Fleet News Reader Recommended 2022 logo

Over the past turbulent 18 months, supplier relationships have been tested like never before.

COVID-19, lockdowns, supply chain issues, environmental challenges, changing driver demands and ongoing post Brexit uncertainty have added complexity to the job of a fleet operator.

It’s, therefore, a perfect time for Fleet News to reintroduce the Reader Recommended programme, giving fleet decision-makers an opportunity to praise the work and support they have received from key partners by nominating them as a recommended company.

Alphabet, ARI Fleet, BP Fuel Cards, Civica, DriveTech, FleetCheck, Geotab, Jaama, Keyfuels, LeasePlan, Northgate, TrakM8, UK Fuels and Zenith here let you into their world to discover the ways they have supported their fleet customers.
