Oshkosh Private Jet Tag N410SK Flew Into Clarksville, TN a few days after the USPS award was announced. They have never flown into anywhere near this prior to that date
I'll break down the significance
Oshkosh won the usps next generation delivery vehicles contract for all the new trucks. They are going to be making a good majority of these as EVs using batteries. The award is an indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract, meaning that after an initial dollar commitment, the Postal Service will have the ongoing ability to order more NGDV over a fixed period of time, in this case,10 years.

The infrastructure bill that just passed includes funding to increase the percentage of USPS NGDV (next generation delivery vehicles) to be electric vehicles, hence needing more batteries.
