Record Breaking Sprinter
We are delighted to announce that the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter has collected the highly-prized ‘Fleet Van of the Year’ accolade at the Motor Transport Awards, for the unprecedented ninth year!
Held on Wednesday night at Grosvenor House Hotel in London, the Motor Transport Awards are widely recognised as the industry ‘Oscars’, and are judged by a panel of experts.
The Motor Transport jury of fleet van operators felt the all-round package from Mercedes-Benz – reliability, performance and operational efficiency – gave it the edge over its rivals.
“We have a very demanding operation, which puts the focus on reliability and durability,” one judge commented. “The Sprinters we run make a significant contribution to our operation. When something does go wrong, which isn’t very often, the Mercedes network is quick to react and get us back on the road.”
“That three-pointed star on the grille counts for a lot,” another judge commented. “We know what we’re going to get, a reliable, consistent performer.”
Since the ‘Fleet Van of the Year’ category was introduced at the Motor Transport Awards 14 years ago, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter has lifted the trophy in 2003, 2004, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012, and 2013.
This is an outstanding achievement, and one which we should all be very proud of
