Scotland based Menzies Distribution has agreed a deal to buy 100 new VW Crafter, diesel powered vans. These are to be deployed to carry out operations in parcel delivery, retail and healthcare.
The vans meet Euro 6 emissions requirements and have low drag coefficient, allowing for greater fuel efficiency. Menzies has bought standard and long-wheelbase vehicles.
“We’re delighted to expand our Crafter fleet, having been impressed with their reliability and aftersales from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles since we started our partnership in 2019,” commented Adam Purshall, fleet and procurement director, Menzies Distribution.
“In addition to the expansion of our dedicated electric fleet, which we aim to roll out far ahead of any regulatory deadlines, it’s imperative that we upgrade our traditional fleet with the very best in class. Final-mile and urban deliveries continue to be an important part of the work Menzies Distribution undertakes and we are pleased to be able to operate in any part of the country with a full Euro 6 fleet.”
“We are delighted Menzies Distribution has selected the Volkswagen Crafter to upgrade its fleet, recognizing its award-winning combination of efficiency, practicality and safety,” added Claire English, head of fleet for Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.
“Menzies has been serving communities for over 100 years, and like us, is eager to ensure its future operations make a positive environmental impact. We look forward to a long and fruitful partnership.”
