    What is the GSA Transportation and Logistics Services Category

    Many federal, local and municipal agencies often need various transportation services. Before the MAS Consolidation 2020, such needs were fulfilled by several GSA Schedules (see below). Now, it is the GSA Transportation Category that allows governmental organizations to procure products and services they need.

    The GSA Transportation Schedule replaces GSA Schedule 48, Schedule 23V, Schedule 81IV, and Schedule 751. SINs from these legacy Schedules were rearranged and included into the consolidated Transportation and Logistics Category. This consolidation has instantly made the category one of the highest budget with nearly $600 million in GSA sales during the 2019 FY. At the same time, the number of contractors in this category is fairly low. This means competition is lower than in other Schedules, and that consequently means that each contractor’s share is larger. On average, the category brings $1,6 million per transportation service provider, per year. Would you like to be a part of this? Then, you certainly want to learn how to get onto the Transportation and Logistics Schedule.

    Importantly, a number of SINs under the GSA Transportation & Logistics category are subjects to the Cooperative Purchasing program, and there are Small Business Set-Asides as well.

    Legacy Schedules Replaced by the GSA Transportation and Logistics Services Category:

    The GSA Transportation Category overrides the following legacy Schedules:

    • GSA Schedule 48 – Transportation, Delivery And Relocation Solutions
    • GSA Schedule 23V – Automotive Superstore
    • GSA Schedule 81IV – Shipping, Packaging And Packing Supplies
    • GSA Schedule 751 – Leasing Of Automobiles And Light Trucks

    Now, all four legacy Schedules are combined into one structured category that contains 5 subcategories:

    • Automotive Body Maintenance and Repair
    • Motor Vehicles (non-Combat)
    • Package Delivery
    • Packaging Services
    • Transportation of Things

    How to win a GSA Transportation Schedule contract?

    The former GSA Schedules 48, 23V (and others) are now a part of the Large Category – GSA Transportation and Logistics Services. Obtaining a contract in this category can skyrocket your business: there are dozens of agencies that need to transport things, package them, or maintain and repair motor vehicles, and so on. However, as with other technically complex Schedules, there are a number of rigorous requirements to contractors. Fulfilling them is necessary to win a GSA Transportation contract.

    The overall procedure to getting onto the GSA Transportation and Logistics Services Schedule is similar to other Schedules. Here are the basic steps you need to take:

    1. Preparation step. Before you can apply for a Schedule, you need to register your business and get an account at SAM.gov – the system for acquisition management. This is required to be able to participate in the eOffer/eMod systems, to read GSA Schedule solicitations and to submit documents to the GSA.
    2. Submission step. Overall, the submission process requires filling a number of forms and preparing all necessary documents the GSA application rules require. Documents include financial statements, compliance checks, past performance examples, sales reports and so on. You can find the exact list of documents for submission in the solicitation package.
    3. Review step. Your submission is reviewed by the GSA specialist. The process typically revolves around fixing mistakes and discrepancies in the submitted documents and submitting other documents the procurement officer requests.
    4. Negotiation step. After review, the procurement officer will start negotiation of the contract’s terms and conditions.
    5. Award step. When prices and technical specifications are negotiated and confirmed, you are awarded a contract.

    It goes without saying that going through the entire application process requires a lot of effort and attention on your side. There hundreds of nuances and pitfalls you need to know about in order to successfully secure a GSA Transportation and Logistics Contract. That is why many vendors prefer to hire an agent that will guide them through the process. Not only does this greatly speed up preparation, review and eventual award of the contract. It also ensures error-free submission and effortless maintenance of the GSA contract. Price Reporter is ready to assist your company.

      Testimonials

      Price Reporter recently helped us with our 3rd GSA contract, the 2nd they did with us. It was the fastest we've ever been through the process with GSA. Each step was easy because the ground work was done before we were asked to do anything. Our pricing verification phase went smooth and quickly and both our contracts were accepted without rejection, with minimal negotiations with contracting.
