PARIS, 11-May-2016 — /EuropaWire/ — Under the terms of a sale agreement with ENGIE Cofely, PSA Retail Business Paris made a spectacular delivery of 291 Citroën vehicles on 10 May 2016. The fleet includes C3, Berlingo, Jumpy and Jumper vehicles.
A record-size delivery to a major energy and environmental performance player
The large-scale operation saw all 291 vehicles line up for delivery in a massive building adjacent to the Aulnay delivery centre on 10 May 2016.
The 48 C3, 215 Berlingo, 23 Jumpy and 5 Jumper vehicles all bear the branding of ENGIE Cofely, a major energy and environmental performance player in France and worldwide.
In a tightly managed logistical operation, all vehicles had to be picked up by their users or fleet managers between 6.30am and 2.30pm, making this the largest delivery in a single instalment ever carried out by PSA Business Retail Paris.
A contractual arrangement involving PSA Retail Business Paris and vehicle leasing companies Alphabet and ALD
Citroën won the tender to manufacture the 291 vehicles, while professional leasing companies Alphabet and ALD were contracted for the financial side of the deal. Alphabet arranged long-term lease financing for the Berlingo and Jumpy vehicles and ALD set up the finance scheme for the C3 and Jumper vehicles.
A choice underpinned by environmental performance
ENGIE Cofely, a leading energy and environmental performance company, naturally attaches great importance to the energy efficiency and environmental footprint of its fleet. The eco-performance of the four models was a key factor in ENGIE Cofely’s choice of providers for this contract.
Joël Verany, Director of PSA Retail Business Paris said: “It is a great honour for PSA Retail Business Paris to carry out such a large-scale delivery. We recently consolidated all our B2B skills in the Paris region and this contract symbolises our expertise and know-how in bidding for major contracts.”
