USPS commits $1.2B to lay foundation for its mostly electric next-gen fleet
The Postal Service is laying the groundwork for its plans to operate a next-generation delivery vehicle (NGDV) fleet that’s mostly electric.
USPS announced Tuesday it has awarded a contract to purchase 9,250 commercially available electric vehicles, as well as install 14,000 charging stations at its facilities across the country.
The agency, looking to replace its aging fleet as soon as possible, is also awarding a contract to purchase 9,250 commercially available gas-powered vehicles.
USPS is spending more than $1 billion to purchase both the commercial electric and gas-powered vehicles, as part of fixed-price contracts
