Four years after resolving to switch its entire fleet of home delivery vehicles to Mercedes-Benz, Iceland Foods has taken delivery of its 1,000th Sprinter panel van.
The landmark vehicle, a Sprinter 314 CDI with temperature-controlled body conversion by Paneltex, was presented to Iceland’s Commercial Fleet Manager Alex McKinlay by Steve Bridge, Managing Director of Mercedes-Benz Vans UK, and Paneltex Group Sales Director Dave Evenett.
The high-flying retailer also operates 500 chassis cabs with insulated box bodies, 300 of which wear three-pointed stars. Within the next six months Iceland will replace the remaining 200 with new Sprinters, completing its transformation to a 100% Mercedes-Benz fleet.
The Sprinters are supplied by Roanza Truck & Van – the Dealer’s flagship Deeside branch is located next-door to its high-profile customer’s headquarters – via a full contract hire package with VMS Fleet Management.
Iceland Foods has built a strong relationship with Mercedes-Benz Vans and Roanza since 2013.
