BIRTHDAY: New Sprinters for 100+ Logistics
Derby-based mobile phone industry supplier 100+ Logistics are celebrating their tenth anniversary by investing in a new fleet of Mercedes-Benz vans.
Obtained via Mertrux, the six Sprinter 313 CDIs are the first vehicles that have been purchased outright by the company.
Half are long-bodied vans, with the others supplied as chassis cabs, to which Alloy Bodies, of Manchester, fitted Luton boxes.
The deal also comprised Mercedes-Benz Service Care contracts, under which Mertrux will carry out all routine maintenance for a fixed fee.
“Other vans have their strengths but none can match a Sprinter as an overall package.”
Barrie Tullett, 100+ Logistics
Barrie Tullett, of 100+ Logistics, said: “Of course, other vans have their strengths but none can match a Sprinter as an overall package.
“Our vans cover anything from 60,000 to 80,000miles per year, and we have to be on site early in the morning so the engineers can start work, even if it’s as far away as Inverness or St Austell.
“This means reliability is paramount and in this respect experience has proved the Mercedes-Benz to be the best vehicle on the market – we’ve been running rented Sprinters since day one.
“What’s more, it offers excellent performance, is comfortable, driver-friendly and loaded with standard safety systems, and conveys a smart, professional image.
“The Service Care package covers all our maintenance needs for a single payment and offers excellent value for money – I would recommend it wholeheartedly.
“The fact that Mertrux service our vans overnight is another advantage.
“We can drop a vehicle off at the end of the day and collect it next morning ready to start work again, so we have virtually eliminated downtime.
“We invest in the best equipment to do the best job, and the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter definitely fits that bill.”
