TMO: PCS Season Has Begun

Permanent Change of Station season is already underway, and the Traffic Management Office is reminding all who are slated to move to contact them as early as possible. There is only one authorized moving company in the area, so the sooner you engage with TMO, the more likely you are to get your desired move date.

JPPSO has been receiving a lot of short notice shipments.  Please enforce a 3 weeks’ notice for ALL shipments with and through your local TMO.  Shipments requiring pick up in less than 3 weeks must be coordinated with the applicable JPPSO prior to submission (NOTE: Excludes applications for tech training students).  Lastly, please include an alternate pack/pick up dates from customers on ALL shipments.
