USPS Next Generation Delivery Vehicle Program Update

Dec. 2, 2020

In 2016, the United States Postal Service began a multi-year research program, with select suppliers, to replace its aging fleet of right-hand drive Long Life Vehicles (LLV) with the Next Generation Delivery Vehicle (NGDV), and is now nearing the end of the extensive process.

The COVID-19 pandemic previously resulted in the expected production award being pushed to the end of 2020. However, amid continuing COVID-19 concerns, and in order to provide for capital investment activities and required approvals, the program schedule has been revised and a decision is now planned for quarter 2 of fiscal year 2021 (January to March 2021).
