Nottinghamshire-based lift installation and servicing specialist Morris Vermaport has risen to the challenge to cut costs and improve efficiency.
It’s taken delivery of 12 Mercedes-Benz Citan vans to replace petrol-electric hybrid cars and larger vans used by installation teams
It’s taken delivery of 12 Mercedes-Benz Citan vans to replace petrol-electric hybrid cars and larger vans used by installation teams.
Morris Vermaport, which supports customers nationwide from headquarters in Chilwell, Nottingham, takes very seriously its responsibility toward the environment and one of its stated core values is a commitment to source and provide sustainable products and service delivery.
It moved away from the hybrid cars in its fleet because of rising vehicle tax rates. Supplied by Nottingham Dealer Mertrux, the new Citan 111 CDIs have 81 kW (110 hp) diesel engines.
“By contrast, the rates on the Citans were much lower,” said Operations Director Andrew Waddell. “There’s not a lot to choose between the two vehicles in terms of mpg returns – the hybrids are good around town but less so on longer runs, or when fully loaded, which is when the Citan really shows its class.”
