Serco, the international services company, has been awarded a contract by the United States Air Force (Europe) (USAFE) to continue to deliver transportation and supply services across three UK sites: RAF Alconbury; RAF Molesworth; and RAF Croughton.
The contract is for five years and started on 1 March 2019, with each individual year to be exercised as an individual option within the overall framework.
Historically referred to as the AMC Contract, in an acknowledgement of the three RAF bases being supported, Serco has been delivering these diverse services to support the USAFE since 2004 and this was the third time that the company has successfully rebid the contract.
Commenting on the award, USAFE Director of Business Operations, Susan Fuller, who was responsible for the contract award stated: “I am pleased to announce the award of the Transportation, Supply, and FMS Contract to Serco Ltd. I look forward to working with Serco in the future”.
Paul Mccarter, Managing Director of Serco’s Defence business, said: “We are proud to be supporting the US Air Force in the UK and we are delighted to have won this contract for a fourth time running. Our team is highly professional and they will continue to deliver an excellent service for the next five years.”
The services to be delivered include traffic management office functions (movement of personnel/equipment into or from AMC to worldwide destinations), cargo movements (internal UK), vehicle transportation to include schedules and unscheduled activities, furniture management services (provisioning in or moving out of household goods to properties throughout the UK), supply activities and vehicle maintenance, which has responsibility for the maintenance of a diverse fleet of c.400 US specification-vehicles ranging from security/police vehicles to fire engines.
