Volkswagen to supply Siemens fleet

Siemens has again contracted Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles to renew its fleet.

As part of the deal, 20 Transporters will join Siemens’ wind turbine engineering support team.

With sustainability at the heart of all its business operations, Siemens was won over by the increased fuel-efficiency offered by the Transporter’s BlueMotion Technology, while Volkswagen’s 4MOTION four-wheel drive system will also offer the Siemens engineers greater mobility over difficult terrain.

Paul Tate, commodity manager at Siemens, said, ‘The Volkswagen Transporter offers a van that can not only match our very strict environmental standards, but also delivers the performance and payload capabilities that we require to operate our business effectively and efficiently.

‘Working in locations that are often not accessible by road, our engineers require a van that can be relied on day-in-day-out to get them and their equipment to site without any issues.

‘Volkswagen’s 4MOTION four-wheel drive system will work well on the kind of terrain that our engineering teams experience on a daily basis.’
