VMS Vehicle Hire is expanding its fleet of refrigerated vans by more than 250 due to a £10million investment.
The new vans for the rental division of VMS Fleet Management will include Mercedes-Benz Sprinters and Vitos and Renault Masters and Trafics, including short, medium and long wheelbase models and Lutons.
Configurations will include single and twin evaporator systems, single and dual compartments, chilled, frozen and dual temperature with standby.
The new vans are due to be rolled out between January and April in locations around the UK, including Warrington, Tamworth, Stevenage and Sunderland.
VMS Fleet Management managing director Martin James said: “The investment of over 250 new refrigerated vans for our ever growing division VMS Vehicle Hire is an exciting step forward for us as a business.
“With the need for refrigerated vans being higher than it ever has before, we want to ensure that our customers always have access to the best, top of the range vehicles at all times.”
VMS says that all the new vans will be compliant with the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ), which is being introduced in central London on 8 April, allowing all its customers to meet the required standard before it comes into force.
James said: “We fully understand the impact vehicles have on the environment, which is why I believe wholeheartedly in investing money into areas of the business that can help with the new ULEZ laws coming into place.
“I have always believed in helping our customers make smarter and better decisions when it comes to their fleet requirements that will not only save their business money, but will have less effect on the environment too.”
