AAR receives $40 million order for container Roll-in/Out platforms

AAR has received an order to provide Containerized Roll-in/Out Platforms (CROP) for the U.S. Army, valued at $40 million. The platforms will be manufactured by AAR’s SUMMA Technology facility in Cullman, Alabama through 2010. This new order, as well as a $26 million order announced in July 2008, is part of a five-year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract that was established in 2005.

The CROP is a rolling flatrack platform that fits inside standard-sized 20-foot containers used by the Army to transport and deliver supplies and equipment across its multi-modal distribution system.
