A special vehicle request was placed by a large Las Vegas resort through Columbia's dealer Southwest Material Handling to assist with Room Service Deliveries. The resort was looking for a vehicle to travel underground between their main kitchen and several food stations. They required that the vehicle travel a maximum of 7 mph and had the capabilities to carry several trays of food and beverages between the locations.
Columbia used the Utlitruck platform and built a vehicle to the resorts specifications. They built a custom box for each cart with shelves that allowed for the loading and unloading of food and beverage trays. Columbia also slowed the vehicle down to meet the specifications of the customer. This special vehicle was another success story for Columbia due to the fact that they were the only manufacturer able to provide a solution for such a unique request.
