Correct Answer and Feedback
The TR should be submitted as far in advance of the shipping date as
possible, an MCC is not normally established just to support special cargo,
there is no such thing as a destination STON, and the TR should be
submitted in the approved format. Page 2-3.
The consignor submits a surface transportation request when unit or direct
support assets are not available, a convoy clearance or road movement
bid/credits are requested when assets e available, and air transportation
requests are not for road assets. Page 2-4.
Once the TR is received by the origin MCT the movement manager must
coordinate the request by reviewing the consignor TR for accuracy and
completeness, determining the mode of transport and notifying the
destination MCT of the shipment, assigning a TMR number, and notifying
the consignor and mode operator that the TMR has been received. Page 2-
The movement manager must review the TR to ensure it has adequate
information to determine if enough transportation equipment is available
to meet both the programmed requirements and this request. Page 2-7.
The TMR number accounts for the transportation assets during movement.
The issuance of TMRs has been decentralized to local MCTs. Page 2-9.
The preferred mode of transportation is air for transportation priority 1 and
2. Page 2-10 and 2-11.
TP 3 shipments which normally move by surface transportation might
move by air when air transportation is the only mode available between
the consignor and the consignee. Page 2-12.
