The DD Form 1750 is a packing list form used throughout the US Department of Defense. It is available on the Department of Defense’s website, through your chain of command, and can even be filled in online and uploaded to your computer. The form can also be created by AIMS, the Automated Inventory Management System, which is a database that runs on Microsoft Access. If you are using this system or an equivalent, you can use this capability to save yourself and your organization the time and trouble of filling out the form directly.
How to Fill-in
It is a simple form to fill out. The top line contains a space to name the individual who is doing the packing. On the same line and to the right, you indicate the total number of shipping boxes that have been packed in Box number 1. On the far right of the first line, box 2a sits on top of box 2b; they contain the Requisition Number and the Order number, respectively.
The next line contains boxes 3, 4 and 5. Box 3 sits by itself on the left side of the form, and it is marked as the End Item. What goes into this space depends on the nature of what’s being packed. If it’s a complete set of components that will be assembled into an actual End Item, then the stock number and other relative information about the End Item must be enumerated. Otherwise, if it’s repair parts or other types of components, that can also be spelled out in item 3.
Boxes 4 and 5 sit on top of each other on the far right of the second line. Box 4 is simply the date. Box 5 indicates how many pages this form will run for, and what page of that sequence this particular listing is.
Column numbers A through F run across DD Form 1750. Because Box numbers D, E and F are used to enumerate quantities, there is a horizontal legend above those boxes titled “QUANTITIES REQUIRED”. Beneath each box run column lines that extend almost to the bottom of the page.
Column A is filled in if the total package is contained in more than one shipping box. It will indicate which box the item described in this row is contained. Column B describes the particular item in the package. The preferred entry is a Federal Stock Number (FSN). Column C is simply the Unit Of Issue for the item. The last three columns under “QUANTITIES REQUIRED” are optional. They indicate if the item is required for the complete unit being packed to function, or if they are spare parts.
Finally, the last row of DD Form 1750 is a place for the packer to print and sign.
