USAF awards US$27.5 million task order to AAR

AAR Mobility Systems has been awarded a task order valued at US$27.5 million from the U.S. Air Force for production of 463L cargo pallets.

The cargo pallets will be manufactured in Cadillac, Michigan and are expected to be completed by December 30, 2020. This task order is tied to a previously awarded contract, which brings the total cumulative face value to US$170.6 million.

AAR has been providing 463L systems cargo pallets to the U.S. Armed Forces since the early 1960s and continues to be the world leader in design and production. The 463L USAF design uses a lightweight balsa wood core that continues to provide unparalleled strength-to-weight performance and reliability compared to alternative commercial pallet designs.
