Peugeot selected to supply KeolisAmey Docklands LCV fleet

KeolisAmey Docklands, a joint venture between public transport specialists Keolis and infrastructure support service Amey that holds the franchise to operate and maintain the Docklands Light Railway, has taken delivery of a mixed fleet of 27 Peugeot LCVs to assist with its operations.

The Peugeot vehicles include models from the Partner, Expert and Boxer van and crew van ranges, the Traveller Business passenger range and the Peugeot Built for Business conversions range. The vehicles will be used for a wide variety of duties, with panel vans equipped by specialist converter Bott to carry the necessary tools and equipment.

“We have worked very closely with Peugeot to ensure that the vehicles meet our requirements and are as future-proofed as possible for operation within the London Ultra-Low Emissions Zone that comes into force in less than a year”, says Daniel Tweede, fleet co-ordinator for KeolisAmey Docklands.

“Peugeot’s low emission vehicle range and flexible approach were important factors in securing the deal,” he adds.

“KeolisAmey Docklands needs a wide range of vehicles capable of supporting the varied work their franchise entails”, explains Martin Gurney Groupe PSA UK fleet director, “The extensive nature of the Peugeot light commercial vehicle range has ensured that we can provide a variety of models and converted vehicles to meet the demands placed on a specialist fleet operating in central London, often in restricted spaces and it is a pleasure to work with Keolis Amey Docklands as a partner in this project.”
