Performance on tarmac and paper

An in-depth advertorial feature from the fleet with depth


Life as a Fleet Manager is complicated enough. So why make it harder by sourcing your fleet from more than one manufacturer?

Instead, choose the right single manufacturer, and you will be able to find a full range of vehicles to meet all your fleet requirements, with less hard work, less complexity – and potentially for less cost too. And when they are vehicles that share all the best qualities of the eight times Motor Transport Awards Fleet Van of the Year, what have you got to lose?

Keeping it in the family

The family of vans we’re talking about is Mercedes-Benz. From the Citan for city manoeuvrability, to the highly versatile Vito and last but not least, the Sprinter, they share the family values of safety, fuel-efficiency and whole-life cost benefits.

The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is regularly praised by operators, and voted for by Motor Transport readers for its fuel economy, low running costs and strong residual values . But with the Citan and Vito to add to the mix – and a choice of Panel Van, Dualiner and Traveliner models – you can fill your fleet with Mercedes-Benz vehicles to meet all your transportation requirements, large or small. And keep your drivers as happy as your Finance Manager.

Safer drivers

There are two things every business wants to take care of: its drivers and its budgets. By choosing Mercedes-Benz vehicles for your fleet, you can do both at once.

The Citan, Vito and Sprinter all offer class-leading safety, including Adaptive ESP® as standard. Combined with real driver comfort, it means even on the longest journeys drivers stay alert and safe. And while you’re protecting your drivers, you’re also protecting your company’s reputation, by associating it with a name synonymous with quality and high standards.

Railway Drainage Ltd. has recently invested in a fleet of long Citan 109 CDI vans, because – as Safety Director Paul Saddington puts it – “We wanted to complement our own reputation as a quality business. Our staff are delighted with their new vans. They’re proud to be driving Mercedes-Benz vehicles.”

Safer investment

Whilst Mercedes-Benz vans are looking after your drivers, they’re also looking after your investment.

By combining maximum write-down values with exceptionally competitive whole-life costs, they deliver outstanding cost-efficiency. Efficiency which is supported by MobiloVan UK, complimentary 24-hour European-wide roadside assistance, and a nationwide network of specialist Commercial Vehicle Dealer workshops, staffed with qualified technicians.

Over a third of these are open 24 hours a day during the working week, and more than 90% operate at least two shifts daily. So servicing and maintenance can be arranged to suit you, and to keep more of your fleet on the road for longer.
