UK Van Shortage

Posted On: 6 July 2022

It all comes down to semi-conductors then, without them, manufacturing a modern new van becomes an impossible feat. With a surge in demand for new vans coupled with various semi-conductor or “chip” manufacturers closing during the pandemic, numerous van brands were forced to halt vehicle production due to the supply shortfall. With the typical fleet replacement disturbed, leads time have increased for commercial vehicle fleets. Allroad are working hard to source vehicles to keep our customers on the road. We see light at the end of the tunnel with signs that availability of vehicles will improve before the end of the year. To this extent we are resorting to acquiring a few low milage used vehicles to satisfy our customers needs and with a bit of luck we’ll have the vehicle you require to the standard you expect.
