JMHC Logistics has set the seal on a memorable year by commissioning a new fleet of 33 Mercedes-Benz Vito vans.
The business this year became one of the first courier companies to secure Van Excellence accreditation from the Freight Transport Association, and was also highly commended in the delivery operator category at the recent Commercial Fleet Awards.
Its new vans are all long-wheelbase 111 CDI models with 1.6-litre engine that offer official combined fuel economy of 45.6mpg. Supplied by Northside Truck & Van, they are the first Mercedes-Benz vans operated by JMHC Logistics.
They are the subject of a flexible, low-cost Agility funding agreement with Mercedes-Benz Financial Services.
JMHC Logistics is based in Tadcaster, North Yorkshire, and has a nationwide network of 24 delivery stations. Its mixed-marque fleet of 360 vans comprises some which it owns outright, and others which are the subject of lease and rental arrangements.
James Hall, who founded the company with his wife Rebecca, said: “Given that these are premium quality vehicles, we’re not just giving them out randomly.
"Instead, we’re making sure they go to the right people – long-serving drivers with good incident records who’ve proved they can look after their vehicles by keeping them nice and clean.”
