Spartan Fleet Vehicles and Services, a business unit of Spartan Motors Inc (NASDAQ: SPAR) which encompasses the Utilimaster and Spartan Upfit Services brands, demonstrated the benefits of its refrigerated Ford Transit Cargo Van at the 2019 MY Ford Fleet Preview at the Marriott Marquis in Washington DC recently.

Participants witnessed an advanced temperature-controlled cargo van conversion, in the summer heat at FedEx Field, home of the Washington Redskins.

“We’re committed to understanding our customer’s unique needs and delivery challenges. Showcasing industry-leading refrigeration technology demonstrates our ability to apply the latest technical advancements with our unique understanding of last-mile delivery optimization,” said Chad Heminover, president, Spartan Fleet Vehicles and Services.

“It’s a multi-temperature solution that requires no additional fuel source, so it can serve a wide variety of categories—from food and grocery to time- and temperature-sensitive healthcare deliveries,” he said.

The refrigerated Ford Transit 250 Cargo Van, upfitted in conjunction with Delivery Concepts Inc, optimally preserves cold cargo quality while offering customizations such as removable bulkheads and optional thermal curtains. Utilimaster’s Work-Driven Design process provides best-in-class conversion solutions in walk-in vans, truck bodies and cargo van vehicles.

“Our Work-Driven Design process was developed to uncover specific customer needs and business challenges, then blend a best practices approach as to how to solve them. I’m proud that we were able to showcase this impressive unit at the Ford Fleet Preview,” said Heminover.

The 2019 MY Ford Fleet Preview is an annual event for Ford partners and dealers to showcase the latest fleet technologies and vehicles in their network. The three-day event welcomed 600 of the nation’s largest fleet customers.
