Logistics firm Menzies Distribution is adding more than 100 Volkswagen Crafter vans to its fleet.

The new vans will be a mix of standard and long-wheelbase Crafters, in Startline trim.

The vans are being supplied by Lookers Volkswagen Van Centre in Glasgow, through its partnership with Lex Autolease, with a new livery to match Menzies’s recent brand refresh.

The company is said to have chosen the Crafter for its low aerodynamic drag, load compartment height of up to 2.196m, and side loading and opening width of 1.311m. 

Menzies Distribution fleet and procurement director Adam Purshall said: “We’re delighted to expand our Crafter fleet, having been impressed with their reliability and aftersales from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles since we started our partnership in 2019. 

“In addition to the expansion of our dedicated electric fleet, which we aim to roll out far ahead of any regulatory deadlines, it’s imperative that we upgrade our traditional fleet with the very best in class. 

“Final mile and urban deliveries continue to be an important part of the work Menzies Distribution undertakes and we are pleased to be able to operate in any part of the country with a full Euro 6 fleet.”
