2023 Base Access Reminders

March is here!

It's that time of year when we should start aggressively preparing for Peak Season. The first step is to make sure your drivers and crews have the proper base access. General information on that procedure can be found in our previous memo Motor Carrier Installation Access June 2022.

We also have been advised of a few installations with unique entry requirements as follows:

  • Bangor Trident Naval Base in Silverdale, WA: This base has very strict rules regarding how they allow civilians to access the base. The military member or spouse MUST ALWAYS meet the crews at the gate to be escorted on and off the base. They are VERY strict about this. Make sure to remind the customer about this prior to your arrival.

  • Eglin AFB: NORTH GATE CLOSURE: The North Gate (Commercial Vehicle Inspection Gate) will be closed on all Federal Holidays, Sundays, and all AFMC down days identified below.  Crews will be turned away if attempting entry during these times. (Additionally, Saturdays the North Gate is open from 0600-1200.

Please ensure the form is completely filled out prior to submission. Any questions about the process or form should be addressed to the NAWS China Lake Pass and ID office at (760) 939-3160 or (760) 939-3154.
