POV shipping program undergoes changes

SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill (AFNS) -- The Department of Defense’s privately owned vehicle shipping program will undergo several changes starting May 1.

Several vehicle processing centers, where privately owned vehicles are dropped off and picked up, will relocate.

With the exception of eight cities that will close their vehicle processing locations, many others will remain in the same city, but provide services at a different location and street address. Others, primarily overseas, will continue to operate at the same address and location, simply under new management.

In addition, a new website, www.pcsmypov.com, has been established for service members to request and track their POV shipments.

A new contractor will manage daily vehicle processing at vehicle processing centers worldwide.

International Auto Logistics will assume the contract from American Auto Logistics to manage the daily activities associated with the POV contract for processing service member’s vehicles worldwide.

“Our goal is for a seamless transition between providers, and we are engaged in daily meetings with International Auto Logistics to ensure as smooth a transition as possible,” said Navy Capt. Aaron Stanley, the director of the personal property directorate for the Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command.

“Likewise, we don't foresee the need for any major changes in the process used to ship/store privately owned vehicles,” Stanley added.

Eight of the current 46 VPCs will permanently close May 1 in both U.S. and overseas locations.

VPCs slated for closure in the U.S. are located in New Orleans, La; Edison, N.J.; Orlando, Fla.; and Oakland, Calif.

Overseas vehicle processing centers that are now closed, or are slated for closure include Mannheim, Germany (closed); RAF Croughton, England; RAF Menwith Hill, England; and Seville, Spain.

“It is important to note that American Auto Logistics will still be on hand at these eight VPC locations until Aug. 1 to service already processed vehicles until each VPC becomes empty,” said Craig McKinley, the supervisory transportation management specialist for the personal property directorate. “These eight VPCs on the closure list will not accept new vehicles for processing after April 30.”

Additionally, AAL’s website, www.whereismypov.com, will remain active until all vehicles in their possession have been delivered.

For more information, service members are asked to either contact their transportation office or personal property office, or starting May 1, customers desiring to ship their privately owned vehicle should call to make an appointment at a vehicle processing center.

For U.S. domestic appointments: 855-389-9499

For appointments in Germany: 0800-227-7447

For any other locations: 00800-227-7447
