npower van drivers have their say

Van drivers at energy firm npower got a chance to have their say in vehicle choice thanks to a commercial vehicle roadshow.

Fleet suppliers Venson organised the event, with five manufacturers – Ford, Citroën, Peugeot, Vauxhall and Volkswagen – showing off their range of vans.

MeterPlus, the metering business of npower, operates almost 1,000 light commercial vans. Next year around 600 are due to be replaced and a further 50 will be renewed this year.

Stuart Lee, business support manager for MeterPlus, who oversees the fleet operation, said: “Previously, drivers have provided feedback on the vehicle specifications we have opted for and that has raised a number of issues.

“As we have a major fleet replacement programme over the next 18 months we have engaged drivers in the advanced decision-making process.

“It is important that the drivers are happy with the vehicle they are provided with.”
