Transport minister Mike Penning MP awarded Van Excellence certificates of accreditation to AAH Pharmaceuticals, Enterprise Managed Services, Iron Mountain and the London Borough of Redbridge when he visited the Freight Transport Association’s stand (5D80, Hall 5 ) at the CV Show this morning.

Van Excellence is an industry-led initiative to raise standards and improve the image of the UK’s growing van sector and currently represents 13 organisations operating over 22,000 vans – with 80 more in the pipeline.

James Hookham, FTA’s Managing Director – Policy and Communications, said:

“We are grateful for Mike Penning’s support for Van Excellence, which endorses the degree of seriousness with which industry has embraced this key FTA initiative. The early adopters of Van Excellence are rightly proud of achieving accreditation for this demanding and comprehensive Code of Practice.

“We look forward to welcoming many more companies through the process in due course.”
