White Van Men On The Rise

New figures from the RAC Foundation show that number of light vans on the road such as the DFSK minivan sold by Ryan Vehicles has increased by 29% to 3.3 million. During the same period the increase in cars was at 11%. This means that 1 in 10 vehicles on the road is a light commercial vehicle.

In contract to these figures, the number of heavy commercial vehicles fell by 5%, meaning more and more business are reducing the number of heavy vehicles they offer in favour of smaller and more economical vans that are better around towns and cities.

The Government estimates that future growth in the van market is to continue to rise, as a result of the growth in online sales mean consumers require more home deliveries.

RAC Foundation director Professor Stephen Glaister said: “The stereotypical white van man comes in for a lot of bad press but the rapidly-rising number of light commercial vehicles on our roads suggests a growing army of hard-working sole traders, deliverymen and small businesses on whom the economy depends.”
