Beginning in 2018 the Postal Service purchased new lift gates – equipment on the rear of a truck that helps load and unload mail containers from the truck. The lift gates were designed to save costs through efficiency and improved safety. The new lift gates are a tuck-under style (moves out from beneath the truck) and were purchased to replace forklifts at facilities without a loading dock.
