Automotive logistics specialist CAT UK has received an order for 10 minibuses from Arval in just under a month.

The Renault Trafic Passenger dCi 95 ENERGY twin turbo Euro 6 models with stop start and 155g/km of CO2 were delivered to the company’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 vehicles are being deployed in CAT UK’s 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.

Amit Birly, purchasing manager at CAT UK, 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.”
