American Roll-On Roll-Off Carrier Group, Inc. (ARC) confirmed that the United States Transportation Command (TRANSCOM) has once again awarded the company a multiyear contract to provide global relocation services for the Department of Defense (DoD) and U.S. Coast Guard. Leading a team of partners selected from among global leaders in the moving, logistics and technologies industries, ARC will provide turn-key, all-inclusive worldwide relocation services to Service Members, their families, and DoD civilians under TRANSCOM's Global Household Goods Contract (GHC) (HTC711-19-R-R004).
During a protest to the Government Accountability Office (GAO) related to ARC's original GHC award, TRANSCOM received additional information that it determined should have been considered in its original contract decision. On June 9, TRANSCOM announced it would take corrective action to evaluate this new information and conduct a review of ARC's award. After GAO dismissed the protest and TRANSCOM completed its review, TRANSCOM confirmed its original April 30 decision and re-awarded GHC to Team ARC.
"Team ARC remains committed to our proposal to provide exceptional customer service to TRANSCOM and the Service Members," said ARC CEO Eric Ebeling. "We look forward to getting started on GHC."
