Transportation Management

The Transportation Management Unit (TMU) provides specialized services, as described in the State Administrative Manual, Section 3800 to all State agencies.  We have expert knowledge of rates and tariffs regarding the movement of all State materials in the most expeditious, economical and efficient manner.

Pursuant to the DGS' commitment to reduce energy and paperwork, we will begin eliminating letters sent via U.S. mail to communicate with internal and external stakeholders.  Instead, DGS will maintain current information on this website.
