what is movement control un definition
What is Movement Control? (UN Definition)

Movement Control(MOVCON) is defined as the planning, routing, scheduling and control of personnel and freight movements over lines of communication. It also refers to the organization responsible for these functions, whether at UN Headquarters, regional level, mission level or within the member states’ national and/or military organizations.

Strategic Movementis the movement of personnel and/or their equipment between their home country’s national mounting base and/or their sea and airports of embarkation, and the UN mission area of operations (AO).

Tactical (Mission Level) Movementis the movement of personnel and/or their equipment from major points of entry (i.e. air and sea ports) to destinations within a UN mission area of operations (AO). Mission level movement control sections are responsible for organizing and executing intra-mission (and limited inter-mission) movement control of personnel and equipment.

information requirements
Information Requirements

For UN arranged or TCC/PCC (LOA) arrangements, the following must be presented to the MCS prior to movement:

General Cargo Load List(s) – Listing of weights and dimensions of major equipment (as per MOU) and sea containers. This is NOT the packing/manifest list.

Dangerous Goods Load List(s)– Listing of the Dangerous Goods (DG) contained in the shipment. Details as per template and IATA/IMDG requirements.

Separate, distinct load lists should be prepared for each unit (i.e. Infantry Battalion, Engineer Company) and each element of that unit (i.e. Infantry Battalion Advance Party, Engineer Company Main Body, etc).

Please provide “soft” copy (MS Excel) for all load lists. Templates available on UN FORCE LINK:

letters of assist tcc pcc
Letters of Assist (TCC/PCC)

Process is very similar to commercial contract, however, market survey is conducted instead of RFP

No formal evaluation of TCC/PCC proposal is conducted

“Contract” is signed with the TCC/PCC for provision of service

Require more lead time for approvals process
