Deutsche Post DHL makes an order of 1,300 Mercedes-Benz Sprinters for parcel delivery

Article by Christian A., on January 1, 2011

Mercedes-Benz Vans will deliver 1,300 Mercedes-Benz Sprinters to Deutsche Post DHL -- its largest order in Germany in 2010. The deliveries started in December 2010 and the last vehicles are set to go into operation in a year’s time.

Deutsche Post was convinced to buy Mercedes-Benz Vans, which offered the most economical solution and the best technology, giving it an edge over the competition.

The handover occurred at one of the Mercedes-Benz dealerships for Cologne and Leverkusen in Frechen. Volker Mornhinweg, Head of Mercedes-Benz Vans, officially handed over the first vehicles to Thomas Zuber, Head of the Letter and DHL Parcel Delivery unit at Deutsche Post DHL.

Mornhinweg said the company is "happy" about the major order and it is also "proud" that an important customer like Deutsche Post DHL uses Mercedes-Benz vehicles.

Mercedes-Benz Vans scored the massive order for parcel delivery vehicles because the Sprinters were able to meet its high technological standards and had satisfied the customer’s special wishes.

In the cabs' design, the engineers focused on enhancing working place ergonomics. This resulted with the Sprinters having raised roofs, which give drivers with more headroom when they stand up. Moreover, the vans have a lower rear entry. The vans also scored high marks for their high durability and low-emission Euro 5-compliant engines.
