Menlo Worldwide wins contract renewal for U.S. Defense Transportation Coordination Initiative
Menlo Worldwide Logistics, the global logistics subsidiary of Con-way Inc., has announced that the U.S. Army's Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command (SDDC) has awarded two contract modifications to Menlo Worldwide Government Services, LLC.
The actions renew Menlo as prime contractor for the U.S. Defense Transportation Coordination Initiative (DTCI) and further expand the scope of its contract by adding 19 additional Department of Defense (DOD) shipper sites to the DTCI programme.
Menlo was selected as prime contractor in August 2007 for a base three-year period with four one-year renewal options. Menlo was awarded the first renewal year and the expanded scope based on its performance over the initial three-year contract.
As DTCI's prime contractor, Menlo operates an integrated logistics solution for shipment planning, optimisation, shipment execution and overall transportation management for material shipments moving into and among DOD facilities in the 48 contiguous United States."It's an honour to be able to bring our expertise to bear in ways that enable our nation's war fighters to be better prepared with the right supplies on time at the right time to accomplish their missions," said Robert L. Bianco Jr., president, Menlo Worldwide Logistics and a former U.S. Army officer. "We are proud to have earned the opportunity to continue our work as DTCI's prime contractor."
