We will work safely or not at all

40SEVEN achieves Van Excellence accreditation

40SEVEN is proud to announce that we been accredited to the Van Excellence operators programme, which demonstrates our commitment to achieving the highest standards of safety, compliance and efficiency in fleet management.

The Van Excellence operator programme is a voluntary scheme administered by FTA, that requires operators to carry out daily vehicle checks, regular servicing of  vehicles and to encourage safe and efficient driving skills through training and driver awareness.

Chris Lipscomb, Director of Operations at FTA, comments:

“Van Excellence was launched in 2010 with the aim of professionalising van driving; nearly ten years later, it is fair to say its members have made great strides in improving the operational standards of the sector. With 91 companies achieving Operator Accreditation this year alone, we are extremely proud of Van Excellence; it remains the only industry group responsible for maintaining and championing the very highest standards of compliance across the van market.

“Whether a business operating a fleet of more than 5,000 vans – as does our largest member, BT Fleet – or an organisation with a single vehicle, the need for safety remains the same and must not be overlooked. Van Excellence is at the heart of FTA’s vans strategy and we plan to take it from strength to strength. And with many new projects in the pipeline, including the development of a specialist emission zone advice service, FTA has positioned itself at the forefront of the burgeoning vans sector; watch this space for more exciting developments in 2020.”
