Postal services are facing ever increasing demands for longer and more efficient delivery runs.
The UMV Urban Mail Vehicle offers highly adjustable seating. A seated asymmetrical position for single-house delivery reduces physical strain, whilst a semi-standing centred position suits jumping on and off both sides in urban environments.
The dashboard also raises for improved ergonomics, and offers a time-saving semi-automated feed.
Flexible loading bays allow for dense storage, yet can be adapted daily for different runs, advertisement days, and packages.
The UMV has a 25% smaller footprint than the existing vehicle with the same capacity.
