PWC Logistics wins third U.S. military contract in three months
Kuwait City-based PWC Logistics said Saturday it has been awarded a contract worth up to $180 million by the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) to provide warehousing and distribution services to the DLA in Kuwait.
Under terms of the deal, PWC Logistics will handle more than 70,000 different items and support DLA operations both regionally and globally from its existing Kuwait facility with more than one million square feet of both climate-controlled and outdoor storage space.
PWC will also provide asset tracking, packing for ground and air transportation, and information technology development and implementation support.
The contract is scheduled to start Aug. 29, and is divided into five equal time periods, an initial 12-month commitment followed by four one-year extension options. During each 12-month period, the contract value may reach up to $36 million, depending on the volume of services required.
The contract is the third awarded to PWC Logistics by the DLA in as many months. In June, the DLA awarded PWC Logistics a contract, worth up to $14 billion over a five-year period, to distribute food and related items to U.S. troops in Kuwait, Iraq and Jordan. In the same month, the U.S. military awarded the company a heavy-lift transportation contract, valued at $1.5 billion over five years, which was described by PWC Logistics at the time as the “largest heavy-lift transportation contract ever awarded by the U.S. military.”
