Last chance to enter Commercial Fleet Awards

Fleet news logo

Commercial Fleet is offering readers a chance to boost their business performance, their fame and their credibility. How? By entering the Commercial Fleet Awards 2018.

Numerous studies that have shown the positive impacts that winning industry awards can have on a business and its employees. Even being shortlisted can have a positive effect, according to studies carried out by awards consultancy Boost.

Entries close on September 30 for fleet operators, suppliers and van/truck manufacturers. The awards ceremony takes place at the Birmingham Hilton Metropole on November 29.

Being shortlisted for a fleet category, for example, is about more than a pat on the back for the fleet manager; it’s about raising the profile of the company brand with customers and potential customers.

Organisations who take seriously their safety and environmental obligations to their van and truck fleets are ideally placed to win business – these things really matter to consumers.

Award winners say it has helped them to acquire new talent, raise their brand profile and improve client relationships. So, to help, we will commit to publicising all shortlisted companies prior to the awards evening and promoting the winners after the event.

We recognise that the number one reason for not entering awards is the fact it can be too time consuming. So, for the fleet categories, we have changed the process.

To begin with, we simply need you to tell us in up to 750 words why you believe you should be shortlisted.

This could include information about new initiatives you have introduced, improvements you have made or simply your continued success in running an efficient, safe fleet of vans and/or trucks.

The judging panel will deliberate and select the best to go through to the shortlisting phase. Only then, once you have bene confirmed as a 2018 finalists, will we need you to complete and entry form giving the judges more detail about your fleet operations.

We believe the Commercial Fleet Awards has the outstanding credentials you need to make entering worthwhile.

Finally, we will also give feedback after the awards evening to all unsuccessful companies – those who were shortlisted but didn’t win and those who did not make the shortlist - to help you in future applications.
