The following news release was issued by SIU-contracted American Roll-On Roll-Off Carrier (ARC) on April 30.
ARC Awarded Global Household Goods Contract
American Roll-On Roll-Off Carrier Group, Inc. (ARC) today announced the company has been selected for a new multiyear award contract by the United States Transportation Command (TRANSCOM) to provide global relocation services for the Department of Defense (DoD) and U.S. Coast Guard. ARC will lead a full-service, worldwide relocation effort with a team of subcontracting partners 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-RR004). GHC is valued at $7.2B for the transition period and three-year base period.
“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.”
About the Global Household Goods Contract (GHC)
Under GHC, a single commercial move manager was appointed to oversee activities that relate to the domestic and international movement and storage-in-transit of household goods. 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.
