HomeSafe Alliance Secures $20B Contract to Help Military Families Relocate
HomeSafe Alliance announced that it has been awarded the global household goods contract by the U.S. Transportation Command. The contract ceiling value is $20 billion with a potential nine-year term, inclusive of all options periods, KBR said Friday.
The KBR-led joint venture will be the exclusive household goods move management service provider for the U.S. armed forces, Department of Defense civilians and their families. Alan Thompson, HomeSafe’s chief executive officer, said combining HomeSafe Connect’s advanced digital solution and global program management expertise promises to dramatically improve the relocation experience for service members, civilians and their families.
Under the contract, HomeSafe, a joint venture between KBR and Tier One Relocation, will modernize and infuse technology to improve the domestic and international relocation experience for all military personnel and their dependents.
An article on Military. com stated that frequent moves can be considered both the best and worst parts of military family life. On the one hand, military families have a chance to see corners of the country or even the world that they might not have seen otherwise. On the other hand, moving is emotionally stressful and financially burdensome.
Since there are tighter restrictions on how much of their belongings a family can bring along, the military will pay to put some items in storage while also paying to ship the rest. It will also pay for the shipment of one car overseas.
HomeSafe is touted to provide fast, easy, efficient relocation experiences. The company said that its cutting-edge technology and proven global logistics services expertise are transforming the moving process by continuously evaluating, refining and improving its tools and techniques.
