Van-tastic Four for Movianto!
Movianto recently welcomed four ‘smart’ brand-new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 314 L3 H2 vehicles to their fleet supplied by MBNI Truck & Van. Movianto, an Owens and Minor company specialise in the transportation and delivery of pharmaceutical drugs to chemists, hospitals and more recently home patients. With patient care at the core of their business, it’s vital that the drugs are transported at the required temperature to ensure the drugs work in their intended way.
“Every item that we deliver has a temperature perimeter that has to be maintained i.e. chill has to be maintained between 2-8 degrees and ambient at 15-25”.
“Movianto have always used Mercedes-Benz vehicles”, says Martin Kennedy who has worked at the company for 9 years. He can’t recall a time when the company didn’t use Mercedes-Benz vans, “The reliability and life span of the vehicle is really important to ourselves. We cover the whole of Northern Ireland’s hospitals and pharmacies with deliveries on a daily basis, and as you can imagine can run up a lot of miles therefore reliability is very high on our list of requirements”.
Innovative Heating & Cooling Technology.
The significance of these four brand new Sprinter vans is the brand new GAH Flexi-temp technology introduced to help increase efficiency.
Flexi-temp which was installed by Fleet Maintenance enables Movianto to heat & cool their products which are stored in two separate compartments simultaneously. The Sprinters were also equipped with a battery driven fridge unit as an emergency back-up from Mercedes-Benz.
The simultaneous heating of both ambient & chilled compartments saves Movianto precious time compared to earlier vehicles which took much longer to satisfy the heating requirements. “The vehicles have been remarkable to say the least and we hope to be using them on any future vehicles we purchase”.
As well as an innovative, forward thinking solution to Movianto’s Heat Cool system their new Sprinter vehicles also come with Mercedes-Benz PRO Connect, a free* telematics solution which allows fleet managers to manage vehicles, prepare workshop visits and check on vehicle status in real-time helping to avoid downtime and keep their vans moving. As with all New Model Sprinters they will also benefit from the Brand new 7” MBUX multi-media touch-screen interface which comes equipped with Apple Car play & Android Auto.
“I am really impressed with the 4 new vans we purchased from Paul McClurkin at MBNI Truck & Van. look forward to doing more business with MBNI this business year”
