Occasionally it is necessary to hold shipments. A case in point might be when
complete diversion data to include the new consignee and fund citation are not
available. However, not all shipment situations justify a shipment being held for
a new consignee. Activities may issue shipment hold authorizations which direct
that a shipment be held for a new disposition. The transportation officer must be
able to ensure that the hold documentation is properly completed and that the hold
is justified. Afterward the officer must ensure that the documentation used to
either confirm or deny the request for hold has been properly completed.
