CCIA: essential information

Fleets receive a wealth of additional business benefits when they attend Company Car In Action.

Additional interactive displays and a wide range of exhibitors will provide essential information about how you can run a cheaper, cleaner and safer fleet.

A key area for fleet decision-makers to visit is the Fleet Tax Beaters display.

This is a display of key low CO2-emitting cars in many of the core vehicle segments that fleets operate.

Among the cars on show will be models that qualify for the new 10% ultra-low CO2 benefit-in-kind tax band which was introduced in April.

A second key attraction is a safety focused element to the event.

As fleet decision-makers make their way to the test drive area, they will pass through the Fleet Safety Zone.

This area is dedicated to promoting safety in fleet and is packed with exhibitors who can help your business reduce accident rates and costs.

Risk management is one of the most important concerns for fleet managers.

Fleets are looking for ways to keep their drivers safe on the road and this prominent series of stands and displays aims to capture their attention and offer the essential services they need to consider.

With the new Corporate Manslaughter Act now in force, delegates will have access to expert advice and information on how this might affect them.

They can also gain valuable knowledge about potential suppliers in areas ranging from driver training to licence checking, online assessments and even drug and alcohol testing.

In a new added-value feature at Company Car In Action this year, there will also be a new Commercials in Business section, showing the latest commercial vehicles available to fleet operators.

Finally, Company Car In Action this year will also feature Motorcycles in Business, an area dedicated to two-wheeled fleets.

This area will provide displays of the latest bikes that are suited for fleet use.

In addition to showing the benefits of two-wheeled fleets, it will also show how they can be surprisingly adaptable and can even be engineered to carry ladders.

For full details on the additional exhibits for this year’s Company Car In Action, log on to the dedicated event website, www.companycarinaction.co.uk.

Company Car In Action has teamed up once again with national rental firm 1Car1 as the official provider of courtesy vehicles to the event.

1car1 is the largest independently-owned car and van rental company in the UK, offering a wide range of vehicles from a small economy car to a luxury MPV or 15-seat minibus.

It offers car rental services throughout England, Scotland and Wales with a free meet-and-greet service at all UK airports.

At Company Car In Action, it will be transferring fleet decision-makers from the car park to the exhibition area.
