Nominations open for FTA's Van Excellence Awards


The Van Excellence scheme, ran by the FTA, will be holding a new awards lunch in Birmingham on 7 February.

The Van Excellence Honours Lunch, sponsored by Mercedes-Benz Vans,  will recognise and reward the van operators who have made a significant contribution to the van industry. The nominations are now open and close on 25 January 2019.
Mark Cartwright, Head of Vans and Light Commercial Vehicles at the Freight Transport Association, commented: “The Van Excellence Honours Lunch will celebrate the ‘best of the best’ in the van industry; the businesses and individuals that consistently place safety and compliance at the heart of their operations and are at the heart of so many businesses across the country, and internationally. With the van industry growing so fast, it is important to recognise and reward the operators leading the way in excellence and setting a high standard for others to follow.
“Whether operating a large fleet or a single vehicle, all van operators committed to quality and excellence should enter these awards or nominate an esteemed peer. It’s time van operators are acknowledged for the essential, and highly versatile, role they play to the UK economy.”
With the exception of the 'Van Hero of the Year' award, which is open to all, the following categories are open to Van Excellence Accredited Operators only: Making a Difference; Putting Drivers First; Helping the Community; Using Technology for Good; Keeping your Show on the Road; and Winning at Wellbeing.

The awards take place at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Birmingham on 7 February 2019.
