UPC, Ireland’s leading TV, phone and broadband service provider, has expanded its fleet of Ford Transit Custom models, which the company uses to provide its range of services to private and business customers nationwide.
According to Eugene Lattin, UPC’s Head of Procurement and Fleet: “With the evolution of our business over the last number of years, our fleet has moved from being predominantly based on the smaller Transit Connect to the larger Transit Custom. With the expanded range of product and services that we provide to households and businesses across Ireland, our Network Engineers need more space and functionality from their vans and the Transit Custom ticks all the boxes. In addition, our teams love the Transit for its great driving ability which is very important when you see the mileage that they clock up”.
UPC provides a full suite of cable TV, telephony and broadband services to both residential and business customers right across the country. The company’s team of Network Engineers who use the Transits in their everyday work, spend a lot of time on the road as they travel to and from customers’ homes and offices, ensuring the network and service quality is maintained at the highest levels.
Each Transit Custom is fitted out with a specially designed shelving system and custom built roof rack. The system was designed around holding a wide range of consumable stock used by the network engineers while carrying out their everyday work and to minimise any risk involved while staff access the kit in their vans.
“The Transit Custom’s practicality is a hugely important factor in our choosing the vehicle but equally, I have to look after the euros and the cents and the Transit scores very well here too as the vehicle has the lowest overall running costs of any vehicle in its class”, concluded Mr. Lattin.
