FTA Head of Vans Mark Cartwright commented:

“The FTA Van Driver of the Year event really is testimony to the skills and expertise of the competing drivers. They’re all employed by Van Excellence accredited operators who are working at the very highest standards, and those who take part really are the best of the best – from the best operators.”

Mark Lovett, Head of Commercial Vehicles at contest sponsor LeasePlan UK, also commented:

“Our van fleet customers tell us that duty of care is of paramount importance to them and so it’s great to be able to recognise and reward the businesses that take their van fleet operations seriously. In addition, the awards dispel the myth of ‘white van man’ being discourteous, dangerous and unprofessional. On the contrary, it’s evident that there are an increasingly large number of organisations in the UK that follow FTA’s Van Excellence guidelines and operate a safe, efficient and legally compliant van fleet.”

Thinking of a new or used van? Fiat Commercial vehicles appear consistently as major contenders in many award categories – Ricky McFarland, Country Manager FIAT Professional UK, comments:

“We are delighted that our tireless efforts to continuously improve the support and service we provide to our fleet customers hasn’t gone unnoticed by the Commercial Fleet judges. This hard work, combined with our ever-improving model range, was key to retaining the prestigious title of Commercial Fleet “Van Fleet Manufacturer of the Year” for the second consecutive year, as well as scooping three other important awards and a commendation from the judges. With three new models due in 2016, we are already working on building on this success for next year!”
