Central Auto Supplies moves towards a greener fleet

Central Auto Supplies (CAS) has taken delivery of a major Citroën LCV order to further improve the fuel efficiency and emissions profile of its delivery fleet. The Wellingborough-based company, which has 19 depots, primarily in the Midlands and East Anglia, has bought 41 Nemo 1.4HDi LX vans and two Relay 35 L3H2 120 vans. 

The new Nemo vans were chosen for their fuel efficiency and low emissions during a stringent selection process that reflects the high demands of the delivery fleet. With more Nemos expected to join the CAS fleet later this year, well over half of the company’s 100+ delivery fleet will be made up of Nemos - which regularly return over 60mpg in service.

Peter Jipson, CAS operations manager, explains, “CAS is committed to reducing the environmental footprint of its vehicle fleet, through driver training and the specification of state-of-the-art technology. As such, the Nemo - which is the UK’s most fuel efficient van and has the lowest CO2 emissions for a high cube LCV van - is an excellent fit for our business. We are delighted with the Nemo’s 60+mpg fuel economy capability on our multi-drop delivery pattern and its low cost of operation - while our drivers benefit from a high level of comfort and safety equipment.”
