Canadian armed forces seek new medium trucks

26th July 2013 - 17:32 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Canadian government has kicked off a programme to acquire new medium trucks for the Canadian armed forces, with the issue of a new Request for Proposals (RFP) on 25 July.

Public Works and Government Services Canada and the Department of National Defence began industry engagement on the programme in January, when a Letter of Interest was issued. This was followed by one-on-one meetings with industry representatives between 17 to 23 January, 2013.

The government is seeking a new fleet of up to 1500 medium-sized trucks and associated logistics to replace and modernise the Canadian armed forces’ current fleet of medium-sized logistics trucks. The standard military pattern vehicle requirement includes both the acquisition of five variants of the vehicle and associated equipment as well as in-service support for the life of the vehicle.

Vehicle testing and other government evaluations are scheduled to take place during 2014. The awarding of a contract is expected to be announced in fall 2015, with the delivery of the first vehicle expected in summer 2017, and final delivery by summer 2018.
