Logistics Firms Should Regularly Check the Condition of Their Fleets' Batteries to Avoid Lost Revenue, Says CTEK

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Jan. 21, 2013) - A global battery care and maintenance brand, CTEK, is highlighting the importance for logistics firms to ensure their vehicles' batteries are correctly charged and maintained at all times in order to avoid inconvenient and costly battery related breakdowns.

The batteries of commercial vehicles are often put under excessive strain due to the number of hours they are required to run. One of the most common causes of vehicle breakdown, reported by major recovery services is battery failure, a problem which can often be avoided by following a proper maintenance regime and ensuring that a simple battery check is undertaken on a regular basis.

Battery related breakdowns can be disastrous for businesses relying on transport for commercial gain. Not only can breakdowns lead to a loss of revenue but they can also leave customers unhappy and potentially unwilling to reuse the service in the future; this could, of course, easily affect the long term success of a business.

By using a smart battery charger, which is specifically designed for heavy duty commercial vehicles, such as CTEK's MXT 14, it is possible to easily conduct the necessary battery health checks, whilst also making sure that the battery is at its peak charge. The MXT 14 also boasts RECOND, a feature designed to renew deeply discharged batteries which is a common problem with heavy duty and commercial vehicles.

Jan-Ulf Soderberg, head of brand and marketing at CTEK, said: "With any commercial vehicle a breakdown isn't just an inconvenience, it is a serious problem that can cost the company a lot of money. Therefore, it is extremely important that businesses with commercial fleets ensure vehicles' batteries are kept at the optimum charge level at all times, helping to reduce the amount of battery related breakdowns. With a truck, van or car battery charger it is easy to monitor the health of a battery and recharge as required, and CTEK's products can even be left connected safely for hours, days or weeks. This simple yet important process can save companies money and ensure they retain customers."
