USTRANSCOM Peak Season Call (4 May)

May 04, 2023

Attached are slides and notes from today’s (4 May) Peak Season Call.  As usual, the slide Password is USTRANSCOM.  There is no Thursday afternoon call until next week (11 May).


Of note, I had problems getting on the call on time, and so missed some of the early questions/comments from the call.  And had audio issues and had trouble hearing. So I captured less of the conversations this week.


Quick updates of interest included in the notes attachment:


  • TRANSCOM is coordinating COVID Protocol policy update with the Services. Hope to have an update by next week.
  • When asked TRANSCOM and the Services say there is no backlog of shipments waiting to be counseled or booked in the system.
  • The updated Non-Temp Storage tender of service modification that goes into effect 15 May has not yet been signed by 24% of the NTS providers. That has to happen by 15 May or those providers will be suspended.
