Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

Why ship MWR/NAF materials under this contract?
Tom Miller, AFNAF Purchasing and Management Support, San Antonio, TX

"As we moved toward the 21st century, the requirements for total control and budgetary savings increased for all of us. AFNAFPO has responded by putting in place the final link in the NAF logistics cycle; a full scope, worldwide transportation management contract. This contract provides NAFI's throughout the world with quality commercial transportation services, immediate and consistent freight savings and full accountability for all shipments in the system.

Under the contract, each NAFI will gain control of their shipments while saving transportation dollars. Each shipment will be tracked from origin to destination. MMI will route your shipments, provide substantial discounts on freight rates, and even file claims on your behalf against carriers for lost or damaged shipments. It is our hope each NAFI will use this contract for all FOB: Origin orders."

Who can use this contract?

This contract is open to all US Government Department of Defense Activities. Air Force, Navy and Army MWR/NAF activities throughout the world have been using the contract on a direct basis for the last 12 years. AFNAFPO utilizes the contract for all FOB: Origin orders that exceed parcel post and UPS restrictions.

What are some examples of "consistent freight savings" and why should I bother to use the contract?

In simple terms, suppliers and/or manufacturers are primarily interested in selling product. On FOB: Origin orders, freight is not the main concern. Generally, little effort is made by a supplier in selecting a carrier when the freight charges are to be "Prepaid and Added." Factors such as on-time performance, damage control and cost may not be looked at as intensely when selecting the carrier for your shipment.

The contract asks your supplier to contact MMI when they are ready to ship. MMI selects the carrier, sends the supplier bill of lading and marking information, insures that the supplier's documents are in order and moves the cargo through to destination. MMI provides discounted service and, in the event of damage or loss of goods, MMI files claims on your behalf. Our primary focus is to provide each base or activity with documented savings and reliable service.

Examples of Problems MMI will solve

We are an overseas activity. We use the DTS system and have been experiencing delays and lost shipments at the New Cumberland, PA consolidation point. Some shipments take between 60-90 days to reach the ordering activity. Some shipments are lost and I must reorder and double pay. How can the contract help me?

The contract can help you in three different ways.

  1. Under the contract, MMI provides for alternatives to the DTS system. We presently perform commercial consolidations in Seattle, WA, Los Angeles, CA, and Norfolk, VA. We also can ship directly, door-to-door to the majority of base locations throughout the world. We have been extremely successful in providing this direct service on an air and ocean transportation basis.
  2. For an additional cost (call for a quote), most activities enjoy fully insured, 30 day door-to-door ocean or 4-6 day air service. When your shipment moves commercially with MMI, it is always 100% insured for loss or damage.
  3. Thirdly, we can order DTS containers for your shipment and load them directly at your suppliers. This bypasses the consolidation and speeds up the process. Our fee for this service is $135 per container.
