    One can find reference to the DD1387 on the TRANSCOM website in the Defense Transportation Regulation – Part II dated 30 October 2013 under Cargo Movement: II-208-18 as Figure 208-4.  It states "Only the exact format shown in Figure 208-4 can be printed and referred to as a DD Form 1387, Military Shipment Label, and it will be used when manual shipment documentation is the only labeling alternative available during emergency Defense Transportation Regulation Cargo Movement operations (when hand-written labels are the only alternative)"  The form shown in figure 208-4 shows JUL 1999.
