AJAX cleans up with Van Excellence Accreditation

Tuesday 02 August 2016

AJAX (South East) Ltd is the first operator to achieve Van Excellence Operator Accreditation using the recently launched Van Excellence Small Fleet Programme.

Kent based AJAX are a specialist same day courier, dedicated to offering a first class service in the same day delivery for urgent documents, parcels & pallets, and is the latest accredited operator reinforces the message to light goods vehicle operators.

“Since we launched Van Excellence in 2010, it’s fair to say that the majority of our Accredited Operators run sizeable van fleets” says Mark Cartwright, Head of Vans at FTA.

“Talking to smaller operators, it was clear that they often needed more support in putting into place the systems and processes we need to see before awarding accreditation. Our Small Fleet Programme does that by providing the tools and support needed.”

Derek Golding, Director Fleet Operations, Ajax Couriers said: “We run a small fleet of vans and aspire to operate at the highest standards; this is why the Van Excellence Small Fleet Programme is ideal for us. The programme provides us with an intuitive Fleet Management Software package, all of FTA’s Van Excellence information and support including access to their Member Advice Centre.”

Mark Cartwright continued: "Van Excellence works perfectly for van operators of all shapes and sizes. We’ve accredited some of the largest fleets in the past few years, including Network Rail and BT, but we have also now offer a solution for smaller fleets to maintain fleet management records and offers the ability to carry out the Van Excellence assessment remotely.

“FTA is delighted to award the Van Excellence Operator Accreditation to AJAX who have demonstrated the same high operating standards and compliance management as some of the largest fleets in the UK.”
