PACKAGING supplies business, Hatfield-based Lightning Packaging Supplies, has recently added three Mercedes Sprinters to its business vans, supplied by S & B Commercials.
“Our aim has always been to provide a complete, reliable and unrivalled service to our customers, Lightning Packaging Supplies transport manager Gary Morley told Business Vans. “Our Mercedes Vans and Trucks help us achieve this, they are very reliable and the service we get from S & B Commercials is great.”
The new Mercedes Sprinter range, introduced last last year, offers fuel efficiency improved by seven per cent over the outgoing version, with BlueEFFICIENCY variants incorporating a number of additional measures designed to further reduce diesel consumption by as much as 6%, to 44.4 mpg.
The vehicle’s safety equipment includes several world ‘firsts’, including the Crosswind Assist system, which detects sudden strong gusts of wind and helps to prevent the van drifting out of its lane by applying individual brakes on one side of the vehicle.
Electronic aids additionally available as options include Collision Prevention Assist, Blind Spot Assist, Highbeam Assist and Lane Keeping Assist.
The new Sprinter range includes a long-body 313 CDI model.
Lightning Packaging Supplies offers a wide range of packaging materials including corrugated cases, postal packing supplies, polythene products, strappings, packing room equipment tapes, cushioning products and custom made packaging products.
