Military Traffic Management Command’s new POV contract boosts user benefits

ALEXANDRIA, Va., (USTCNS) --- Military and civilian members of the Department of Defense shipping privately owned vehicles to new assignments can expect continued good service under the new contract awarded by the Military Traffic Management Command.

American Auto Logistics, Inc., of Monroe, N.Y, has been awarded the Global Privately-Owned Vehicle II contract. Annually, MTMC is responsible for the movement of 72,000 personally owned vehicles belonging to military and civilian members of the Department of Defense.

“The new contract provides reduced movement times, site settlement of claims up to $1,000, and in-transit visibility of shipped and stored vehicles,” said Kathleen Jones, contracting officer. “This award represents the best value to the government.”

The contract begins Nov. 1.

"The contractor has provided high-quality service under the original contract and we expect this level of service to continue in the new contract,” said Charlie Helfrich, team leader, Privately Owned Vehicle and Storage Team.

In surveys, the firm has received a 99 percent customer approval rate.

American Auto Logistics has operated the contract for the past five years. In that period, the program has been expanded to increase the number of full service centers from 29 to 36. In addition, a vehicle storage option was added May 1, 2002.

“The storage provision is especially handy for soldiers ordered to overseas assignments where they are prohibited from taking a personal vehicle,” said Helfrich. "Our contractor will maintain the operating condition of all stored vehicles, in accordance with recommendations of the vehicle manufacturer.”

Total 10-year contract value is estimated at $1.9 billion. This estimate represents a two-year base period of performance, three one-year option periods, and five one-year award term incentive periods.

American Auto Logistics will be responsible for 36 vehicle processing centers, with service to and from the 21 additional partial service or quality-of-life sites, four covered storage sites, trucking services throughout Europe, Asia, and the United States, including Alaska. The administration and payment of ocean carriage also is required.

Under the new contract, 12 U.S. Flag ocean carriers can be booked to ship privately owned vehicles.

For additional information, eligible Department of Defense members should contact their nearest installation transportation office. Additional information on the program is available at the MTMC Web site and www.mtmc.army.mil.
