Contract Award Announced for Department of Defense Contract

The United States Transportation Command announced the award of the $2.2 billion Defense Freight Transportation Services (DFTS) contract to GENCO Infrastructure Solutions of Pittsburgh, PA on Wednesday, December 30, 2015. The DFTS contract includes requirements for transportation management for Department of Defense facilities in the continental United States through the end of 2017. As the contract is implemented at facilities and with vendors, the predecessor contract to DFTS, the Defense Transportation Coordination Initiative (DTCI) will be wound down. The DTCI contract was previously awarded to Menlo Global Logistics in 2007. GENCO Infrastructure Solutions previously held contracts with the Department of Defense to support the U.S. Navy’s presence in Bahrain and the CENTCOM Theater.

The DFTS contract was competitively bid and generated significant interest from the industry. The contract will cover transportation support for Freight All Kinds (FAK), First Destination Transportation, Second Destination, Scheduled Routes, Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Disposition Services, Unit Moves, Federal Emergency Management Agency support, humanitarian/contingency support, Foreign Military Sales (FMS) and surge shipments. At the start of the contract, the services will support the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) and the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA). Other government agencies may require services over the course of the contract.
