Blink Charging, Heartland Charging Services’ strategic partner, announced this week that they were awarded an indefinite-delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract with the United States Postal Service (USPS).
Blink Charging to provide up to 41,500 EV chargers to the USPS
Blink will provide up to 41,500 EV chargers to the USPS as it transitions its delivery fleet to electric vehicles.
Only three months ago the USPS announced they would be transitioning away from buying new internal combustion delivery trucks in favor of switching over to electric trucks. After 2026 they intend to only purchase electric vehicles.
The USPS is working with Oshkosh Defense for electric delivery trucks and with Ford for E-Transit Vans.
Blink Charging applauds standards for Made-in-America EV network
The Biden administration recently announced new standards for a Made-in-America national network of electric vehicle chargers. The plan includes creating a national network of 500,000 electric vehicle chargers along America’s highways and throughout communities of all sizes nationwide.
Blink Charging’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael D. Farkas applauds the new standards and says “We appreciate the Administration recognizing our efforts to expand our manufacturing capabilities here in the U.S. and being highlighted in the White House announcement today. We will continue to work with the Administration, the Federal Highway Administration, and our state and local government partners to assist with building out the much-needed EV infrastructure in support of advancing EVs around the country.”
