Oshkosh has won a $21.7 million contract to supply trailers for US Army’s Palletized Load System (PLS) vehicles, the US Department of Defense said in a statement Monday.
According to the company, the trailers offer the military personnel the versatility, reliability and performance needed to support transportation missions in hazardous environments. The three-axle trailer has the ability to carry an 8×20 foot flatrack with a 16.5-ton payload. It can accommodate both fully- and partially-loaded flatracks and be loaded directly from the PLS truck using the Load Handling System (LHS) – increasing mission efficiency while decreasing personnel fatigue.
Work will be performed in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, with an estimated completion date of April 30, 2021.
