  • The future of USPS trucks is electric: The new fleet will replace, expand more than 230K vehicles

The U.S. Postal Service will finally get new high-tech mail delivery trucks. 

The agency said Tuesday that it awarded a 10-year multi-billion dollar contract to Wisconsin-based Oshkosh Defense to replace it’s aging fleet of vehicles.

The new fleet will replace and expand the existing more than 230,000 vehicles – among them approximately 190,000 delivery trucks – including many that have been in service for 30 years.

The deal calls for the postal service to order between 50,000 to 165,000 new delivery trucks featuring 360-degree cameras, advanced braking, with front- and rear-collision avoidance system that includes visual, audio warning and automatic braking.
