Menzies Distribution vans

Lookers Volkswagen Van Centre in Glasgow has secured a contract to supply more than 100 new Volkswagen Crafter panel vans to Menzies Distribution.

Menzies recently expanded in Scotland after acquiring West Lothian-based logistics company JBT Distribution.

Lookers said the contract was a ‘significant win’ for its business in Scotland and a positive sign of future growth.

Fraser Simpson, general sales manager at Lookers Volkswagen Van Centre in Glasgow, said: “Menzies Distribution is a growth-focused, ambitious and innovative company delivering solutions to help business right across the UK and we’re delighted to have been chosen as its commercial partner to support its continued expansion.

“Packed with technology and with an unbeatable design, the new Volkswagen Crafter panel van is designed for companies who want to get large and small jobs done well and these outstanding vehicles will add significantly to Menzies’ nationwide fleet.

“We’re proud to be associated with a business of this scale and calibre and delighted to be supporting its growing team.”

Menzies Distribution recently took delivery of the first vehicles from an order for 115 new generation MAN TGX trucks.

Adam Purshall, fleet and procurement director, said: “In addition to the expansion of our dedicated electric fleet, which we aim to roll out far ahead of any regulatory deadlines, it’s imperative that we upgrade our traditional fleet with the very best in class.

“Final mile and urban deliveries continue to be an important part of the work Menzies Distribution undertakes and we must be able to operate in any part of the country without additional cost – something we have guaranteed by having a full Euro 6 fleet.”
