Loughborough-based Reflex Vans is the first van rental business to receive Van Excellence operator accreditation from the Freight Transport Association (FTA). The company offers both long and short-term rental packages for companies nationwide. All vans fitted with speed limiters and tracking systems to provide additional safety and security.
Van Excellence was launched in 2010 to promote high standards of van operation and driving by accrediting operators against an industry code of good practice. This includes educating drivers about safe loading, maximum payloads, vehicle roadworthiness and speed limits, as well as driver and licensing compliance.
“We’re delighted to award Van Excellence operator accreditation to Reflex, the first van rental business to achieve this standard, said Mark Cartwright, the FTA’s Head of Vans. “Reflex’s policy of speed limiting its rental vans by default allows it to comply with the Van Excellence Code and we applaud the company for leading the way.”
Lisa Spong, Head of Sales for Reflex, said, “The recognition of the Van Excellence accreditation demonstrates our commitment to safer, more efficient and sustainable van operations. In turn, this will help our standing with customers and employees and reassure both the public and government that van operators are addressing the issues of concern to them.”
