Freight Transport Association – Van Excellence Scheme
Van Excellence is an industry-led programme facilitated by the Freight Transport Association (FTA) to encourage adoption of best-practice safety standards by van operators regardless of their sector or fleet size.
At its core is the Van Excellence Standard developed in consultation with leading van operators. The Standard provides practical and achievable guidance on ‘what good looks like’ in terms of safe van operations. The Standard provides the basis for Operator Accreditation, Operator Guides and both management and driver orientated training.
The primary objective of Van Excellence is to identify and share operational best-practice with van operators with a view to reducing exposure to risk to both employees and the public at large.
