The Reference Pub.
(Reference Publication) will be NMFC and should be
written in this column. This indicates that the classification data was obtained
from the National Motor Freight Classification.
Now move on to Line 3 (see Figure 2-10). Again ensure that SHPT A is entered in
the first two columns. Then the True Shipping Name for the specific unit (214th

A will go by SEAVAN, the van number (serial no.
248375) and seal number
(23759783) found in Column 43 of the TCMD should be written in as a REMARK (see
Figure 2-11). The next section on the SPWS (Excessive Dimensions Data)(not shown

Transportation Request (TR)
Note that the cargo requested on the TR (see Figure 2-12) can also be included in
SHPT A (see Figure 2-13). Your personnel had enough information to tentatively
plan the shipment. They will finalize the data after a TCMD is issued. On Line
1, the Document Number and Supply Pack should be blank. The Total Packs should
be the number of tents (40). Under the fourth part of the TR, the BRAVO code is
.48; this is .48 of 1 ton (2000 pounds). Therefore the Total Weight should be
960 lbs (.48 x 2,000 = 960). The CHARLIE code on the TR shows the measurements
of one tent to be 48 x 36 x 24 inches. Therefore, 48/12 x 36/12 x 24/12 = 24
cubic feet. One tent measures 24 cubic feet, so the cube for all 40 tents should
be 960 cubic feet. Ensure that this is entered in the Total Cube column. The
RDD (on the TR) is 30 June.
Your personnel should have changed this to the

two columns should be blank. The Destination in the Clear Name again comes from
the heading of the TR (FROM).
Now go to Line 2 on the SPWS. In the Nomenclature column, the requested cargo
