Balanced van fleets cut costs, claims Glass's

Date: 23 November 2007

Van operators should mix their fleets rather than depend on 3.5-tonne panel vans, whose loading volumes and capacities are unnecessarily high for many jobs.

That is the verdict of EurotaxGlass's chief commercial vehicle editor George Alexander, who claimed mixed fleets' lower initial investment levels generate stronger RVs and cut operational costs.

Alexander maintained: "A mixed fleet with a number of 3.5-tonners to tackle the big jobs and smaller vans utilised where appropriate might be a more suitable answer for many fleet managers."
