Fleet Investment sees arrival of 4 new vans
7th November, 2013
As part of their ongoing vehicle update programme, Manx Independent Carriers are pleased to announce the arrival of four new Ford Transit parcel vans to the fleet.
Supplied locally by Ian Corkill at the 4WD and Van Centre, the front wheel drive Transit 300 is ideally suited to our parcel delivery operation with its low floor height, excellent driveability and good fuel economy and is now the standard vehicle in the fleet with a total of 22 identical vans currently on the road. Standardisation means fewer spare parts need to be kept in stock and engineering staff become totally familiar with the model which helps keep maintenance costs to a minimum.
Delivery of the vans has been carefully timed to coincide with the seasonal uplift in volumes on the run up to Christmas when we expect to deliver up to 5,000 parcels every day.
