Boeing submits proposal for US Army Ground-Vehicle support
The Boeing Company today announced that it has submitted a proposal to the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) to provide supply chain services to the US Army for ground vehicle support at Army depots in Anniston, Ala., and Red River, Texas. The eight-year, $193 million contract award is expected to be announced this summer.
"Our proposal offers a best-value supply chain solution to the Defense Logistics Agency that will provide fast, reliable services at a consistently high quality," said Jason Frei, Boeing program manager of Land & Maritime DLA Support Programs. "Boeing has long been a leader in the aviation supply chain market, and we are committed to demonstrating our innovative capabilities to our land and maritime customers."
Boeing submitted its proposal through DLA's Industrial Product-Support Vendor (IPV) program, which provides maintenance and reset for ground-vehicle fleets. The IPV program works to create partnerships between government and industry to capitalize on the strengths of the supply chain to increase both supply availability and parts reliability. Boeing is seeking to provide inventory management, requirements forecasting, parts and technical support for the Army IPV program.
