A van centre in Taunton has risen to the fuel efficiency challenge after securing a £600,000 deal with a national fork lift truck supplier.
STILL UK, the leading provider of material handling equipment and warehouse solutions, has taken delivery of a fleet of Volkswagen Transporters from Taunton Van Centre, as part of its drive to reduce fuel consumption.
The Volkswagen T5 vans are to be used by STILL’s nationwide network of field engineers that manage the service and maintenance contracts of its fork lift and warehouse trucks.
The powerful and fuel efficient engines were key reasons why STILL turned to Volkswagen vans, as Steve Howell, STILL UK’s logistics manager explained.
He said: "As we provide a nationwide intralogistic service to our customers it is imperative as a company that we not only operate a reliable fleet but also one that provides appealing fuel efficiency savings without sacrificing power or load space.
"The Volkswagen Transporters comfortably met our requirements and the Taunton team ensured a smooth transition."
Graeme Panton, head of business at Taunton Van Centre, said: "The latest Transporter provides commercial vehicle operators with a quieter yet more powerful engine offering significant fuel savings and lower CO2 emissions that meet the Euro 5 emissions standards set by the European parliament.
"With the ongoing developments of the Volkswagen range we look forward to strengthening our relationship with STILL UK."
