Agility DGS Wins Warehousing Contract

ALEXANDRIA, Va., August X, 2009 – Agility Defense & Government Services (DGS) said today that the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) renewed its contract for warehouse and distribution services at the Defense Distribution Center, Kuwait/Southwest Asia (DDKS).

Under the one-year extension, Agility DGS, a leading global provider of supply chain solutions, will use its extensive facilities in Kuwait to provide DLA with a complete warehouse management system to support operations in the Middle East and Southwest Asia.

DLA originally awarded Agility DGS a one-year DDKS contract in 2005. Each year since, Agility DGS has won the right to handle the work. The potential value of the DDKS award is $214 million over five years.

“We are gratified to have earned the confidence of DLA based on our record of outstanding performance since 2005,” said Dan Mongeon, president and CEO of Agility DGS. “We’ve become a trusted partner because we provide advanced logistics experience, capabilities and facilities that are unsurpassed. We are uniquely suited to continue helping the DDKS provide outstanding support to the U.S. military.”

The DDKS contract extends Agility’s record of successful performance for the DLA, which includes recent awards of long-term contracts for heavy equipment and transport services in Iraq and Kuwait, along with supply and distribution of food and other products for the U.S. military in Iraq. Agility DGS also recently has won contracts to manage repair parts supplies at the Tobyhanna Army Depot in Pennsylvania and bulk-fuel supplies for the U.S. military on U.S. Air Force installations in Guam, Japan, South Korea, Portugal, Germany and Turkey.
