Carlile (Government Services) is awarded a 5-year Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract with the Federal Emergency Management Agency(FEMA) for transportation and logistics services in support of relief efforts following major disasters and emergencies. Carlile will provide a full range of transportation and logistics services to FEMA in their efforts to help Alaskans when help is needed.
We couldn’t be more proud to have been awarded this contract and to be able to support FEMA in its efforts. We know that when disasters happen, Carlile will be there to help get people and supplies where they need to go.
When You Think of Governmental Services, You Likely Don’t Think of Transportation Or Logistics
The reality is that transportation and logistics are crucial to governmental agencies like FEMA being able to do their job. Imagine if supplies couldn’t get to where they were needed after a major disaster – it would be a nightmare.
Supplies need to be distributed quickly and efficiently in the case of an emergency. Making this possible requires supplies to be stored locally. The supplies include food, water, sanitary items, first aid kits, and more.
We’re proud to be one of three carriers awarded this 5-year IDIQ contract. We know we have the experience and the capability to handle anything FEMA needs us to do when the time comes to act.
A Governmental Contract We Hope We Never Need to Use
The contract details include a maximum lifetime contract value of $718,110,489.80, and we hope we never have to use any of it.
FEMA helps Alaska in times of natural disasters, including earthquakes, volcanos, floods, forest fires, and tsunamis. If Carlile is called upon to act in support of FEMA’s Resource and Capability Transportation Support (RCTSD), then that means a natural disaster has occurred. In the best-case scenario, there will be no occurrences that call for us to act. However, if the worst happens, we’ll be there to help.
What the FEMA Contract Means
The contract with FEMA is one way that Carlile is working to support the communities we serve. We’re proud to be a company that’s there for our customers in the good and bad times.
Our duties in terms of RCTSD include, but are not limited to, containerized and breakbulk cargo movement via ground, air, or ocean to anywhere in Alaska as needed, as well as retrograde movement to the CONUS, warehousing, storage, and passenger movement.
In other words, if FEMA needs it for Alaskan disaster relief, we’ll transport it – no matter what it is or where it needs to go.
Being the premier shipping and logistics provider in the great state of Alaska puts us in a position to help in ways other companies aren’t able to. We have a long history of being there for our communities; this is just one more way we can do that.
We’re honored to be awarded this contract and take our responsibilities seriously. We’ll be there when FEMA needs us – no matter what.
