Network Rail has taken delivery of the first of almost 300 Fiat Doblo Cargo vehicles it has ordered.
The SWB Cargo vans and SWB Crew vans will be used by Network Rail technicians as they inspect and maintain 20,000 miles of track and thousands of National Rail assets around the UK.
Sebastian Fedrigo, head of Fiat Professional UK, said: “Being chosen by Network Rail to supply its fleet of maintenance vehicles is not just a major vote of confidence in the robustness, efficiency, versatility and commercial sense of Fiat Professional products, we feel it also recognises the quality of our aftersales care.”
The order is for a total of 283 Doblo vans powered by 1.3 Multijet II 90hp engines. They are sent to Bri-Stor Systems in Staffordshire before delivery to have livery applied and any racking and storage requested by Network Rail fitted to the load area.
