RH Logistics, a specialist transporter of high-value medical equipment, has added three Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 316 CDI Long vans to its fleet.
The vehicles, acquired with funding support from Mercedes-Benz Financial Services, are chassis cabs with 163PS engines and aerodynamic ‘Eco Box’ Luton bodywork built in Manchester by Alloy Bodies.
The new arrivals have lined up alongside the operator’s 12 other Sprinters – three more Lutons and nine panel vans – and six French-built vehicles.
RH Logistics transports a wide variety of equipment including ultrasound systems, monitors, transducers, ventilators and incubators, as well as offering full asset management and storage solutions – its 25,000 sq ft warehouse can accommodate more than 600 pallets.
Managing director Richard Hindle said: "Our vehicles typically cover 150,000 miles a year and are impressively fuel-efficient – the latest ‘Eco Box’ vehicles are returning 32mpg, which is an excellent figure.
"Given the profiles of some of our clients, brand image is also very important to us, and here, too, our Sprinters give us an edge.
"Even after three years on the road they still look new, while there is a definite perception that if you’re running a Mercedes-Benz then you must be a professional, reputable company.”
