It also prescribes standard data elements, codes, formats, documents, forms, rules, methods, and procedures required by DOD Components, other United States (US) Government Agencies/civil authorities, and users of the Canada-United States Integrated Lines of Communication in the transportation and movement of materiel to, within, and outside the Defense Transportation System (DTS).
