UMV Mail Vehicle / Urban Mail Delivery Vehicle

UMV Mail Vehicle
UMV Mail Vehicle

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.
