USPS Next Generation Delivery Vehicle fleet
After decades of supporting the U.S. military with mission-critical vehicles and delivering on large complex programs with full product lifecycle support, Oshkosh Defense was chosen to provide the U.S. Postal Service Next Generation Delivery Vehicle (NGDV).
The vehicle—designed by Oshkosh engineers and key suppliers to meet the requirements provided by the USPS—was customized specifically for the needs of mail carriers. It includes safety features designed to help ensure carriers can complete every job successfully, including a walk-in cargo area, larger windshields, a 360-degree camera and collision sensors. We are currently utilizing a telematics solution that provides real-time insights on vehicle operation and efficiency. And the vehicle platform can accommodate both internal combustion and battery-electric engines. Over the next ten years, we will build and deliver between 50,000 and 165,000 battery electric and low emission internal combustion engine vehicles with 2-wheel or 4-wheel drive, depending on the Postal Service’s requirements.
