The new vehicles are based on the Movano chassis but offer what bodybuilder Maxi-Low describes as an ultra-high capacity, compared to the standard 3.5-tonne panel van.
Internal load length is 4,200mm while load height is 1,951mm, and Maxi-Low says the lightweight, aerodynamic body will also deliver improved fuel economy for Breezemount.
“We are always looking at creative solutions to help manage and reduce our operating and whole life costs,” comments Graham Brooks, head of fleet at Breezemount UK.
“The new MaxiQube vehicles ... offer greater volume and payload than our previous 3.5 tonne van fleet and these efficiencies support Breezemount UK’s strategy to lower CO2 emissions and reduce our carbon footprint.”
And he adds that TOM was “commercially aware” and worked consultatively with the company to get the specification right for its needs.
That’s not just about Breezemount getting a fixed cost, risk-managed fleet solution, but also highly specified vehicles with features including lightweight rear container-style barn doors, LED rear lights and reversing camera with integrated rear light to reduce collision and damage incidents.
The new vans also have recessed D –load rings for securing loads, as well as a mix of single and dual passenger seats to suit Breezemount’s regional operations.
The new damage and collision mitigation features will now run parallel with Breezemount’s existing fleet system, which has video event recorders supplied by Lytx through the DriveCam Programme.
Brooks says Breezemount will use this to improve driver behaviour, while also developing and improving driver standards in terms of safety and professionalism.
