KeolisAmey, a joint venture between Keolis and Amey that holds the franchise to operate and maintain the Docklands Light Railway, has taken delivery of 27 Peugeot vans.
The vehicles includes models from the Partner, Expert and Boxer van and crew van ranges, the Traveller Business passenger range and the Peugeot Built for Business conversions range.
They will be used for a variety of duties, and the panel vans have been equipped by converter Bott to carry the necessary tools and equipment.
Daniel Tweede, fleet co-ordinator for KeolisAmey Docklands, said: “We have worked very closely with Peugeot, the supplying dealer Robins and Day Peugeot Maidstone and the converters, to ensure that the vehicles meet our requirements and are as future-proofed as possible for operation within the London Ultra-Low Emissions Zone that comes into force in less than a year.”
The fleet has been funded by Groupe PSA Free2Move Lease. The vehicles have been supplied on a three-year, full maintenance contract hire agreement, which includes a replacement vehicle, where needed, within four hours.
The vehicles are expected to cover between 8,000-10,000 miles per year.
