City Link has decided to standardise on Iveco’s Eurocargo for its 200-strong fleet of delivery vehicles.
The box vans and curtainsiders are used for urban distribution and are operated by a network of owner-drivers and contractors.
National fleet manager Mark Johnson said: “Our 7.5 tonne fleet comprises a mixture of different vehicle marques and we felt there was an opportunity to further enhance our productivity by standardising on the vehicle we believe is best suited to the role.
“We chose the Eurocargo for its healthy payload capacity and strong reputation in the industry for excellent reliability. A number of the other models we looked at were either uncompetitive on payload or not robust enough for the demands of multi-drop work in congested city centre environments.”
Among the first fleets to operate a new Eurocargo in City Link colours is Southampton-based Abacus Logistics, which has taken delivery of three 75E16s – a box bodied rigid and two curtainsiders.
