MM3671, Lesson 3
Item 3. Check the Department of Transportation (DOT) markings for the proper shipping name. These markings
are found on the top of the box.
Be certain that the correct items are being shipped. The markings on the boxes that identify the item should agree
with the shipping document pertaining to the shipment.
When your inspection shows that the markings are correct, check SAT on the report. If you find that the markings
are not correct, check UNSAT and explain the defect in the Remarks column.
Item 4. Check the address label or address tag (figure 3-13). The address label is DD Form 1387 (Military
Shipment Label). It contains the 17-digit Transportation Control Number, the From and To airports, and other
shipping information. No label applied to the pallets can be put over any required identification on the containers.
