Fleets, manufacturers and suppliers are set to do battle once again for the keenly-contested Fleet News Awards.
It takes real effort to win these awards: they represent the pinnacle of fleet success and honour excellence, innovation and quality.
The judges are drawn from experts across the fleet sector, including fleets themselves, and they give up hours of their time to scrutinise the entries and take part in the judging days.
The process is tightly monitored by awards' chair Christopher Macgowan and all judging will be audited, to ensure only the most worthy companies win each category.
So what does it mean to win? Winning a Fleet News Award means something – to the company and its staff.
Yes, it takes time to pull together the information and, for the fleet categories, to prepare for the 30-minute interview in front of the panel of judges.
But it’s worth it.
But don’t take our word for it; every year winners tell us how much it means to them to collect a Fleet News Awards trophy:
It is wonderful to be acknowledged for our innovative EV strategy by a Transport Industry leader such as Fleet News. Through its wide-reaching influence it has been a catalyst for bringing a diverse range of stakeholders together to understand the complexity of the challenges ahead. The ceremony itself is a fantastic opportunity to network and I would recommend anyone to attend. Fraser Crichton, corporate fleet operations manager at Dundee City Council – winner of environmental innovation
For me, the Fleet News Awards brings together some of the best people and businesses within the fleet industry, showcasing the wealth of talent on offer. To be nominated is great recognition of the work done throughout the year and allows fleets the chance to be judged against their peers. Having been fortunate enough to be recognised at the awards with a Highly commended in one of the headline categories is a huge confidence boost as well as giving acknowledgment of the professionalism I have tried to bring to my role within the industry. Being nominated for any of the Fleet News awards is a great way of raising your company profile and showcasing the work done within the industry. Matt Hammond, M Group head of fleet (formerly Altrad) – highly commended for fleet manager of the year
We were delighted to be highly commended at the Fleet News Awards. Environmental sustainability is at the heart of everything we do at the Brecon Beacons National Park and we take great pride in our fleet of electric vehicles. The award aptly recognises the hard work of staff who have modernised transportation for the organisation. The award will take pride of place in our offices. Kevin Brooker, IT systems & fleet, Brecon Beacons National Park Authority - highly commended for fleet manager of the year
To win ‘Most Improved Manufacturer’, after such a difficult year, was a real honour. To then also win Fleet Manufacturer of the Year – voted for by readers – is a huge achievement. Regarded as a benchmark in the industry among our customers, we value the annual Fleet News Awards and the spotlight they shine on our teams. Rob East, general manager for Corporate Sales at BMW Group UK
More proud winners will collect their trophies at the awards ceremony in London on 16th March 2022.
