American Roll-On Roll-Off Carrier Group Inc. (ARC) today announced the company has filed a protest with the United States Government Accountability Office (GAO), which resolves disputes concerning the award of federal contracts, over the United States Transportation Command’s (TRANSCOM) award of the Global Household Goods Contract (GHC) (HTC711-19-R-R004) on November 4.
ARC has legitimate concerns over the award process. ARC was originally awarded GHC on April 30, 2020, at which time TRANSCOM labeled Team ARC’s proposal “game changing.” Following a protest, ARC was re-awarded GHC on June 29, 2020. In protesting TRANSCOM’s latest award decision, Team ARC said it is confident that its proposal remains superior and provides the best customer service solution for Service Members and their families. Team ARC stands ready to provide all personnel, equipment, technology, facilities, tools, materials, supervision, and other items and services necessary to provide a turnkey, all-inclusive moving service.
ARC and its team of global leaders in the moving, logistics, and technology industries, including UniGroup (United Van Lines, Mayflower), Suddath, Atlas, The Pasha Group, and Deloitte, as well as a strong network of small businesses, know Team ARC has the customer-focused, high-quality moving solution that Service Members and their families deserve.
The Team ARC Difference
Team ARC has been purposefully and strategically assembled from leaders in the moving, logistics, and technology industries to reduce the burden and stress on GHC Customers. Team ARC’s component partners have served TRANSCOM since its inception and our Service Members and the military for more than 75 years.
Team ARC is committed to deliver on TRANSCOM’s priority to Take Care of the Troops. That simple phrase is the “North Star” that has guided Team ARC’s endeavors.
The major partners in Team ARC include:
UniGroup is the parent of United Van Lines, the largest moving company in North America, and Mayflower Transit, the fourth largest moving company in North America.
Atlas World Group, the parent of Atlas Van Lines, founded in 1948, is the second largest moving company brand within the United States.
