Van Excellence Operational Briefings

01 March 2017 Harrogate, Twickenham Stadium, Villa Park

The briefings, which are sponsored by Mercedes-Benz Vans, take place on:

  • 1st March – Aston Villa, Birmingham
  • 23rd March – Twickenham Stadium
  • 29th March – The Pavillions, Harrogate

 They are designed to assist any van operator, from large fleets to those with just one vehicle, whether they are an FTA member or not. Delegates attending last year gave the briefings a 93% approval rating.

Van Excellence is an industry-led initiative which aims to enhance standards of van operator compliance, celebrate operators who demonstrate excellence and represent the interests of the van industry. The scheme was launched in 2010 and recently won a Prince Michael of Kent International Road Safety Award.
