Steve Turner, Sales Director, Bott:
“We’ve worked with the Van Excellence scheme since launch, and for us becoming a Gold Partner is a natural next step in our relationship. At Bott, we work closely with vehicle operators to drive standards in the industry and we fully support the FTA’s work in establishing a clear set of operating practices which have become the gold standard for van fleet operators. As well as supporting the scheme we also run a Van Excellence accredited fleet, and can testify to the benefits of adopting the Van Excellence processes.”
