Overseas Military Complain of Missing Private Cars

August 19, 2014

According to a published report, hundreds of U.S. service members are reporting that their privately owned vehicles have gone missing or been damaged while being shipped to and from overseas bases.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports that after months of complaints, the military is sending teams to find the vehicles.

The survey teams are from U.S. Transportation Command, which is run out of Scott Air Force Base in southeastern Illinois and is responsible for air, land and sea transportation for the Department of Defense.

Shipping of the vehicles is handled by International Auto Logistics, a Brunswick, Georgia-based contractor.

Company spokeswoman Amanda Nunez blamed the high volume of vehicles it’s been asked to move in too short a time period.

The survey teams will visit vehicle staging areas starting next week.
