PART B - CHECK THE UNIT SOP AND CONTINGENCY PLAN
Check the unit SOP or the contingency plan (unit movement plan) for
the classification of the motor movement.
An extract of FM 55-30,
showing a sample of a unit movement SOP is in Appendix B (see page
142). The unit movement plan and SOP based on the operations order
and contingency plan are developed and maintained for all motor
movements. When reviewing the SOP, find the section that is labeled
security (see Appendix B, page 146).
This section will provide you
with the security that will be required during the movement.
example, you may be required to have security forces attached to the
convoy due to the enemy situation, weapons and ammunition to be
carried, or because of the cargo being moved.
By reviewing the
elements in this section, you will be able to determine if limited
security or maximum security is required for the movement. The unit
movement plan identifies administrative requirements, personnel
implementation. The movement plan also includes vehicle preparation,
procedures, duties and responsibilities of unit personnel, and
movement data. The movement data includes:
Number and type of troops.
Weight, length, width, and height of items to be air-lifted.
Names and descriptions of outsized, unusual, and hazardous
material to be air-lifted.
This information includes the
gross weight of each vehicle, item, container, and loaded
pallet as determined by the unit.
If you have any doubts or questions about the security classification
of the movement after examining the contingency plan or unit SOP,
check with HTH.
Also, request security classification from HTH if
you cannot find it on these documents. Once you have determined the
security classification of the movement, you must ensure that all
plans, documents, and operations comply with one another and also
with the movement security classification.
When planning the move,
ensure that all planning, documentation, and operations also comply
with security regulations.
PART C -CHECK THE CARGO LIST OR DOCUMENTATION
Check the cargo list or documentation for any classified cargo, such
as sensitive cargo and controlled cargo. The cargo documentation may
show that the cargo is classified.
According to DOD Reg 4500.32-R,
Volume I, sensitive cargo is defined as small arms, ammunition, and
