GAO analyzed methods by which the Department of State could improve its traffic management policies.

Specifically, GAO found that savings could be realized by using the General Services Administration (GSA) rather than commercial contractors to perform packing, crating, and related services for goods going overseas. Additional savings are possible by taking advantage of special reduced transportation rates available to the Government, shipping furniture to the nearest GSA export depot, and negotiating lower ocean carrier transportation rates. Also overseas logistical operations could be improved by making greater use of the European Logistics Support Office in Antwerp, Belgium.
