Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has secured a £1.7 million deal to supply over 80 Transporter vans to Arcus Engineering who operate the refrigeration maintenance contract in the Southeast for Sainsbury’s.
The fleet comprises the new, more fuel-efficient Transporter launched earlier this year, along with some of Volkswagen’s smaller vans, including the Caddy, to work in and around London.
The vehicles, their interior conversions and contract hire agreement have been managed by Lex Autolease.
Arcus fleet manager, Janet Bass, said: "It was imperative that we launched Arcus Engineering with a fleet that was reliable and robust.
"Abridge Van Centre was very helpful throughout the process by providing a range of demonstrator vehicles that we could test at our leisure before making the decision."
