FTA’s Van Excellence Driver of the Year

The FTA (Freight Transport Association) will be holding its first Van Excellence Driver of the Year contest on Thursday 10 July 2014 at Bruntingthorpe Proving Grounds.

The FTA Van Excellence Driver of the Year contest is open to Van Excellence accredited operators, who have been invited to enter their best driver.

Van Excellence is an award winning industry-led initiative which has been developed by FTA alongside some of the UK’s best van operators from various sectors of the industry. And the scheme was developed to help raise industry standards, improve the public perception of vans/LCVs, and boost the reputation of organisations who operate van fleets.

The events for the day are designed to test the entrants’ abilities across a wide range of skills such as:

  • A fuel economy run
  • Risk awareness
  • Pre-use defect checking
  • A knowledge test
  • Driver behavioural feedback

Mark Cartwight, FTA’s Head of Vans said: “This competition gives us a terrific opportunity to show this vital sector of UK logistics in a positive light and gain van drivers the recognition they deserve for their skill and the importance of the job they do.”
