Auto reweigh: IT-22 505.1.3.a
Our office will communicate with the DA at 3 different points to advise of a reweigh requirement: once initially determined, during scheduling delivery process, and lastly 24hrs prior to scheduled delivery date.
Failure to reweigh:
As with domestic, wording was added to the IT to say "If a reweigh was not performed, and the weight exceeds the customer's entitlement, TSP can only seek payment up to 110% of the customer's weight entitlement."
Auto Reweigh requirements have changed:
All UB shipments weighing 500 lbs or more are still required to be reweighed. For HHG shipments, grades E-6 thru O-10 are automatically required to be reweighed if the original weight is 7000 lbs or more. For grades E-1 thru E-5, HHG shipments weighing 4000 lbs or more are required to be reweighed.
Accurate Pre-move Survey: Tender of Service C.1.j.2
Weight estimates during the pre-move survey must now be accurate within 10% of actual shipment weight. Our office will communicate with the OA if the difference between surveyed and actual weight is >10% to determine the reason for the discrepancy. We will update DPS accordingly.
