New industry partners for Van Excellence

Hertz, ATS Euromaster and Route Monkey have become industry partners of the Freight Transport Association (FTA)’s Van Excellence scheme.

Van Excellence was launched in 2010 to promote high standards of van operation and driving by accrediting operators against an industry code of good practice (known as the Van Excellence Code).

The industry partners will help promote the Van Excellence Code among their customers and encourage its standards to be adopted and followed throughout the light commercial vehicle sector.

In addition to supporting Van Excellence, the industry partners will be working with the FTA on a number of initiatives during 2013, including a Van Excellence supplement, developing best practice guides, and three new conferences throughout the UK.

Mark Cartwright, head of vans and light commercial vehicles at the FTA, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Hertz, ATS Euromaster and Route Monkey as the first Van Excellence industry partners. Their support of the scheme is invaluable and is the perfect start to 2013 for Van Excellence which continues to go from strength to strength with the growth being indicative of how important it has now become within the logistics industry.”
