VAN Excellence, the Freight Transport Association-backed initiative to enhance standards for business vans users, has two new supporters.
BT Fleet and TomTom Business Solutions have lined up with Hertz, ATS Euromaster and Route Monkey as industry partners of the scheme, which was launched in 2010 to promote high standards of van operation and driving.
Van Excellence is open to businesses of all sizes using vans and pick-ups of up to 3.5 tonnes. The aim is to increase safety for drivers and other road users, and to provide peace of mind in the legal compliance of your van or fleet.
Industry partners help promote and endorse the Van Excellence Code among their customers and encourage its standards to be adopted throughout the light commercial vehicle sector.
The FTA’s head of vans and light commercials, Mark Cartwright, told Business Vans: “Industry partnership of Van Excellence is the perfect opportunity for two such highly respected organisations as BT Fleet and TomTom Business Solutions to become involved in the scheme.”
BT Fleet managing director Dave Bowen said: “BT Fleet is delighted to become a Van Excellence industry partner and help raise awareness of the programme’s benefits. Having managed complex van fleets for over 50 years, we are perfectly placed to help van fleet operators with their day-to-day challenges, driver safety, operator compliance and peace of mind.”
