2-6. Determining Delivery Options, Continued
Priorities must be observed during movement control to avoid priority abuse. If
priorities are not properly observed, priority abuse results in:
Overload of priority 1 cargo.
Failure of transportation assets to support the RDD.
Development of a crisis management atmosphere.
These are some guidelines for avoiding priority abuse:
Establish a percentage limitation on TP 1 requests.
Challenge the customer at both origin and destination to determine the
importance of the cargo.
Ensure that the MCT develops and maintains customer information programs
and customer liaison programs.
