For the third year running, Norse Commercial Services' Transport Division has been awarded accreditation under an award winning initiative which has been developed by Freight Transport Association (FTA). 'Van Excellence' is an industry-led initiative, in conjunction with some of the UK's leading van operators, which aims to:
- Enhance standards of van operator compliance
- Raise standards within the industry
- Improve the perception of vans and light commercial vehicles
- Enhance the reputation of organisations operating van fleets
The award is only made following an independent audit covering two aspects of vehicle operations:
- Vehicle related understanding including, roadworthiness, safe working environment, vehicle standards, and administration; and driver related undertakings, including licensing, behaviour, compliance, competence, training, and identification.
Norse is one of the first 50 operators in the region to receive the Van Excellence accreditation. The award covers Norse's Norwich based fleet operations, which include around 500 vans and minibuses. Nationally, Norse operates a fleet of 1700 vehicles through its Head Office and UK subsidiaries.
