FORD’S big Transit 2 Tonne is not only a hit in the UK, but is proving a hit Stateside, too.

Charter Communications of Stamford, Connecticut – the fourth-largest cable operator in the United States – has ordered 800 low-roof Transit vans.

Charter Communications’ technicians will use the Ford Transit  to transport equipment for installing and servicing Internet, TV and phone customer homes across 29 states.

“The handling, safety features, cargo space and fuel efficiency were all contributing factors to our choice and our technicians will be well equipped to serve our customers with these vans,” said Kathy Carrington, senior vice president of corporate services at Charter.

Charter is one of the first large fleets to order the new Transit van, which went on sale in June in the States.
