge. 


On refusals, COL Gipson mentioned “there is no appetite to extend refusals.” 


On the topic of the wood/packing material surcharges, COL Gipson stated they expected TSPs to cover those costs in their rates; that they have noticed significant increases in rates that were filed this year; and that the Services don’t have an unlimited budget to continue to provide the surcharge. But she stated she would get with the Services and get their opinion on whether they would include them a little longer.
