A national company has demonstrated its commitment to protecting the environment after purchasing a fleet of eco-friendly models from Jennings Ford in Sunderland.

When Crossroads Truck and Bus Limited needed to purchase a batch of reliable, economical and ecological fleet cars for their depot network throughout Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Humberside, the greener, eco-friendly option was a must.

And according to staff at Jennings’ Business Centre based on Riverside Road, more customers are considering the greener, eco-friendly models when it comes to fleet vehicles.

The company, which operates out of nine locations across Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Humberside, has just taken delivery of 26 Ford Fiesta ECOnetic models supplied by Jennings Ford’s Business Centre.

Following rigorous pre-delivery inspections being carried out, all 26 models were then loaded onto a number of transporters and headed down to Crossroads Truck and Bus Limited’s depot in York.

Ray Cardwell, business centre manager at Jennings Ford in Sunderland, said; “The new ECOnetic model range not only gives customers a clearer conscience about the impact they are having on the environment, but it also is an excellent way in which companies can make savings.”

Ray added; “When Crossroads Truck and Bus contacted us about supplying a number of fleet vehicles, they were fully aware of the EConetic range of ultra low CO2 models currently available through Ford.”

Ford launched its first ECOnetic 1.6-litre TDCi in 2007, which was followed by the Mondeo 1.8 TDCi model. The end of 2008, the new ECOnetic Fiesta Verve 1.6 TDCi, which is currently exempt from road tax, became available to customers.

Over the past two decades Jennings Ford’s Business Centre has been forging good working relationships with hundreds of companies on both a local and national level.

Officially launched in 1996, the JenningsFord Business Centre was set up by Ford with the objective to further increase fleet business and offer packages to meet individual needs and demands within the business community.

Since that time, business has gone from strength to strength with Jennings Ford now supplying fleet vehicles to a wide and ever increasing portfolio of local and national businesses.
