Under the military standard transportation and movement procedures (MILSTAMP), DD
Form 1384 (Transportation Control and Movement Document) controls all shipments
moving in the Defense Transportation System (DTS).
This form provides the
clearance authority with the advance intelligence needed to control cargo input
to the DTS; provides the transshipping activity with the advance notice required
to process cargo for onward movement; and is the source document for ocean and
air manifest and logistics management reports.
It may also be used as a dock
receipt, tally sheet, or highway waybill.
