Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has secured a deal to provide East Riding of Yorkshire Council with 129 new vans.
The council’s procurement team considered reliability, service, maintenance and whole-life costs when choosing a fleet partner.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council has ordered a mix of vehicles including Caddy and Caddy Maxi vans, short wheel base and long wheel base Transporter panel vans and Crafter panel vans in a variety of wheelbases.
The vans will be used by the council’s property maintenance teams – consisting of a full mix of trades including builders, plumbers, electricians, ground staff and pest control teams. Each vehicle supplied has been carefully selected for the business area it will be operating in, with many featuring bespoke specifications to make life on board more efficient for drivers.
Carl Gillyon, fleet services manager at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: ‘We require a diverse range of vehicles to undertake a variety of maintenance tasks we are responsible for across our region. Volkswagen offers an extensive range of commercial vehicles that meets our entire fleet requirements perfectly.’
