USPS Steps Up Its Fleet Game

USPS Steps Up Its Fleet Game

The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) invested in the most significant modernization of its fleet in three decades. It recently awarded a 10-year contract to Oshkosh Defense to manufacture a new generation of U.S.-built delivery vehicles as part of a multi-billion-dollar effort to replace the entire fleet.

The new vehicles will be equipped with either fuel-efficient internal combustion engines or battery electric powertrains. Oshkosh Defense will assemble 50,000 to 165,000 of the next-generation delivery vehicles (NGDVs) in the next 10 years.

The NGDVs will include AC and heating, improved ergonomics, and advanced technology such as 360-degree cameras. They will also have increased capacity to accommodate higher package volumes resulting from e-commerce growth.
