Third-party logistics firm Eagle Global Logistics has been selected to operate a $33-million, third-party logistics pilot program for the Dept. of Defense’s Military Traffic Management Command (MTMC) in three Southeastern states.

Starting July 1 and continuing through June 30, 2002, with two one-year renewable extensions, EGL will begin managing the majority of the military’s outbound freight shipments from installations in Alabama, Florida and Georgia, replacing 28 military transportation offices that have handled an estimated 50,000 shipments annually from that three-state region.

Houston-based EGL operates a network of 400 terminals in 100 countries and posted revenues last year of $1.8 billion. EGL’s services include air and ocean freight forwarding, customs brokerage, local pickup and delivery service, materials management, warehousing, trade facilitation and procurement, and integrated logistics and supply chain management services.
