VT Hackney, Inc. announced that Hackney has launched a new vending body targeting the micro market and prekit vending markets. The Express features all side access utilizing Hackney’s aluminum roll up door design and locking system. Offered in two standard body lengths, ranging from 4 bay to 6 bay configurations, the Express also features adjustable horizontal shelving allowing the customer to modify the bays to meet various tote sizes and drink capacities.
Advancements in software solutions and the addition of micro-market services have allowed vending companies to evolve new growth models, but little attention has been paid to the equipment used to distribute the product, according to the release. The Express was thus specially designed to allow operators to maximize their investment and improve the efficiency of their route drivers. Depending on the tote size, the Express can carry up to 40 totes and 80 cases of 20 ounce bottles in its smallest body size. Larger body sizes accommodates routes with above average stops or heavy drink routes, while also allowing room for coolers.
The company said in a prepared statement, “The Express is designed around increasing route driver efficiency. It capitalizes on technology to reap benefits such as more stops, reduced routes, fuel savings and potentially fewer vehicles.”
