Delivering the Army's Logistics Enterprise in Europe and Africa!



Welcome to Personal Property and POV!

The Transportation Offices' Personal Property and POV sections help coordinate and set up household good shipments, long-term-storage, short-term-storage  and Privately Owned Vehicle shipments and delivery within U.S. Army Europe locations. Personal Property and POV’s may be shipped at any time after official, PCS, Separation or Retirement orders/authorization are received. To increase the chances of having your persona property moved on the day wanted contact your PPPO office early. Pack days are usually a day or two before the actual pickup date of the shipment. To learn more check out the information below, or visit one of the following garrison's websites for more on newcomer information:  USAG Ansbach, USAG Bavaria, USAG Benelux, USAG Italy, USAG Rheinland-Pfalz, USAG StuttgartUSAG Wiesbaden.


Moving your Personal Property

Set up your storage and movement of personal property at your local PPO or “Self Counsel" using the Defense Personal property System, or DPS. What is needed:

  • A complete set of orders/authorization including amendments for each type of shipment planned. 
  • An idea of when you want to move, what type of shipments you want and an estimated weight. 
  • The date you plan to arrive at your new duty station. 
  • A letter of authorization signed by you or power of attorney if you are unable to visit the transportation office.  

Your transportation counselor will provide you with copies of all documentation associate with the movement and storage of your shipments at the Transportation Office.  If you performed “self-Counseling” in DPS, you receive a shipment summary prior to electronically submitting your application for shipment and storage to your responsible transportation office for review. You are then able to print the documentation created. If corrective actions are required on your part in DPS, your Transportation Office notifies you by phone or e-mail.  

To ensure quality control, at some time during packing, pickup and/or delivery a Quality Control Inspector from the local Transportation Office may drop by to check on the progress.  If you have any questions or concerns during pick up, packing or delivery contact your local transportation office.
