Volkswagen Australia dealerships have welcomed the all-new Volkswagen Crafter and the model looks likely to make its presence felt.
Boasting an additional 500kg maximum payload (now up to 5.5 tonnes), Volkswagen believes the new Crafter will put some pressure on the Australian light-duty truck market.
Available in both cab chassis and double cab chassis, as well as van, the Crafter also welcomes an automatic transmission for the first time.
The eight-speed auto sits along side the six-speed manual, while front-wheel drive (with 100mm lower floor), all-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive all feature.
In total there are 59 different variants of the new-gen Volkswagen Crafter are being offered in Australia.
The launch of the new Crafter comes at a good time for Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, global and local sales are on the up and local LCV and light-duty truck sales numbers are also booming.
We caught up with Volkswagen Commercial Vehicle Marketing Manager, Nick Reid, at the launch to talk about all that's happening with the division in 2018...

It's one thing to be a regular transport-based business that only concentrates on getting a product from warehouse to store.
But imagine if you added in the complication of also having to collect the product first, and from multiple locations.

Oh...and add in the stress of dealing with perishable food as well!

SecondBite is a food charity that "exists to provide access to fresh, nutritious food for people in need across Australia".

The team at SecondBite recently added Verizon Connect into their vehicles and we thought it would be interesting to find out more about the operation and how they run their fleet.

I caught up with Daniel Arklay, National Operations and Logistics Manager at SecondBite for a chat...
