Mercedes-Benz Citan is Topspeed’s top pick

Topspeed Couriers have topped up their initial order for 10 Mercedes-Benz Citan vans with an order for a further five.

Founded in 1986, Topspeed provides event, process and time-critical transport solutions for clients with hazardous, secure, nuclear and medical logistics requirements.

The company operates a fleet of more than 50 vans from bases throughout the UK. Vehicles are managed using a  tracking system and maintained in-house at the company’s Knutsford headquarters.

Topspeed was already running larger Mercedes-Benz Vito and Sprinter vans when it made its first investments in the new model, following a series of contracts ‘wins’. Its Citans are all Long-bodied 109 CDIs and powered by clean-burning 66 kW (90 hp) common-rail diesel engines.

Stephen Clegg, Topspeed’s Managing Director, said: “With hard-earned reputations to guard, our private and public sector customers expect the very highest standards and we need to be sure that the fleet can cope with tough operational requirements.

“Our vans cover high mileages but we cannot use this as an excuse for a breakdown. Only Mercedes-Benz offers us the reliability, longevity and ease of maintenance, coupled with comprehensive warranty cover and back-up, which we need.”

And he adds: “We will need more vehicles as our business continues to grow, and provided these vans continue to live up to our expectations I feel sure that Topspeed Couriers will be making further purchases from Mercedes-Benz.”
