Europcar Mobility Group UK has opened the latest in its network of Van Supersites in Cardiff.
The new facility, on Dominion Way Industrial Estate, means there are now 12 such sites across the UK.
It offers standard short- and long-wheelbase vans, which can be available within four hours of booking, and optional features for operators needing specialist vehicles, such as livery, built-in racking, tow bars, and beacons.
Chapter 8 vehicles are also available.
Europcar Vans and Trucks LCV sales director Stuart Russell said: “As we continue to see sustained growth for our commercial vehicle services through 2020 and into Q1 2021, with no foreseeable let-up in demand, we have quickly recognised the need to expand our existing network of Van Supersites to give us a better footprint across the UK.
“Where we had historically serviced demand from South Wales through our Bristol operation, our geographical heat map based on the number of deliveries over the past 12 months, told us that we needed to focus on providing a strong local centre in Wales.
“The new Cardiff Van Supersite will therefore address several key issues. We can provide a more local, on the doorstep, service for urgent bookings from businesses in South Wales as well as reduce the delivery and collection miles driven which in turn reduces our customers’ fuel costs.
“We will also be strengthening our Welsh supply chain for vehicle repairs to improve our vehicle down time management in the region. Welsh repairs will be done in Wales, providing another important boost for local businesses.”
