Press Release, Oshkosh, 27 November 2023: Oshkosh Defense announced that the US Army Contracting Command – Detroit Arsenal (ACC-DTA) awarded a production contract for the Medium Equipment Trailer (MET).

Oshkosh will partner with Broshuis, B.V to execute the $342 million contract. The five-year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract includes the option for two additional years and calls for Oshkosh to produce an estimated 557 trailers.

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. In September 2022, the US Army also selected Oshkosh to produce the Enhanced Heavy Equipment Transporter System (EHETS).

“We appreciate the US Army’s continued confidence in our logistics solutions that play a pivotal role in the swift global deployment of mission-critical equipment,” stated Pat Williams, chief programmes officer for Oshkosh Defense. “These trailers, paired with the Oshkosh EHET, are vital to surviving the rigours of modern combat and addressing the challenges of contested logistics.”

Oshkosh Defense will deliver the first trailers in May 2024 to support Product Qualification Testing and Operational Testing.
