PARSIPPANY, NJ (June 30, 2020) — American Roll-On Roll-Off Carrier Group, Inc. (ARC) and its subcontracting partners today confirmed that the United States Transportation Command (TRANSCOM) has once again awarded Team ARC a multiyear contract to 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 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,” ARC CEO Eric Ebeling said. “We look forward to getting started on GHC.”
About the Global Household Goods Contract (GHC)
Under the terms of GHC, a single commercial move manager has been appointed to oversee and be responsible for all activities that relate to the domestic and international movement and storage-in-transit of Household Goods (HHG). Team ARC will provide all personnel, equipment, facilities, tools, materials, supervision, and other items and services necessary to provide global HHG relocation services. GHC includes an initial nine-month transition period and the contract may run for over nine years if all options and awards are exercised by the Government.
About Team ARC
Team ARC was purposefully and strategically assembled from leaders in the moving, logistics, and technology industries to reduce the burden and stress on Service Members and their families. Team ARC’s component partners have served TRANSCOM since its inception and our Service Members and the military for more than 75 years. To address challenges that TRANSCOM and Service Members have experienced in HHG relocations, 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” that guided Team ARC’s endeavors.
