The Couriering Autolympics

atuo

The sun finally set on the RIO 2016 Olympic Games and following team GB’s successes it has ended on an exceptional high. However, the Olympic buzz hasn’t waned here at Speed Couriers. We consider the positions of courier vans in a motoring version of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

LWB Vans

Sport:

Track and Field.

 

one

Long wheel-based vans have the strength to carry heavier loads such as furniture whilst being nimble and agile. Their varied abilities can take on a range of delivery requests likewise to a track and field athletes participating in multi-events.

 

ELWB Vans (AKA Sprinters)

Sport:

Canoeing.

two

The Sprinter can take two forms, one of which has a 144-inch base whereas the alternative has a 170-inch base. Dependent on the cargo it is transporting, standard or tall roof options are available. The sprinter falls into the canoeing category for its capability to handle large cargo whilst by offering strong towing capacity. This vehicle boasts the power and the sprightliness to carry weight but go the distance no matter what is throw in its way. Which is similar to the contrast between canoeing on flat-water versus white-water.

 

Box Vans

Sport:

Synchronised Swimming.

three

Yes, I know what you’re thinking. How can you begin to compare a box van with elegant synchronised swimmers? Box vans are all about clean lines and making the most of their space. Analogous to every swimmer harmonising in a routine, each parcel will have its own place in the box vans symmetrical form.

 

HGV (Heavy Goods Vehicle) Trucks – 7.5 & 17 Ton.

Sport:

Weightlifting (+105 KG)

four

This comparison was a no brainer. The combined characteristics of loading space and size allow the HGV to showcase its potential to hold weights that greatly surpass the likes of the combi vans. Weight lifters often seem to possess super-human strength and the same can be said for the HGV in comparison to its smaller counterparts.
