It won’t be long before your mail is powered by Ford.

The United State Postal Service awarded a lucrative contract to Oshkosh to build its Next-Generation Delivery Vehicle to replace aging vans that have been on the road well over 30 years.

The newest vans, according to Reuters, will be powered by engines and all-electric powertrains produced by the Big Blue Oval.

No word yet on what types of engines or electric powertrains that will be however.

Ford told the Roadshow at cnet.com that they’ll also be providing Oshkosh with “suspensions and other components to help the USPS continue to deliver for the American people for years to come."
