Approval Requirements

Transportation Service Providers (TSPs) who apply to participate in GSA's Centralized Household Goods Traffic Management Program (CHAMP) are stringently evaluated and assessed. 

TSPs must complete an approval application package and then be approved to participate in the CHAMP program. TSPs qualify on financial stability, business experience, quality assurance, and knowledge of the Household Goods Tender of Service (HTOS).

Upon approval, a TSP may file rates within its authorized scope during open window filing periods. TSPs may apply to transport either domestic or international shipments or both. GSA's domestic services under CHAMP cover the movement of household goods of relocating federal civilian agency employees within the conterminous United States, including Alaska and Canada. International services under CHAMP apply to door-to-door container movement of household goods in lift vans between the conterminous United States (including Alaska and Canada) and an international country or between two international countries. A TSP must provide complete through service from origin residence to destination residence by surface ocean means.
