LOADING THE SHIPMENT
When a vehicle arrives at the ASP to pick up a shipment of ammunition, the loading operation begins. The DA
Form 3151-R and the DD Form 1384 for that particular shipment are pulled from the suspense file. The loading
operation is checked using these forms to ensure compliance with applicable directives and safety regulations.
The best way to check the loading operating is to be present throughout the entire operation. This practice will
provide the greatest assurance of load stability, compatibility, economy, and public safety.
As an ammunition officer, you must ensure that certain conditions are met before, during, and after the loading
operation. These conditions include, but are not limited to, the following:
Check the manifest.
Use DD Form 626 (Vehicle Inspection).
Identify fire hazard associated with the load.
Check fire division symbols and DOT placards.
Check compatibility of the load.
Check blocking and bracing.
Use DD Form 836 (Special Instructions for Motor Vehicle Drivers).
Check the Manifest
At the loading site, check DD Form 1384 (manifest). See Figure 1-8, Page 1-13. It contains information you need
to start your loading operations check. Look for the following information on the manifest:
UNO shipping name (Doc Id TE9). This name may be verified by using TM 9-1300-206 or BOE 6000. At
this time, also verify compatibility and the fire hazard class that pertains to the UNO shipping name.
NEW and quantity by weight and cube (Doc Id TE7).
Block 9. PLT indicates that the items to be shipped are loaded on pallets.
