Blink Charging Co a leading provider of electric vehicle charging equipment and services, has been awarded an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract by the United States Postal Service (USPS) to supply up to 41,500 EV charging units. The chargers will support the USPS’s vehicle electrification strategy and help modernize its fleet.
Michael D. Farkas, Blink Charging’s CEO, expressed gratitude for the opportunity and praised the USPS’s commitment to sustainability. He also noted that the move towards electrification could inspire other fleet owners to follow suit.
Under the contract, Blink will supply its Series 7 dual-port charger, which can provide up to 80 amps of power at each port and allows two vehicles to charge simultaneously on the Universal J1772 connector at 19.2kW. The NEMA 3R outdoor-rated enclosure enables flexible installation either indoors or outdoors, while the compact design makes it easy to mount on a wall or pedestal. The charging cables, which are either 18 or 25 feet long, provide greater flexibility for postal locations.
Blink offers a range of fleet products and services designed to promote sustainable practices and green initiatives, including innovative hardware and software that connects vehicles, drivers, and EV chargers. With power management controls and the ability to build on existing EV charging infrastructure, Blink’s products can help fleet owners maximize savings on cost and reduce lifetime vehicle maintenance expenses.
