RAC launches award for van fleet efficiency

RAC and RAC Engineer, in partnership with leading van GPS tracking technology company Fleetmatics, have launched the Van Fleet Efficiency Awards, designed to celebrate the efforts being made by van fleets across the cooling industry.

The awards, endorsed by the Freight Transport Association’s Van Excellence scheme, are designed to cast a light on companies proactively striving to reduce their fuel consumption and emissions, while improving driver ability and customer delivery.

Managing fuel is a key element in reducing the supply chain’s carbon footprint and the Awards complement RAC’s commitment to recognising environmental progress by the industry.

Open to all those managing RAC van fleets across the UK, the awards will recognise best practice by companies reducing/managing their fuel emissions.

The awards will consider measures such as business mileage, the use of fuel monitoring systems, vehicle selection lists and environmental initiatives like carbon offsetting and tyre management programmes.

The entries will be judged by the editor of RAC Engineer and the head of the Van Excellence scheme. The winners, along with two highly commended companies, will be announced in October and awarded at a lunch in front of invited guests. The winner will receive a trophy and Fleet Efficiency decals that can be put on the vans.
