Florida Logistics Company Awarded $2.3 Billion Freight Contract

Jacksonville-based Crowley has secured one of the federal government’s largest logistics contracts, with the U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) awarding them a $2.3 billion, seven-year contract on July 2. 

This agreement extends Crowley's role in providing transportation and logistics services to the U.S. military, encompassing less than truckload (LTL), full truckload (FTL), expedited, time-definite, and rail services, alongside cross-docking and warehousing across the continental U.S., Alaska, and Canada.

The contract builds upon Crowley's previous Defense Freight Transportation Services (DFTS I) contract awarded in 2017, reinforcing their commitment to supporting military logistics needs. 

Crowley's Chief Operating Officer, Ray Fitzgerald, emphasized the company’s dedication to ensuring an efficient supply chain for the military, underscoring the privilege and responsibility of their enduring partnership with USTRANSCOM.

In addition to their operational commitments, Crowley plans to enhance community resilience through continued support for small businesses and diverse suppliers, exceeding $600 million in contracting efforts. 

They have significantly expanded their network of carriers and suppliers to triple the necessary capacity for handling 300,000 annual movements of critical military equipment and supplies.
