Oshkosh Defense has been awarded a $342 million contract to produce trailers for the U.S. Army.

Oshkosh will partner with Broshuis, B.V to execute the contract and produce an estimated 557 Medium Equipment Trailers (MET).

The MET is a six-axle trailer designed to be pulled by the Oshkosh Enhanced Heavy Equipment Transporter (EHET) M1300 Tractor with the ability to obtain European road permissions at required payloads and negotiate highway overpasses. The combined MET and EHET system is capable of transporting military equipment weighing up to 60-tons.

The five-year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract includes the option for two additional years.

“We appreciate the U.S. Army’s continued confidence in our logistics solutions that play a pivotal role in the swift global deployment of mission-critical equipment,” said Pat Williams, Chief Programs Officer for Oshkosh Defense. “These trailers, paired with the Oshkosh EHET, are vital to surviving the rigors of modern combat and addressing the challenges of contested logistics.”

The first trailers are expected to be delivered in May 2024 to support Product Qualification Testing and Operational Testing.
