Jaama has become one of the first organisation’s to partner the Freight Transport Association’s Van Excellence scheme.
Van Excellence is an industry-led initiative to raise standards and improve the image of the UK’s growing van sector and includes a tough accreditation system and a strict code of practice, and is backed by many household names.
In the 18 months since the scheme launched, 27 fleets have achieved accreditation to the Van Excellence Code, with a further 80 having expressed interest or undergoing accreditation. The total number of vans operated by those organisations is 137,500.
There are, to date, 14 organisations that have joined the Van Excellence programme as partners and are suppliers to van fleets. Partners promote the Code of Van Excellence amongst their customers and encourage its standards to be adopted and followed throughout the light commercial vehicle sector.
Among Jaama customers that have achieved Van Excellence as determined by the ‘Van Excellence Code’ are: Amey, DHL International (UK), Enterprise Managed Services, Norse Commercial Services and South Central Ambulance Trust.
Martin Evans, Jaama’s sales and operations director, said: “Technology is a major aid to making fleet administration easier for fleet managers and ensuring vehicles are operating in tip-top condition and comply with legislation.
“Jaama is the industry’s benchmark for quality and innovation and is established as the UK’s most recommended software supplier in the fleet, leasing and hire markets.
“As well as Key2 technology delivering financial savings and improved operating efficiencies, businesses across the public and private sectors are generating administration benefits as fleet department employees become more productive. This means they are able to turn their attentions to other more strategic management areas as a consequence of the time savings generated by Key2.”
Mark Cartwright, the FTA’s head of vans and light commercial vehicles, said: “Van Excellence is all about recognising excellence across the sector. Jaama’s support of Van Excellence demonstrates their commitment in supporting van operators and FTA is delighted to welcome the company as a Van Excellence partner.”
