Next Generation Delivery Vehicle (NGDV) update

On Friday, May 31, the first production-model Next Generation Delivery Vehicles (NGDVs) were delivered to the Postal Service by Oshkosh Defense.

These vehicles, which are the culmination of more than a decade of planning, designing, building and testing of the NGDV, were deployed to the Athens, GA, Sorting and Delivery Center and will be used to replace the current fleet of right-hand drive Long Life Vehicles. The final design of the NGDV was influenced by the feedback of NALC representatives and city letter carriers from around the country who reviewed the initial design of the vehicle in Oshkosh, WI, in July 2021. The initial production of NGDVs are gas-powered variants, with the battery-electric models scheduled for deployment in August 2024.

As more NGDVs are produced and deployed, NALC will update the membership through website posts and articles in The Postal Record.
