General Dynamics, Marshall Canada to Deliver Logistics Vehicles to Canadian Armed Forces

The Canadian government has awarded General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada and its partner Marshall Canada two contracts worth $1.88 billion to deliver light and heavy logistics vehicles and support services to the Canadian Armed Forces.

Under the Logistics Vehicle Modernization project, the companies will supply more than 1,000 light trucks, 500 heavy trucks, and armored protection kits, modules, containers and trailers, among other related equipment. The LVM project’s acquisition contract is valued at $1.1 billion.

The vehicles will replace the Canadian military’s existing trucks that have been in use since the late 1980s and early 1990s, Defense News reported.

For the in-service support, GDLS and Marshall Canada were awarded a 25-year, $790,000 contract. GDLS-Canada, in partnership with Mercedes‐Benz, Soframe and Manac, will provide integration and support services throughout the project.

“Collaboration with our global customers and industry brings the most capable solutions to soldiers, and this power team is designed to deliver unique and reliable capability,” said Dave Paddock, president of General Dynamics Land Systems.

The contracts were awarded after the Canadian government selected GDLS-Canada as the preferred bidder for the LVM project in January, Defense News said.
