The existing Navy Household Goods HHG Program is examined in relation to proposed alternative methods in an effort to improve the efficiency of uncrated household goods moves for Naval personnel. Recent modifications to the HHG carrier suspension procedure, a negative incentive, were found to have reduced the effectiveness of this important traffic management tool. This paper concludes that a positive incentive provision must be included to improve the efficiency of the program. Two proposed alternative methods of achieving this objective were included. One, the Option Plan, would allow Naval personnel the option of arranging and paying for their own move, and being reimbursed at a fixed percent of entitlement. The other, the Bonus Plan, would provide bonus tonnage as a reward to carriers whose past performance was superior.
