WASHINGTON - Electric transportation provider ZAP announced the inclusion of its vehicles on the General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule 78, number GS-03F-0051W, expanding opportunities in the government fleet market.
ZAP's entire line of electric trucks and vans, along with its ATV, are now available through GSA and can be found on the "GSA Advantage!" online ordering Web site. These include the Zaptruck XL, Zapvan, and ZAP Dude ATV. Approval by GSA makes ZAP vehicles more readily accessible to U.S. government agencies and their respective purchasing agents around the world, according to the manufacturer.
As the federal government's purchasing agent, GSA connects federal purchasers with the most cost-effective and high-quality commercial products and services. The GSA Schedule procurement system provides streamlined access to specialized industry partners. Founded in 1949, GSA influences the management of $24 billion in federal assets, including 8,600 government-owned or leased buildings and 213,000 vehicles, based on recent reports.
Over the past year, the manufacturer has supplied its Zaptruck XL to multiple federal and state agencies, including the Federal Aviation Administration and the U.S. Military. GSA qualification expedites the acquisition process and is an endorsement that would facilitate sale of ZAP's vehicles to government agencies, and enhance market visibility and market access.
