GEFCO UK has announced a project with long-term partner, London Electric Vehicle Company (LEVC), to provide pre-delivery services for prospective fleet clients.
LEVC, formerly the London Taxi Company, rebranded in July 2017 to reflect its vision to become the leading commercial vehicle provider of choice for cities globally. Its TX electric taxi and recently announced VN5 electric van mark the next evolutionary step for the traditional black cab manufacturer.
GEFCO is supporting LEVC’s ambitions in the electric van market by providing conversions and deliveries to prospective fleet clients from its Corby finished vehicle logistics centre. It will use Moveecar, its recently implemented ‘one stop shop’ digital service platform, to manage the delivery services.
GEFCO has been working with LEVC since 2017, as the distributor of its TX electric models across the UK and Europe.
Victoria Arnold, Sales Director at GEFCO UK, commented: “It has been a pleasure to develop our relationship with LEVC over the years and we’re glad to expand our remit in the EV space, an industry that is set to undergo significant growth in the coming years.
“LEVC is embarking on an exciting new chapter with the launch of its VN5 models, and we are pleased to support its ambitions and explore further areas for collaboration as the project develops.”
Leighton King, Commercial Director at LEVC, commented: “GEFCO has provided invaluable support over the past few years with our ongoing expansion across the UK and overseas. We are now going through a crucial and exciting period with the imminent launch of our VN5 electric van and GEFCO’s experience and technical expertise in the conversion process is set to play an important role.”
