05 May Fleet Source sponsor for CILT Annual Awards for Excellence 2017
Fleet Source are pleased to announce that they are sponsoring the Vulnerable Road User Safety category at the 2017 CILT Annual Awards for Excellence on the 19th October.
An outline of the VRU category is ‘for outstanding achievement within initiatives which stop death or injury to vulnerable road users. Achievements can include road safety initiatives, transport planning solutions or operational developments which raise awareness of all parties sharing the road network. The entry should show measures that demonstrate the significant improvements from the initiative’.
The category (sponsored last year by Transport for London) won in 2016 by Hertfordshire Road Safety Partnership, is part of the prestigious event hosted by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport which celebrates and recognises achievement of the highest standards and professional approaches to the practice of logistics, transport and operations.
Kevin Richardson, Chief Executive, CILT, said: ‘Our Awards recognise those individuals and businesses who demonstrate a significant contribution to the development of our profession and sector.”
A number of industry leaders attend the one-night event from all areas of the industry, including last years attendees National Express, Cemex, DHL, UPS, BBC, TNT, Reading Buses and many more.
The Awards evening is hailed as one of the best networking events of the year and Fleet Source are pleased and proud to be sponsoring a category so relevant to the nationwide training they are industry leaders in delivering – Safe Urban Driving (Vulnerable Road User training).
