Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles are highlighting the essential role of vans within business development.

Volkswagen CV, alongside the Centre for Economic and Business Research (CEBR), have conducted a critical overview into the nature of new and small businesses in the UK, focussing on the role of vans within operations and growth.

Van dependent businesses have contributed £120 billion to the UK economy, with the reliability and proactivity of these vans being essential to effective day-to-day processes.

Self-employment, since 2009, have been on a steady rise with a 17.5% overall increase. This is coupled with a 400% growth of registered commercial vehicles, demonstrating how flexibility and hot-desking is often crucial to early movements. With this in mind, Volkswagen CV teamed up with Startup Direct to create sixth-generation Transporters which could double as office spaces; whiteboards, beanbags, high-roofs and desks can be incorporated in the back of a van to offer the ultimate dynamic working environment.

Having spent 65 years on the market, the Volkswagen Transporter remains the cornerstone of commercial vehicles. The latest model, launched in September, continues to bring success to many businesses who require practicality without compromise.
