Last chance to enter for Fleet Van Awards 2012

Now in their fifth year, the Fleet Van Awards are the benchmark awards for the light commercial vehicle industry, with trophies for manufacturers, fleet operators and suppliers.

The fleet awards focus on safety, awarding trophies to those van operators that display an obsession for keeping their drivers safe and their vehicles accident-free.

The van categories compare vehicles across a number of core fleet criteria, including payload, safety,  technology, running costs, fuel efficiency/CO2 emissions, reliability, aftersales service and back-up offered by the dealer network.

They also include the driver appeal in terms of comfort and performance.

The four supplier categories are open to all companies supplying products and services to van fleets: they reward great service and innovation.

The deadline for entries has been extended to the 8th of October - for an entry form or more information contact Kate Howard at kate.howard@bauermedia.co.uk or on 01733 468416.
