Citroen Berlingo goes up in the world with AFI-Uplift
Wakefield-based AFI-Uplift has recently taken delivery of 22 Citroen Berlingo Enterprise HDi 90 vans and plans to replace the remainder of its 30+ service van fleet by the second quarter of 2011.
Nick Higgins, AFI-Uplift's operations director, said: 'We have been very pleased with our Citroen Dispatch vans. Now, in line with the company's process of continuous improvement, we have specified Berlingo vans for use by our skilled service engineers to provide further environmental and fuel efficiency gains. The use of the Berlingo's standard Trafficmaster Smartnav satellite navigation system will also provide further efficiency gains by making it easier for our service engineers to get to sites.'
In addition to the standard specification, AFI-Uplift has specified ply-lining, alarms, full steel bulkheads and roof-mounted light bars. Based throughout AFI-Uplift's 18 strong UK depot network, the Berlingo Enterprise vans are expected to have a three-year/100,000-mile service life.
