Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Voted Van of the Year
The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter has been voted ‘Van of the Year’ at the annual Export
& Freight Transport & Logistics Awards.
The company picked up the award, sponsored by Bridgestone, for its Sprinter 314 LWB
model at a glittering ceremony at the Waterfront Hall in Belfast, beating off
stiff competition from four other leading manufacturers.
With a host of innovative safety features ranging from Crosswind and Collision Prevention
Assist to Blind Spot and Lane Keeping Assist, as well as excellent all-round
visibility afforded by its driving position and large windows, the
Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is already a proven workhorse on our roads.
It is the van that is relied on in all of the UK’s 14 ambulance trusts and many of
the country’s food distributors and top parcel courier companies.
Sprinter BlueEFFICIENCY models are amongst the most sustainable vehicles in their class
and include ECO start/stop function, ECO power steering pump, shift point
recommendation, intelligent fuel pump, low rolling resistance tyres and
BlueEFFICIENCY Package Plus builds on this further still by ensuring a further reduction in
fuel consumption for vehicles which generally operate at motorway speeds and
includes an electric extractor fan and longer rear axle ratio.
With 20 separate categories, the annual Transport & Logistics awards, organised
by the Hillsborough based publishers of Export & Freight magazine, 4SM (NI)
Ltd., is widely regarded as the premier event in the Irish Transport &
Logistics calendar, attracting entries, support and sponsorship from all the
leading players in the industry.
