This thesis attempts to prove that cost-savings are attainable within the present Department of Defense Household Goods Personal Property Movement System. Using a sample population of officers attending the Naval Postgraduate School, the author evaluates personal property moves within the continental United States and focuses primarily on accessorial services, which include packing/loading and unloading/unpacking, for the purpose of presenting a moving option regarding unpacking at shipment destination. Two alternatives are proposed that have the potential to yield substantial dollar savings to the government.
