Moving soon? New system easy, efficient, saves government money

In the past year, big changes have been implemented in order to improve the management and movement of household goods and other personal property. The Department of Defense, via the U.S. Transportation Command and Surface Deployment and Distribution Command, has launched the Defense Personal Property System to conveniently and efficiently facilitate the management of moving household goods and personal property. DPS intends to automate the many steps involved in military moves such as: pre-move counseling, scheduling, tracking, invoicing and claims-filing. In addition to convenience, DPS has already shown initial cost savings and that's great for the military which spends about $2 billion a year for more than 550,000 household moves. Full Story
