PREPARATION OF EQUIPMENT FOR SHIPMENT - Continued
a. Refer to TM 38-400 and FM 4-01.011 for additional instructions on processing, storage, and shipment
Semitrailers that have been removed from storage for shipment do not have to be reprocessed if they
will reach their destination within the administrative storage period. Reprocess only if inspection
reveals any corrosion, or if anticipated in-transit weather conditions make it necessary.
When a semitrailer is received and has already been processed for domestic shipment, as indicated
on DD Form 1397, the semitrailer does not have to be reprocessed for storage unless corrosion and
deterioration is found during the inspection upon receipt. List on SF 364 all discrepancies found
because of poor preservation, packaging, packing, marking, handling, loading, storage, or excessive
preservation. Repairs that cannot be handled by the receiving unit must have tags attached listing
needed repairs. A report of these conditions will be submitted by the unit commander for action
by an ordnance maintenance unit.
