April 29, 2021 // Franchising.com // POLAND - Zabka continues its effective cooperation with Volkswagen Samochody Dostawcze brand in the electromobility domain. New vehicles have been supplied to the Zabka fleet, namely four electric Volkswagen Transporter ABT vans to be used by the Intervention Service Group, which handles defects in stores on daily basis. This is the first vehicle of this type with specialist service bodywork in Europe.
- Investments in environment-friendly, zero-emission transport in cities translate into improved living comfort of their residents; this is why we rely on development of Smart City logistics. Most of our facilities are placed in the most attractive city locations, with heavy traffic intensity, frequently in the strict city centers. Assurance of a proper supply chain for such locations requires of us the right approach to store planning and support, with reduction of emissions of harmful substances and noise levels in mind. We have just invested in four zero-emission service vehicles of Volkswagen brand. We keep on following closely the motoring market in search for zero-emission vehicles powered by alternative fuels that optimally meet our needs. This concerns also trucks and passenger cars for the field staff - says Adam Manikowski, Managing Director at Zabka Polska.
The Zabka fleet has just received four electric Volkswagen Transporter ABT vans. Those are Europe’s first delivery vans with specialist service bodywork. The vehicles have been properly customized for use by the Zabka Intervention Service Groups concerned with express repairs and maintenance of the equipment placed in Zabka stores in four Polish cities: Pozna?, Warsaw, ?ód? and Kraków. Zabka guarantees to its franchisees free maintenance services as part of the franchise cooperation. Professionals remove defects related to adaptation, refrigeration, catering, but also problems concerning visualisation and fittings.
- We continue to develop our successful cooperation with Zabka Polska - says Piotr ?akomy, Volkswagen Samochody Dostawcze Brand Director. - Zabka chain is our long-standing, strong fleet client. Working together, we rely on electromobility, environment-friendly solutions and we lean towards constant improvements of the urban tissue - creation of the so-called Smart City and care for improvement of residents’ living quality through reduction of noise and exhaust emissions. Under this cooperation, for many years we have been providing Zabka chain with fleet vehicles, and last year we delivered two modern electric Volkswagen e-Crafter vans; now the company fleet has been expanded with four electric Transporter vans. This is how we meet the expectations of our client, jointly stressing the enormous importance of zero-emission solutions for the future of our cities. As a brand we not only want to deliver electric delivery vehicles, but also contribute to creation of a modern city logistics, promote alternative energy sources, dispel myths and overcome barriers. We want to pursue a dialogue with clients and approach them with state-of-the-art transport solutions.
Electric vehicles of Volkswagen Samochody Dostawcze brand help in daily effective functioning of the stores of Zabka chain. Operating electric Volkswagen Transporter ABT vans in a big city center affords the possibility to take advantage of all facilitations created by local governments for electric vehicles. They may freely move along the so-called bus passes, thus evading traffic jams, and park in free urban parking zones, which improves effectiveness of logistics and the speed of reaching the stores. Both Volkswagen Samochody Dostawcze and Zabka chain make sure modern means of transport are as ecological as possible. Electric Volkswagen Transporter ABT van selected by Zabka chain is a zero-emission vehicle; it does not pollute the air with exhaust gases, and it does not generate noise on top of that. This contributes directly to improvement of the living conditions of city residents, improves drivers’ work comfort and provides franchisees of Zabka with top service quality.
Zabka Polska and Volkswagen Samochody Dostawcze are partners in the project. The vehicles have been delivered by the Authorized Dealer of Volkswagen Samochody Dostawcze - Porsche Kra?cowa (Porsche Inter Auto Polska Sp. z o.o.), which is also responsible for provision of maintenance services for the vehicles.
