Based on the strong expression of interest by IAM members, the association provided information that may be useful to the industry related to digital inventory products.

JPPSO NC (KKFA) Job Board Posted on IAM's Website at iamovers.org

­

In coordination with JPPSO NC, we have posted their “job board” for DoD personal property shipments that were not awarded to TSPs via the normal shipment award process; and are therefore now available via the job board. You can find this daily list of shipments online. If you’d rather navigate to it via the IAM home page, you can click on “News & Events” and then select “JPPSO NC Job Board.”
