FAYETTEVILLE, N.C., July 15 (UPI) -- The U.S. Marine Corps has selected U.S. Logistics Inc. for a multiyear contract to provide tactical vehicles with maintenance support.
Under the deal, North Carolina-based U.S. Logistics will provide the Marine Corps with maintenance services repairing military vehicles returning from operations Iraq.
If all five options periods are exercised the contract could be worth nearly $100 million for U.S. Logistics, a military vehicle maintenance, modification and overhaul provider.
