As the UK Government eases the lockdown, Fleet News pays tribute to the fleets and key workers who stepped up during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic to help save lives and keep the country running.

These progressive essential services companies have implemented new processes at very short notice and are keen to share their learnings with other business. Over the next five days, we bring their stories to life and speak to some of the drivers on the frontline about their experiences and how they are embracing a new way of working.

The Government’s list of essential workers in the Covid-19 pandemic reads like a Who’s Who in fleet. Police, fire and ambulance services? Tick. Postal services? Tick. Delivery companies? Tick. Telecommunications? Tick. Utilities? Tick. Local authorities? Tick.
