Ford becomes latest partner of Van Excellence 18 July 2012

Ford is the latest manufacturer to become a Van Excellence partner, joining Mercedes-Benz, VW, Nissan, Fiat and Isuzu in the scheme, which encourages high standards.

"We're delighted to welcome Ford as a Van Excellence partner," says Mark Cartwright, FTA's head of vans and LCV's.

"Our manufacturer partners now represent over half of the UK's annual registrations. Their support is invaluable, particularly as we develop a Van Excellence accreditation scheme for dealers."

The FTA scheme was launched in 2010 to promote high standards of van operation and driving by accrediting operators against an industry code of good practice.

Partners promote the Van Excellence Code amongst their customers and encourage its standards to be adopted and followed throughout the light commercial vehicle sector.

Accredited operators are those who have successfully demonstrated that their fleet management and compliance systems can meet the demanding standards of the Code of Van Excellence, the voluntary code of practice for van fleet operators.
