Premium express delivery company City Link has made a multi million pound investment in new vehicles to ensure it stays ahead of the pack. City Link, the leading UK express carrier has placed an order for 300 Mercedes Sprinter vans, specially-equipped for the fast-paced, time-critical industry.
The Sprinters will be used for the collection and delivery of parcels for Customers and will further boost the 3,500-strong fleet, replacing a number of older vehicles. Each one will be equipped with reverse warning systems and immobilisers, offering greater security and safety.
Stuart Godman, Sales & Marketing Director, City Link commented: At City Link we work by the ethos of service, service, service and recognise the importance of investing in our business to improve the service we offer and is another sign of our commitment to our Customers. This investment of 300 top-of-the-range Mercedes Sprinters to replace older vehicles will improve the safety, security and reliability of our vans.
