Special Needs Transportation

American Logistics Co. to serve Calif. district

Posted on August 14, 2012

American Logistics Co. (ALC) has been selected by Carlsbad Unified School District (CUSD) to provide transportation services for students with special needs.

ALC is a national passenger transportation management company that specializes in special-needs transportation.

Officials said that ALC’s winning bid, which was $1 million less per year than the next lowest bid, will enable CUSD and taxpayers to save more than $3 million over the initial three-year base term of the contract, with two option years that would extend the contract up to five years and provide an additional $2 million in savings.

Additionally, because ALC’s coordinated transportation model leverages community-based resources, the dollars invested by CUSD will remain in the community.

ALC has a long-standing relationship with CUSD, having provided special-needs transportation services to the district since 2007. This has saved the district up to 40% annually over competitive transportation service offerings, according to the company.

“It is an honor to continue providing services for CUSD’s students with special transportation needs,” said Craig Puckett, president of ALC. “Our work with CUSD demonstrates that in the area of special-needs transportation, high quality, responsive service and cost containment are not mutually exclusive objectives. We look forward to working with CUSD and their students with special transportation needs for many years to come.”
