How to Prevent Delays in Shipments (Frustrated Freight)

Vendor shipments that are not marked, labeled or packaged properly are often delayed in transit, resulting in “Frustrated Freight.” This is true of all deliveries, but is particularly important for destinations Outside the Contiguous United States (OCONUS) that are shipped via the DLA transportation network. To assist vendors, we have posted relevant regulations, along with sample shipping labels and other easy-to-understand guidance on how you can avoid frustrated freight.
