TEAM ARC AWARDED GLOBAL HOUSEHOLD GOODS CONTRACT

Parsippany, New Jersey – American Roll-On Roll-Off Carrier Group, Inc. (ARC) and its subcontracting partners announced today that Team ARC has been selected for a new multiyear contract award by the United States Transportation Command (TRANSCOM). The contract will provide global relocation services for the Department of Defense (DoD) and U.S. Coast Guard. Team ARC, which was strategically assembled from leaders in the moving, logistics and technology industries, will lead a full-service, worldwide relocation effort focused on improving the quality of service provided to Service Members, their families, and DoD civilians under the Global Household Goods Contract (GHC) (HTC711-19-R-R004). GHC is valued at $7.2B for the transition period and three-year base period.

Team ARC’s mission is to reduce the burden and stress on service members and their families through providing an integrated, state-of-the-art commercial technology platform, Homefront. The component partners have served TRANSCOM since its inception and our service members and the military for more than 75 years. To address challenges TRANSCOM and service members have experienced in relocating, Team ARC committed to three program-specific priorities: take care of the troops, execute on GHC intent, and deliver on TRANSCOM’s mission and priorities. The simple phrase — Take Care of the Troops — is one of TRANSCOM’s five priorities and the “North Star” guiding Team ARC’s endeavors.

“Moving not only can cause significant stress for an individual but can also challenge the mettle of an entire family,” ARC CEO Eric Ebeling said. “This is especially true for our nation’s Service Members, who are routinely challenged to relocate every two or three years. Team ARC brings superior quality, deep experience, increased capacity, and enhancements for the customer experience. We have been looking forward to this announcement and cannot wait to get started. We thank TRANSCOM for entrusting us with this essential mission.”

About the Global Household Goods Contract (GHC)

Under GHC, a single commercial move manager was appointed to oversee activities relating to the domestic and international movement and storage-in-transit of household goods. Team ARC will provide all personnel, equipment, facilities, tools, materials, supervision and other items and services necessary to provide global Household Goods (HHG) relocation services. GHC includes an initial nine-month transition period that, assuming no delays due to protests, will commence in May 2020, and the contract may run for over nine years, if all options and awards are exercised by the government.
