TAYLOR, Mich., July 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Atlas Oil Company has been awarded the three-year contract for emergency fuel delivery by the United States Postal Service (USPS), valued at $1.5 million. The contract is effective June 1, 2020 through May 31, 2023, with options for extension through 2027.
Atlas has been the prime awardee of the USPS emergency mobile fueling contract since 2013, which previously covered the continental U.S. The new contract has expanded to cover all 50 states, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and includes gasoline and diesel fuel for USPS generators and its extensive fleet of vehicles.
“We consider this contract a great honor and take this responsibility very seriously because of the mission critical nature of mail service for everything from prescription drugs to Social Security payments,” said Atlas’ Vice President of Emergency Services, Jeremy Whiddon. “As we’ve seen recently with the COVID-19 pandemic– if you don’t have a contracted vendor with diversified supply points and nationwide reach, you’re going to run into potentially fatal supply challenges. Our technology, logistics, supply, and experienced emergency fueling team provides our customers’ peace of mind knowing Atlas is ready to support operational uptime anywhere, at any time.”
