ADT Security Expects $5.3M Savings in Fuel Costs
DEARBORN, MI - ADT Security Services recently purchased 1,500 Ford Transit Connects and intends to double that number within the next six months, saving some $5.3 million annually in fuel costs while reducing carbon emissions.
With plans to order a total of 3,000 Transit Connects, ADT, a Tyco International company, will replace nearly half of its North American fleet with Ford's new compact van.
The Transit Connects will be driven by thousands of ADT technicians who install and service security systems for millions of residential customers throughout North America.
ADT tested the Transit Connect in a pilot program with its technicians and found it to be the right vehicle for the job.
"The Transit Connect seems to work well for ADT residential and small business installers and service technicians - especially those in congested, urban areas," said David Wade, ADT Supply Chain and Fleet Group director. "It is much easier to maneuver and park than a larger commercial van, and it offers ample cargo-carrying capacity for supplying our residential and small business customers."
