American Roll On Roll Off Carrier Group has won a potential $7.2B U.S. Transportation Command contract covering logistics services to support the relocation of defense personnel and their families.
As part of the Global Household Goods Contract, ARC will work with Transcom to integrate information technology systems and procedures throughout a nine-month period ahead of the first wave of shipments scheduled for February 2021, the Department of Defense said Thursday.
The GHC initiative encompasses various commercial entities that work to address demands and establish accountability in DoD shipping operations through simplified communications and claims procedures.
ARC is slated to manage all shipments within the continental U.S. throughout next year’s peak season, with transition activities slated for October 2021 ahead of 2022 peak season for domestic and international shipments.
Transcom received seven bids for the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract through a competitive solicitation process.
DoD noted that ARC will work with subcontractors, including small businesses, for the GHC initiative.
ARC is headquartered in Parsippany, N.J., and offers Ro-Ro services for break-bulk cargo as well as military and commercial vehicles.
