Bansal have updated their fleet with brand-new bespoke sign-written vans from Herd Group, the Mercedes Benz Luton’s have been specially converted to ease the Bansal delivery operation.
Bansal, a specialist provider of leading commercial bathroom and washroom products, were looking for a commercial fleet solution with a totally bespoke cargo area to fulfil safe and cost-effective delivery of their products and opted for a fleet of Benz L3 Progressive RWD with tail lift.
Almost all manufacturers build Luton vans to certain specifications, which is great if you can find one that fits all your needs, however, Bansal wanted a solution to allow safe and secure handling and delivery of challenging and unconventional items.
At Herd Group, we do more – we work with every individual customer to develop a fleet solution suitable for them to drive more business, more profits, more quickly, more easily and more simply. so that our customers can get more done.
Bansal required a solution to deliver often termed ‘ugly freight’, items that are difficult to transport due to their size, shape, and weight.
The requirement was for a higher than standard Luton, with a bigger footprint, thus still allowing for a good payload with metal floor and kick plates to prevent internal vehicle damage.
Adapted with a bespoke size tail lift and more load lok bars, their new fleet solution ensures product fulfilment and logistics, are cost effective along with being health and safety complaint.
Herd Group Area Manager, Mark Scott said, “a big part of my job is to consult with the customer about their individual business needs. Herd is not a one size fits all company, we come up with bespoke solutions whether it’s based on service, financials, safety, spec, environmental – it could be a combination of things.”
“In this case Bansal had just started a new area of their business, which resulted in new demands for their deliveries. The consultation process included multiple key members of their team, including drivers, managers, and directors, which gave me a great understanding of the requirement as well as making sure everyone is happy with the overall result.”
Mukesh Nathwani, Finance and Operations Director said “I was introduced to Mark Scott at Herd Group around 3 years ago and have always found them very flexible to work with. Because of this bespoke vehicle requirement, we needed a trustworthy provider that delivered on their promises and Herd delivered with excellent account management.”
