As the driver for this shipment, it’s very important to note that this is a Bluebark Shipment for a deceased military member.  Handling a Bluebark Shipment is an enormous responsibility and an opportunity for us to go the extra mile for someone that has given his or her life while serving our country.  Please ensure that you follow these requirements:

  1. Keep our Operations Department updated with any and all changes to your ETA
  2. Work with the Destination Agent to hire quality and professional labor or prepare for the eventuality that SIT may be needed.
  3. If the shipment is cleared to deliver direct to residence, please wait for the base representative before unloading if one is going to be available.

Please ensure that your crew is aware of the situation and treats the customer with the utmost respect and dignity.  Finally, if you aren’t sure of what to do, at any time, please contact our Operations Department at 800-722-9144 or

Thank you for your assistance.
