ROUTING FOR CARGO
Routing is defined as an order issued by a routing officer specifying
the mode of transportation and the means within that mode by which
shipment will move.
Responsibility for determining transport routing for cargo depends on
the nature of the cargo and the transportation environment. You are
responsible for routing shipments of Class C explosives that weigh
less than 10,000 pounds. The MTMC Area Command routes Class A and B
explosives and all shipments weighing more than 10,000 pounds.
In situations where MTMC is responsible for routing the shipment, you
must call the MTMC Area Command and inform them you need a route
order. To issue a route order, MTMC must know the preferred mode of
transport and the level of security service required by the shipment.
The MTMC Area Command will process your request and issue a route
order. A route order contains the following information:
Name(s) of the carrier(s) to be used and contact information
for the carrier(s).
Junction points required by the shipment.
Miscellaneous instructions required for the proper forwarding
of the shipment.
The period for which the route order is valid.
If your unit routinely ships cargo requiring security services, the
MTMC Area command may issue a standing route order that is valid for
all shipments to a particular consignee for a specified period.
