Delivery Assist

This feature is probably one of my favourites. It is, in fact, such a simple idea, but yet so ingenious that I’ve not seen it before.

Power Side Load Doors

This feature comes in particularly handy by reducing operator fatigue. Taking the strain out of loading and unloading by allowing the cargo door to open and close automatically.

An important point to emphasise is that the Ford Transit Custom reduces operator’s fatigue through various aspects of its design, and  not solely on features like the sliding doors. Find out more by clicking on the link!
