The US Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) has received a proposal from Boeing for the provision of supply chain services for ground vehicle support at US Army depots in Anniston, Alabama, and Red River, Texas.

Boeing Land & Maritime DLA Support Programs' manager Jason Frei said the proposal offers a best-value supply chain solution to the DLA that will provide fast, reliable services at a consistently high quality.

The proposal has been submitted through DLA's industrial product-support vendor (IPV) programme, which provides maintenance and reset for ground-vehicle fleets.

The IPV program creates collaborations between government and industry to capitalise on the strengths of the supply chain to increase both supply availability and parts reliability.

Boeing intends to provide inventory management, requirements forecasting, parts and technical support for the army IPV programme.
