Fiat Professional gets on the right track

Date: Friday, December 19, 2014

Fiat Professional has won a new fleet contract with Network Rail to provide 283 of its Doblo Cargo vans.

The vehicles wil be used by technicians to carry out their day-to-day operation and maintenance of Britain's rail network.

The vans are Doblo Cargo and Doblo Crew, all powered by 1.3 MultiJet II 90hp engines.

While they require no factory modifications, they will be sent to Bri-Stor Systems in Staffordshire before delivery to have their graphics applied and any racking and storage requested by Network Rail fitted to the load area.

Network Rail is responsible for the care and maintenance of 20,000 miles of rail tracks and infrastructure as well as 18 major railway stations, 2500 peripheral railway stations, 8200 commercial properties and 32,000 bridges and tunnels.

Sebastian Fedrigo, head of Fiat Professional UK, said: "Being chosen by Network Rail to supply its fleet of maintenance vehicles is not just a major vote of confidence in the robustness, efficiency, versatility and commercial sense of Fiat Professional products, we feel it also recognises the quality of our aftersales care as well as our ability to meet the exacting requirements of every single customer, from individual user-choosers to large company fleets."
