Van Leasing and Fleet Management Company of the Year
Winner: Hitachi Capital Commercial Vehicle Services
A hotly-contested award in which some of the biggest names in leasing and fleet management went head to head. But for the second year running, none could quite match the range of services and the sheer professionalism offered by Hitachi.
Van Rental Company of the Year
Highly commended: Hiregate
In a sector which has seen the loss of some high profile names in the past year, Europcar was judged to be ahead of the rest in the rental sector. But new name Hiregate impressed the judges too, with its focus on customer service and its old-fashioned approach, giving the personal touch to its dealings.
Van Equipment Supplier of the Year
Winner: ATS Euromaster
There were more entries for this sector than any other, but ATS Euromaster shone out as the best example of a totally van fleet-focused company.
Van Fleet Safety Award
Winner: Kwik-Fit Fleet
The use of winter tyres has been in the spotlight of late, but it was Kwik-Fit Fleet who was in the game first, offering fleet operators an option that can not only help keep vehicles on the roads in winter but can also save lives too. A worthy winner, the judges felt.
