The competition was run as part of Burnt Tree’s ongoing collaboration with APC Overnight, and the van will be supplied by City West Commercial Vehicles in partnership with Burnt Tree Contract Hire.
The addition of the vehicle to its 36-strong fleet will help the courier firm to continue to provide a first-class delivery service for over 350 business customers across Birmingham and the West Midlands from its base on Mainstream Industrial Park.
With last year having seen the business deliver and collect a record 1,300,000 parcels, Trax Express Systems Ltd hopes to increase its uptake this year, having already recorded a 28% increase in deliveries & collections. The company plans to increase capacity with a move to a new 30,000 sq ft warehouse in Birmingham in early 2015.
Commenting on the win, Craig Mallabone, director at Trax Express Systems Ltd, said: ‘As we already have a number of Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans within our fleet, we know our drivers can count on them for reliable and economical collection & delivery of parcels across Birmingham.
‘We can’t underestimate the impact the addition of one new vehicle to our fleet will make as it will undoubtedly improve the service we offer for so many businesses in and around the city. The last 12 months couldn’t have gone much better for us as a business, and this really is the icing on the cake!’
