Ford releases new Transit
19 July 2012
In a tough business environment like the one currently seen in the UK, companies know that any initiative to cut costs and improve efficiency can help make a difference to their profits and losses.
Van leasing is one of the simpler ways to produce a positive impact on the balance sheet.
As vehicles deteriorate through heavy usage they become less reliable and need replacing as a broken down van cannot earn any money. Purchasing new models is often a significant outlay especially in unforeseen circumstances.
Contract hire simplifies things by streamlining expenses into recurring money payments and often works out far less expensive than actually buying new vans as and when they are needed.
Not only are finances simpler to regulate, but van leasing can ensure that businesses find it easier to switch between vehicles to get the one that is the most appropriate to their needs.
Ford has just released a new version of its ever-popular Transit, which the manufacturer claims has the best load-carrying ability in its class.
The Transit Custom has a load-carrying volume of six cubic metres and this is coupled with the largest side door opening available to make it capable of fitting in three loaded Euro pallets.
Barry Gale, commercial vehicles chief engineer at Ford of Europe, commented: "The additional features we have built into the loadspace make everyday functions more convenient - so it's easier for customers to do their job."
He added that not only was it functional, but it was stylish too.
Van leasing customers can also rest assured that none of the brand's legendary reliability has been compromised with the latest improvements.
"The Transit has a hard-earned reputation for bullet-proof reliability, and we’re confident the new model will follow in the same tradition," said Kevin Strutt, supervisor of commercial vehicle durability at the group.
