A carrier requested reconsideration of its claim for additional hazardous material shipment charges, contending that the Military Traffic Management Command (MTMC) improperly classified its shipment of hazardous substances as non-chemical ammunition. GAO had held that MTMC properly classified the substances as explosives other than chemical ammunition. In its request for reconsideration, the carrier contended that its shipment was in accordance with note 3 of the MTMC Freight Traffic Rules publication. GAO held that its prior decision should be reversed, since: (1) it was based on an error of fact and law; and (2) the items fell within the MTMC definition of chemical ammunition. Accordingly, the claim was allowed.
