Shipments To Government Consolidation Points

This notice is being issued to ensure complete and accurate address markings are used on all shipments routed through the Government Container Consolidation Points (CCPs) which are listed below. Shipments to these locations are being consolidated for onward movement overseas. Lack of complete and accurate address markings are causing frustrated, lost and misdirected shipments for our overseas customers.

W25N14/SW3123 - New Cumberland, PA
XU CONSOL AND CONTAINERIZATION PT
DDSP NEW CUMBERLAND FACILITY
BLDG 2001 CCP DOOR 135 THRU 168
NEW CUMBERLAND PA 17070-5001

W62N2A/SW3225 - Tracy, CA
XU Def DIST DEPOT SAN JOAQUIN
CCP WHSE 30
25600 SOUTH CHRISMAN RD
TRACY CA 95376-5000

Shipments to these locations must meet the Mil-Std-129 requirement for a bar coded Military Shipping Label. In addition, a packing slip must be placed in a water-resistant envelope securely attached to the outside of the shipping container/exterior pack. The Mark For and/or TCN must be clearly visible on all documentation to ensure accurate and prompt identification by the CCP.

Do not pack several boxes, going to different overseas customers into one large box addressed to the CCP. The CCP does not open packages, and has no way of knowing if shipments to multiple locations are packed together. Only the outside markings are used to determine the destination. For example: Three shipments are placed in one box (one for W81W4C Kuwait, one for FB5682 Germany and one for FB5612 Italy), and the Mark For and TCN on the outside reads W81W4C21930009, all the contents go to Kuwait! That one customer in Kuwait will receive their shipment plus shipments intended for our troops in Germany and Italy.

Remember:

  1. Only consolidate when the ultimate consignee DoDAAC, the Transportation Priority (TP), and the project codes are identical,
  2. The Mark For (M/F) and TCN must be clearly visible on the outside of the container (Military Shipping Label) as well as on the paperwork inside the container.

Importance of Packaging and Marking Supporting OCONUS Shipments
Packaging, marking, and labeling are more important now, due to the deployment of troops overseas. High priority shipments to deployed troops may be misrouted and delayed due to improper packaging, marking, and labeling. Contractors should make sure their shipments meet the requirements in Section D of their contracts to avoid damaging material and misrouting shipments. Shipments routed through the Defense Transportation Service are considered OCONUS and require a Military Shipping Label in accordance with MIL-STD-129. This includes shipments going through the Consolidation and Containerization Points (CCPs) at Defense Distribution Centers in New Cumberland, PA (W25N14/SW3123) and Tracy, CA (W62N2A/SW3225), Aerial Ports of Embarkation (APOE) at Dover, DE; Charleston, SC; Norfolk, VA; Travis, CA; and McGuire AFB, NJ, and the Containerization Freight Station (CFS) at Norfolk, VA, and any Government water ports of entry (WPOEs).
