Engineering for Transportability Program
|Publication Date:||11 January 2019|
This regulation sets policy for the Engineering for Transportability Program, requirements for transportability assessment, and approvals for transportability problem items (TPIs). TPIs are materiel in its shipping configuration which, because of its size, weight, fragile, or hazardous characteristics or lack of adequate means for lifting and tiedown, will be denied movement, will require special permits or waivers and special equipment or handling, or will be unacceptably delayed when moving within existing or newly designed transportation systems. All new systems, major modifications, upgrades to current systems, nondevelopmental items, commercial items, and reprocurements designated as TPIs must obtain transportability approval from the Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command Transportation Engineering Agency (SDDCTEA) per DODI 4540.07 and AR 70-1.
