DEGREE Rail  freight Air  freight Motor  truck Freight   forwarders Ships  of  United  States  registry Ships  of  foreign  registry Small parcel carriers (e.g., USPS, Federal Express). OF  PROTECTION The  degree  of  protection  given  or  required  for packaging and packing to meet anticipated shipping conditions. Protection levels are defined as Levels A, B,  and  C.  The  level  of  packaging  and  packing  of  a shipment  is  marked  on  exterior  activities  of  the  level provided.   An   exterior   containers   in   appropriate combinations to inform the receiving activities of the level  provided.  An  exterior  shipping  container  marked C/C  indicates  the  packaging  (first  letter)  and  packing (second letter) are both Level C. LEVEL  A—  The  degree  required  to  protect  against the most severe conditions that may be encountered during  shipment,  handling,  and  storage. LEVEL B—The degree required for protection when the condition areto be less severe than those requiring Level A, but more severe than time for which Level C is adequate. LEVEL  C—The  degree  required  for  protection under known favorable conditions during shipment, handling,  and  limited  storage.  Repairable  must  be given Level C protection since guarded handling is mandatory and the designated overhaul point is known. TRANSPORTATION  PRIORITIES DOD  Instruction  4410.6  established  a  Uniform Material   Movement   and   Issue   Priority   System (UMMIPS)  for  the  requisitioning  and  movement  of material within the DOD distribution system. The policy and criteria established by UMMIPS for determining and observing the priority of material movement by shipping activities   is   implemented   in   DOD   MILSTAMP Regulation.  Transportation  priorities  (TPs)  and movement criteria for material not covered by UMMIPS are  included  in  MILSTAMP  for  the  purpose  of expressing uniformity of demands for transportation service  upon  the  Defense  Transportation  System  (DTS). The  UMMIPS  time  standards  imply  that  highspeed transportation   may   be   necessary   to   meet   the requirements  of  operating  forces  for  high-priority material  demands  (priority  designators  01-08).  Under these  conditions,  the  basic  objective  is  to  satisfy customer  demands  on  time,  without  operating  and transportation costs becoming an overriding factor. Transportation  priorities  are  normally  assigned  based on the priority designator of the requirement being shipped. Table 14-1 shows the relationship between priority  designators  and  transportation  priorities. TRANSPORTATION  PRIORITIES  WILL  NOT  BE UPGRADED except by specific modification to original supply    demands.   “EXPEDITED    HANDLING” shipments  (UMMIPS  priorities  01-03  with  code  ‘999” indicated in the RDD field of the requisition) will be afforded the highest precedence of handling prescribed in this regulation, overriding all other priorities, projects, and RDDs. In addition to the three TPs just mentioned TP4 is used in MAC airlift for deferred airfreight on the basis as authorized  by  MILSTAMP. MILSTAMP  AIR  SHIPMENT Air shipment within DTS is normally limited to transportation  priorities  1  and  2  (PD  01-08)  shipments. However,   transportation   priority   3   (PD   09-15) shipments   with   advanced   RDDs   may   qualify. Naturally, air shipment would be used if it were more economical   or   if   surface   transportation   were   not available.  The  three  major  military  airlift  systems  used by the Navy are the Military Airlift Command (MAC), QUICKTRANS,  and  Fleet  Logistics  Airlift  System. PACKAGING   REPAIRABLE The objectives of the mandatory turn-in repairable program  are  to  expedite  the  immediate  return  of repairable,  and  to  provide  adequate  packaging  that  will Table 14-1.-Relationship Between UMMIPS Issue Priority Designators  (PD)  and  MILSTAMP  Transportation  Priorities  (TP) 14-16
