2018 Fleet World Honours debuts electric mobility innovation award

Fleet industry suppliers including companies at the forefront of electric mobility are being invited to enter next year’s Fleet World Honours, which are now open for entries.

Fleet World Honours 2017

Next year’s Fleet World Honours will include an ‘Innovation in Electric Mobility’ category.

Taking place on Tuesday 13 February 2018 at the RAC Club, Pall Mall, London, the Fleet World Honours – the most prestigious event on the fleet calendar – will once again spotlight those companies at the forefront of developing new products and solutions for the fleet sector.

For the first time, this will include an ‘Innovation in Electric Mobility’ category to recognise the vital work among the industry to help fleet operators shift to ultra low emission vehicles ahead of government plans to phase out sales of solely petrol and diesel powered cars and vans in the UK by 2040, as it puts the focus on zero-emission capability.

Entries are now open for applications for the Innovation in Electric Mobility award as well as categories for innovation in contract hire and leasing, customer service, SMR, remarketing, risk management, driver management, rental, fuel saving/management, cost reduction, mobile comms, telematics and accident management.

The latest developments by carmakers will also come under focus at the 2018 Fleet World Honours, including Fleet Manufacturer of the Year, Most Improved Fleet Manufacturer and Best Ultra Low Emission Vehicle, while also awarding the leaders within each car category.

Meanwhile the Honours will also recognise fleet operators at the forefront of innovation, with the Fleet Environmental Award, Fleet Safety Award and Fleet Management Award.
Both the fleet operator and manufacturer awards are not open for submissions and are judged entirely by the Fleet World Group editors.

The 2018 Van Fleet World Honours will be presented at a separate event, taking place at Twickenham Stadium on 22 March 2018. Entry forms for the Innovation categories will be available shortly.

The deadline for entries closes on Monday 15 January 2018.
