Amtrak Sprints Ahead with Vehicle Replacement Programme PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 17 April 2008
Amtrak is continuing its investment programme with 100 Mercedes Sprinters on order for delivery by the end of the year.

The first 50 Mercedes Sprinter 311CDIs will be delivered in July, with the rest due by December. Amtrak has already invested in almost 100 Ford Transits (350CDI Long Wheel Base) for its C+D fleet.

Managing Director Alan Jones explains: “We will have one of the most modern fleets in the business, increasing efficiency, reliability and, importantly, helping us meet our commitment to reducing carbon emissions.”

Last year, Amtrak added 18 double-deck trailers to the six already in its fleet, to cut the number of trunking vehicles between its Aldridge hub and 57 depots nationwide.

“Investment in IT systems, giving us full visibility throughout the network with real-time PODs, and some reorgansiation of the depot network, have also helped us to run the most efficient operation possible,” says Mr Jones. “The new vehicles are part of our continued investment in the company as we build the business and expand the customer base.”

The vans have been supplied by Reflex Vehicle Solutions Ltd.
