PEUGEOT SELECTED TO SUPPLY KEOLISAMEY DOCKLANDS LIGHT COMMERCIAL VEHICLE FLEET

Tuesday, 29 January 2019

  • PEUGEOT supplies KeolisAmey Docklands with a range of light commercial vehicles
  • Vehicles include a range of panel vans and models from the PEUGEOT Built for Business conversions range
  • Vehicles supplied with funding from the Groupe PSA Free2Move Lease business leasing division

KeolisAmey Docklands, a joint venture between Keolis and Amey that holds the franchise to operate and maintain the Docklands Light Railway, has taken delivery of a mixed fleet of 27 PEUGEOT light commercial vehicles to assist with its operations.

The PEUGEOT vehicles include models from the Partner, Expert and Boxer van and crew van ranges, the Traveller Business passenger range and the PEUGEOT Built for Business conversions range. The vehicles will be used for a wide variety of duties, with panel vans equipped by specialist converter Bott to carry the necessary tools and equipment.

“We have worked very closely with PEUGEOT, the supplying Dealer Robins and Day PEUGEOT Maidstone and the converters, to ensure that the vehicles meet our requirements and are as future-proofed as possible for operation within the London Ultra-Low Emissions Zone that comes into force in less than a year”, says Daniel Tweede, Fleet Co-ordinator for KeolisAmey Docklands. “PEUGEOT’s low emission vehicle range and flexible approach were important factors in securing the deal.”

The new PEUGEOT fleet has been funded by Groupe PSA Free2Move Lease. The vehicles have been supplied on a three-year, full maintenance contract hire agreement, which includes a replacement vehicle, where needed, within four hours. The vehicles are expected to cover between 8,000-10,000 miles per year.

“KeolisAmey Docklands needs a wide range of vehicles capable of supporting the varied work their franchise entails”, explains Martin Gurney Groupe PSA UK Fleet Director, “The extensive nature of the PEUGEOT light commercial vehicle range has ensured that we can provide a variety of models and converted vehicles to meet the demands placed on a specialist fleet operating in central London, often in restricted spaces and it is a pleasure to work with Keolis Amey Docklands as a partner in this project.”

The PEUGEOT LCV range includes the Partner light van range, Expert medium van range and Boxer heavy van range, supported by the PEUGEOT Built for Business range of converted vehicles. The all-new Partner was unveiled at the IAA Hanover Commercial Vehicle Show in September and has won the International Van of the Year Award 2019.
