Boeing Secures $223M Phase 2 DLA Contract for Combat Logistics Support

boeing logoBoeing (NYSE: BA) will provide combat logistics support for 11 U.S. military aircraft under a $223 million contract for the second phase of a five-year, $516 million agreement with the Defense Logistics Agency.

The company said Tuesday the performance-based contract includes support for the AH-64 Apache, AV-8B Harrier, B-52 Stratofortress, C-17 Globemaster III and F/A-18 Super Hornet.

“Warfighters executing their missions rely on their systems being ready when they need them, ” said Julie Praiss,  vice president for tactical aircraft and weapons support at Boeing.

She added that the company will work to bolster aircraft performance and readiness at lower cost.

The Defense Department said Friday that Boeing will perform contract work at its facility in Missouri through Sept. 16, 2019.

DLA awarded Boeing the $293 million first-phase contract in September 2014, with option for an additional five years.

The contracts are part of DLA’s 2012 industry challenge to reduce logistics support costs by 20 percent by streamlining processes and enhancing supply performance, Boeing said.
