Crowley is Providing Logistics Support to the United States and NATO in Europe
Jacksonville-based Crowley Solutions was awarded a multi-year contract by the U.S. Army 409th Contracting Support Brigade-Theater Contracting Command. Under the Third Party Logistics Europe Wide Movement contract, the company will provide transportation of personnel and cargo and procurement of material handling equipment to the U.S. government, NATO and non-NATO partners throughout the European Command area of responsibility, supporting the 21st Theater Sustainment Command and Theater Movements Center, headquartered in Kaiserslautern, Germany. The contract runs from May 2020 until May 2023, with an estimated value of $49 million, and is on a task-order basis.
“As a global leader in third-party logitics services, particularly to the U.S. Department of Defense, this contract award will expand our proven and mission-driven support for defense and federal government services from the continental U.S. to Europe,” said Chris Goss, a Crowley vice president of business development and expeditionary logistics. “Crowley is dedicated to serving customers with cost-effective and technology-driven solutions that the Department of Defense and our deployed men and women in uniform can depend on.”
Currently, the company manages transportation and related services for U.S. military activity under the Defense Freight Transportation Services contract, which involves management and execution of 1,800 moves daily, or over 350,000 moves annually, in North America.
