THE success of a fleet quality and operations programme is growing, thanks to Countrywide Farmers.
The Freight Transport Association’s Van Excellence scheme has reached its century and Countrywide Farmers are its 100th participant.
Since FTA launched the Van Excellence scheme in 2010 it has accredited a wide variety of van fleet operators including BT Fleet, Balfour Beatty, British Gas, Sainsbury’s, West Midlands Ambulance Service and Network Rail.

Darren Moor, Operations and Compliance Manager at Countrywide Farmers said, “The accreditation demonstrates to our business, suppliers and customers that we are committed to delivering a first class service across out transport operations and is a reflection of our Customer Service Standard throughout our business.”
Mark Cartwright, FTA’s Head of Vans, congratulated Countrywide Farmers on becoming an accredited member of the Van Excellence scheme, “ The scheme is here to stay as the most complete and robust measure of a van operator’s attitude towards compliant, safe and efficient running of their fleet.
“There is a lot more work to be done across the sector but this landmark serves to prove that very many van operators take their corporate responsibilities very seriously and Countrywide Farmers are a perfect demonstration of this.”
Van Excellence was created in order to promote high standards of van operation and driving by accrediting operators against an industry code of good practice.
Van Excellence is supported by its Industry Partners: ATS Euromaster, BT Fleet, Hertz Van Rental, Lex Autolease and TomTom Telematics.
