Fleet News! Transit Orders Coming In

By -

It’s going to debut as the replacement for the E-series vans for fleet customers who need work vans for their business. Now that the Transit is out; who was the first major fleet purchaser for the new utility vans? Well, it’s none other than Charter Communications.

Being the fourth-largest cable operator in the U.S., Charter Communications needs a fleet of reliable and fuel efficient vans that can meet their needs.

“Charter Communications’ choice of the low-roof-model Ford Transit allows its installers the ability to maneuver in tight parking spaces and garages, while offering almost 56 inches of cargo height with rear cargo doors that open up to 180 degrees for easy loading and unloading,” said Kevin Koswick, director, Ford North American Fleet, Lease and Remarketing Operations.

Charter made an order for more than 800 of the low-roof, standard wheelbase transits for use in its 29 state region. There is also another advantage to buying the Transit van other than the fuel mileage, options, and capability. The Transit is built near Kansas City, Missouri which is also home to Charter’s equipment installer, Auto Truck.
