Spartan Motors, Inc., a global leader in specialty chassis and vehicle design, manufacturing and assembly, has announced that its Spartan Fleet Vehicles and Services (FVS) business unit has been awarded a $214 million contract from the United States Postal Service (USPS) for more than 2,000 cargo body fleet vehicles.

Spartan Motors noted that the order from the USPS includes a combination of Cab Over Engine and Cab Behind Engine Utilimaster truck bodies in a variety of 18-foot and 24-foot configurations.

“Utilimaster has been engineering and building the very best purpose-built parcel delivery vehicles for more than 40 years,” said Daryl Adams, President and Chief Executive Officer, Spartan Motors.

The USPS order will be built and delivered over the span of two years, with an option for additional quantities delivered over a third contract year. Production will begin in Q2 of 2018.

“Our ability to design, custom engineer, and build commercial trucks across classes 1-6, in addition to providing custom vocation-specific upfits uniquely positions us to serve the growing ‘last mile’ delivery fleet that is in demand by today’s ecommerce retailers,” concluded Tom Ninneman, President of Spartan Fleet Vehicles and Services.

The contract represents the largest revenue contract in the history of Spartan Motors.
