ARVAL made quick work of delivering an order for 10 minibuses to CAT in just under a month.
A fleet of Renault Trafic Passenger minibuses were delivered to CAT‘s Southampton branch last week after undergoing modifications including strengthened straps to counteract doors swinging open quickly, door alarms, reversing warning alarms, front facing cameras and vehicle branding.
The dCi 95 ENERGY twin turbo Euro 6 models with stop start and 155 g/km of CO2 minibuses will be used in CAT intensive compound handling operations to ferry drivers to collection points within production facilities or distribution centre environments where vehicles need to be moved into storage or despatch lanes. The Renaults help to reduce the amount of time waiting for drivers and increase the company’s capacity for vehicle movements to enable full optimisation of the handling process.
Amit Birly, purchasing manager at CAT, said: “For operational purposes, we needed these minibuses very quickly and modified to fit our needs exactly.
“Arval met this brief impressively, delivering them on time, on budget and exactly as specified. We are very pleased with the service we have received.”
Arnaud Bosvieux, head of sales at Arval, added: “We have a long term relationship with CAT through our parent, BNP Paribas and, thanks to this and our relationship with Renault UK, we were able to hit some very tight deadlines for this deal.
“It is always satisfying to be able to meet and exceed customer expectations in this manner and I’m very proud of the way the team at Arval fulfilled this order.”
