The reference used in the development of this lesson was DoD 4200.32-R,
Military Standard Transportation and Movement Procedures (MILSTAMP)
Change 6, dated May 1995.
Occasionally it is necessary or desirable to divert shipments from the original
consignee to a new one. To do so the transportation officer must be able to ensure
that the diversion documentation is properly completed and that the diversion is
justified. Afterward the officer must ensure that the documentation used to either
confirm or deny the request for diversion has been properly completed.
Shipment diversion is the rerouting of cargo or passengers to a new transshipment
point, destination, or a different transportation mode before the shipment arrives
at its final destination.
Transportation officers assigned to a POE/POD Movement Control Center (MCC)
must ensure that at least one of the following conditions occurs before an activity
requests a shipment diversion:
A supply cancellation.
Termination of a project.
