of items of a single lot stacked together. Lot segregation involves providing a separation space
between lots. Segregation clarifies lot identity, simplifies inventory, and expedites issues.
(a) One of the major reasons for rewarehousing is to consolidate lots of ammunition. Through
issuing operations the storage site may have diminished assets of the same lot at different
locations to the point that they could be consolidated at one site. Inbound shipments may
include lots of ammunition currently in storage at your site.
(b) It is not mandatory to rewarehouse suspended ammunition, unless instructed to do so in the
During rewarehousing operations is the ideal time to consider
rewarehousing suspended stocks to a central location, as long as the item in question is not
suspended from issue, movement and use (SIMU). TB 9-1300-385 covers suspended
ammunition. In either case, stacks of suspended ammunition must be clearly marked on all
sides using DD Form 1575 (Suspension Label) or DD Form 1575-1 (Suspension Tag). The
DA Form 3020-R (Magazine Data Card) for each suspended lot must show the suspension
date, the suspension number, and the authority.
(c) Make sure all lots of ammunition are easily accessible by materials handling equipment
(MHE) and transportation assets.
b. Two more factors that should be considered when deciding to rewarehouse are protection of
ammunition items from the elements and physical security of selected items. These two factors
should deal primarily with items scheduled to arrive on inbound shipments. They are addressed here
because rewarehousing may be required to accommodate the items. A priority listing for items
requiring covered storage is in TM 9-1300-206, page 4.2. Physical security of pilferable items is an
important factor. The security risk categories identified in AR 190-11 are shown in the Appendix of
3. When the advanced shipment notice document arrives, the Stock Control and Storage sections and the
quality assurance specialist (ammunition surveillance) (QASAS) personnel coordinate to develop a
rewarehousing plan. Stock Control will review the advance shipment notice (report of shipment, or
repship). The repship may be provided in message format, or, as is normally the case, it will process
through the Standard Army Ammunition System (SAAS) in the form of an 80 column punch card, XBT
transaction. See Figure 1.
a. Regardless of the repship format, the Stock Control section will review the documents to determine
storage compatibility, identify stocks for possible consolidation, and compute net explosive weights
(NEW). They review Q-D requirements and site licensing to determine appropriate storage facilities.
b. The Storage section will coordinate with Transportation (if required) to position trailers for down
loading and removal to a holding area. Coordinate with host nation support for personnel assets (if
applicable). Coordinate MHE with operators. Coordinate with Supply for needed equipment and
(1) During this planning process the Stock Control section will be preparing planographs showing the
rewarehousing plan. There are three variations of planographs commonly used. Planographs
are contained in TM 743-200-1. DA Form 3260 is the planograph for igloo type storage facilities.
A completed copy of DA Form 3260 is shown as Figure 2, page 6. Note that the form reflects the
scale to be used drawn down the center. This form can be used with both 60- and 80-ft. igloos.
