The U.S. Postal Service will solicit a National contract for the rental, leasing and lease with option to purchase of motor vehicles suitable for mail delivery. Lease terms will extend to a maximum of three (3) years.  The primary types of vehicles to be leased are minivans, cargo vans and high roof cargo vans( Mercedes Sprinter, Dodge Promaster, Ford Transit)  (Units must be EPACT (Energy Policy Act) compliant to the maximum extent practicable.  The vehicles are to be used in the carrier delivery operations.  Leases will be set up as closed-end leases.  When new vehicles are leased with the intention of purchase, the USPS will have the option to up fit them above the normal base vehicle by paying for the added up fits at lease inception.  The vehicle will then lease at the same lease rate as any other unit.  Vehicles rented/leased in excess of 90 days must be white in color in keeping with the USPS image.  Currently, there are no leased minivans or cargo vans in the fleet.  The base equipment must include a rubber mat that covers the entire floor area of the unit.  Cargo area must have lighting. The cargo area must be separated from the driver area by expanded wire mesh that will keep parcels from flying forward and hitting the operator or any passenger. Examples of the types of vehicles that will be required include:  Chevrolet City Express Van; Ford Transit Connect Van; Ford Transit Van flex fuel; Ford E150 Series Van4.6 FFV and Ford E250 and E350 Series Cargo Vans; Dodge Ram Promaster Cargo Van; Chevy Express cargo vans 1500 thru 3500 series; Mercedes Benz Sprinter 2500 thru 3500 series.


Currently there is limited need for these types of vehicles.  As the USPS fleet ages we anticipate that the rental duration and number of leases will increase of the next few years as the vehicle fleet ages.  Presently, there are not sufficient capital funds to purchase new equipment.

Submit your contact information including, your company mailing address, telephone numbers, fax and email address to the USPS contact person.
