UPS to upgrade to Mercedes-Benz Sprinter delivery vans

UPS will soon be adding the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter to its fleet of delivery vans, an upgrade from the recently discontinued Mercedes-Benz Vario line of heavy commercial vans.

It’s easy to see how having the headquarters of one of the world’s top luxury car manufacturers would be beneficial to any location, which is why it’s not all that surprising to hear that New Jersey officials are campaigning to keep Mercedes-Benz within the state borders.

While there’s been no word of any possible move yet, and Mercedes-Benz officials have declined to comment on the matter,  state officials like Assemblywoman Holly Schepisi are keen on Mercedes-Benz… Continue Reading »
