FTA’s Van Excellence Awards recognises operators and drivers

8 February 2019

The UK’s finest van operators and drivers have been recognised as the ‘best of the best’ at the FTA’s 2018 Van Excellence Honours.

The awards, also sponsored by AA, Bott, Brigade Electronics, Hertz, Lex Autolease and Quartix, recognise and reward the van operators and drivers who have made a significant contribution to the van industry.

Mark Cartwright, head of vans and light commercial vehicles at the Freight Transport Association (FTA), which administers the Van Excellence scheme, said: “With more than 4.3 million vans on Britain’s roads, and the numbers increasing every year, it is important to recognise and reward the operators and drivers leading the way in excellence.

“All the winners, and highly commended entrants, place safety and compliance at the heart of their operations; they set a high standard for others to follow and can now take their place as the ‘best of best’ in the business.

“There is so much more to van operation than simply vehicle maintenance – community spirit, commitment to employee welfare and technological innovation are all integral parts of their roles. 

“Van operators and drivers play an essential, and highly versatile, role in the UK economy, and it is high time their contributions are acknowledged.”
