Amtrak takes on Iveco vans

A NATIONAL delivery company has taken delivery of 17 Iveco Daily City Trucks from an initial order of 126 vehicles.

Amtrak Express Parcels plans to use the vehicles to distribute parcels across the UK to both its customers and depots with Amtrak running the vehicles on a three-year/unlimited mileage contract hire agreement with Powermarque.

The 2.3-litre HPI Ivecos are expected to cover 30,000 miles a year and will be based at Amtrak's Croydon, Norwich and Kirkcaldy branches.

Tony Jones, transport manager at Amtrak, said: 'The Iveco Daily City Trucks are ideally suited to our operation and have made a positive impact on our business.

'Our customers need to know that their vital parcels and consignments will be delivered on time, every time, and so choosing the right vehicle for the job is critical.'

The contract covers all routine servicing and maintenance as well as tyres and emergency roadside assistance.
