As most of you know, DOD issued a directive stopping all Permanent Change of Station (PCS) moves for DOD military and civilian personnel through May 11, 2020 due to COVID-19. Please read the full advisory here.
At this time, all HHG’s packing or loading after Saturday, March 14 will stop movement, with the exception of shipments for retirees/separates. Again, TSP/Agents should take no action on any scheduled pick-up/pack-outs on or after March 14 unless directed otherwise.
Deliveries of household goods, unaccompanied baggage, and non-temporary storage lots (including transfer of custody to new TSP) should continue as scheduled. Installation access procedures may change based on the COVID-19 crisis, TSPs and agents should contact local Transportation Offices to determine proper procedures. We understand the economic impact this has on our industry and will continue to update you as new information is released. We do not anticipate any slowdown in payments to our service providers assuming there is no delay in payment from the government. We have taken steps to mobilize our workforce and we will continue to operate in all segments of business. We encourage every one of you to take necessary precautions to keep you and your staff safe.
