TRANSCOM/DLA partnership results in transportation contract improvements
NEW CUMBERLAND, Pa. —
On February 12, DLA Distribution began utilizing one of the largest logistics contracts ever awarded by the U.S. government. The Defense Freight Transportation Services (DFTS) contract, a long-awaited collaboration between the United States Transportation Command and DLA Distribution, launched as an upgrade to the Defense Transportation Coordination Initiative (DTCI), which aimed to provide a single touch point for DoD shipments by allowing a commercial third party firm to manage and coordinate transportation.
