Customer Case Study: Bansal

Published: 3rd November 2023

COMMERCIAL bathroom and washroom specialist Bansal has updated its fleet with new bespoke sign-written vans from Herd Group.

Bansal was looking for a commercial fleet solution with a totally bespoke cargo area to fulfil safe and cost-effective delivery of their products and opted for a fleet of Mercedes-Benz L3 Progressive RWD with tail lift.

Almost all manufacturers build Luton vans to certain specifications, which is great if you can find one that fits all your needs, however, Bansal wanted a solution to allow safe and secure handling and delivery of challenging and unconventional items.
At Herd Group works with every individual customer to develop a fleet solution suitable for them to drive more business, more profits, more quickly, more easily and more simply.

Bansal required a solution to deliver often termed ‘ugly freight’, items that are difficult to transport due to their size, shape, and weight. The requirement was for a higher than standard Luton, with a bigger footprint, thus still allowing for a good payload with metal floor and kick plates to prevent internal vehicle damage.

Adapted with a bespoke size tail lift and more load lok bars, their new fleet solution ensures product fulfilment and logistics, are cost effective along with being health and safety complaint.


Herd Group Area Manager, Mark Scott said,

“a big part of my job is to consult with the customer about their individual business needs. Herd is not a one size fits all company, we come up with bespoke solutions whether it’s based on service, financials, safety, spec, environmental – it could be a combination of things.

In this case Bansal had just started a new area of their business, which resulted in new demands for their deliveries. The consultation process included multiple key members of their team, including drivers, managers, and directors, which gave me a great understanding of the requirement as well as making sure everyone is happy with the overall result.”
