APC Overnight goes mobile with strategic support vehicle

The Strategic Support Vehicle has advanced mobile communications that connects the vehicle to APC Overnight’s systems and network as if it was a permanent site.

“The Strategic Support Vehicle serves many purposes. It can be utilised as a disaster recovery vehicle should the need arise. The vehicle can be mobilised immediately and despatched to any part of the UK and used as a temporary depot. It has all the equipment required to operate as fully functional administration department, just like a normal operational depot within the network,” says Colin Clark, network projects manager at APC Overnight headquarters.

The vehicle has appeared at several important events, including the Kent County Show and Three Counties Show in Malvern. It will also appear at the Royal County of Berkshire Show, this autumn.

“The vehicle is set up as an onsite parcel centre allowing event visitors to ship anything they buy direct to their offices, homes or colleagues. It attracts much attention and allows us to demonstrate what APC Overnight is about to other exhibitors and visitors. We invite them on to the vehicle where we can demonstrate our IT systems and service offerings. We can also use it as a mobile classroom for onsite training,” he adds. 

APC Overnight also offers the use of the vehicle to its members for their own local events, where the high-profile liveried vehicle will help promote the work and services of the local APC depot.

“The vehicle is a resource for the entire APC network. We encourage our members to use the vehicle to help promote their APC Overnight services. They simply have to contact our headquarters to discuss their need for the vehicle,” ends Colin Clark.
