Van Excellence: Safety and costs focus for operators

Written by Ellie

The Freight Transport Association's (FTA) Van Excellence Operational Briefings will focus on delivering improvements for its members in the areas of costs and safety over the coming weeks.

Taking place on several dates in March, the briefings are being delivered in partnership with Mercedes-Benz Vans and are open to all FTA members, as well as fleet operators outside of the group for a small fee.

Individuals in attendance will receive insights from a range of industry professionals into the steps their organisations have taken to deliver significant improvements in costs, safety and compliance in recent years.

The next events to be held as part of the Van Excellence Operational Briefings programme will take place on March 24th at Mercedes-Benz World at Brooklands near Weybridge in Surrey and March 24th at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham.

Attendees will enjoy a keynote address from Adrian Long of the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency, as well as talks from road safety manager at British Gas Jon York, Superintendent Paul Keasey of West Midlands Police and Mike Rayner of Turris-UK.

Steve Bridge, managing director for Mercedes-Benz Vans, said: "All businesses, regardless of size, will recognise the issues of costs and safety as two of the biggest areas of concern when it comes to their fleet.

"We are proud to be associated with the FTA Van Excellence briefings and believe attendees will really benefit from the expert sessions."
