10 Transit Times
10.1      Overview
This section provides transit times for both domestic and international Household Goods (HHG)
shipments moved in accordance with the provisions of this Household Goods Tender of Service
(HTOS). This includes shipments delivered directly to a residence or delivered to storage at
destination.

The transit times in this section are the maximum number of transit days allowed. Transit times
may be waived in writing by the Responsible Transportation Officer (RTO).

Transportation Service Providers (TSPs) should refer to the Request for Offers (RFO) for special
transit times required by specific Federal agencies.

10.1.1         Measurement of Transit Time
Transit time will be measured in calendar days from the date loading is completed to the date
on which the shipment is offered for delivery at the residence. When the last day of the transit
time falls on Saturday, Sunday, a local or a Federal holiday, then the next United States
Government business day will be considered the last day of transit. In the event storage-in-
transit (SIT) occurs at origin, transit time will be measured based on the transportation from the
point of SIT to the delivery residence.

The transit times are based on the assumption that a TSP shall be given a minimum of five (5)
business days’ notice before the pick-up date of shipment. If less than five (5) business days’
notice is given the TSP, the transit times will be increased by one (1) business day for each day
under the five (5) business day notice period.

10.2      Domestic Transit Times
Section 10.2.1 defines the allowable transit times for HHG shipments moving between
Continental United States (CONUS) locations, and between CONUS and Canada locations.

The transit time for a Privately Owned Vehicle (POV) is the same as that for other HHG
shipments, except for the locations shown in Section 10.3.

A transit time penalty applies if the TSP fails to meet the POV transit time specified in this
section or Section 10.3. The TSP shall notify the applicable department or agency within 24
hours of any expected delay. Also, the TSP shall arrange for the employee’s use of a rental car
at the TSP’s expense. The rental must be the same, or comparable, size/model as the POV the

10.4      International Transit Times

10.4.1     Between any State, Trust Territory, or Possession of the
      United States and Named Countries
The transit times in this Section 10.4.4 apply to HHG shipments picked up and delivered
between any State, Trust Territory, or Possession of the United States and the named countries.
These are the maximum transit times in calendar days applying to international shipments
unless waived by the RTO in writing.

10.4.2        Between International Locations
The transit time for HHG shipments going between international locations is limited to sixty (60)
calendar days. The RTO may adjust this time in writing.

10.4.3        POVs
The transit time for a POV is the same as that for other HHG shipments.

A transit time penalty applies if the TSP fails to meet the POV transit time specified in this
section or Section 10.3. The TSP shall notify the applicable department or agency within 24
hours of any expected delay. Also, the TSP shall arrange for the employee’s use of a rental car
at the TSP’s expense. The rental must be the same, or comparable, size/model as the POV the
employee shipped. The RTO may waive this penalty in whole or in part based on the
circumstances of the delay.

10.4.4        International Transit Time Table
Entries in the following table are the allowable number of calendar days of transit time for HHG
shipments between any State, Trust Territory, or Possession of the United States and the
named countries. This table includes the GSA reporting codes (see Appendix D) for cross
reference purposes.
