The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) has a requirement to contracts for the rental and leasing of various types and capacities of motor vehicles primarily for the purpose of mail transportation. Motor Vehicle Services (MVS) vehicle utilization averages 20,000 miles per year on local routes and 30,000 to 60,000 miles per year on highway routes. The vehicles are primarily used for the transport of high volumes of mail delivered in major metropolitan areas. (Vehicles used on carrier delivery routes average less than 10,000 miles per year on most routes.)
The USPS MVS vehicle fleet consists of 7/11 ton cargo vans, Single Axle (SA) tractors, Tandem Axle (TA) tractors, and Spotter vehicles. As illustration of our needs, six hundred metro vans were leased within FY 2015 and currently there are one hundred thirty six (136) straight trucks and two hundred fifty one tractors (251) which are being leased to augment the USPS owned fleet. Delivery Services has a need for a small amount of heavy fleet vehicles (5-10)
