The Fleet News Awards have been running for around 30 years and are heralded as the ‘Oscars’ of the fleet industry. Mercedes-Benz Cars UK are happy to announce they are this year’s winners of the The Fleet Manufacturer Award.
Fleet News said, “The Fleet News Awards are the ultimate recognition. Whether you are a fleet decision maker, supplier or manufacturer, they are the greatest honour in fleet. It raises the profile of a fleet decision maker both internally and externally and gives a fillip to members of the fleet team or other key stakeholders within the organisation.”
The industry show is one of the biggest evenings of the year for fleets, with over 1400 guests in attendance. Therefore, while the focus of the evening is the announcement of the awards it also helps businesses to strengthen relationships and share ideas.
The Fleet Manufacturer Award is achieved in recognition of consistent customer approach. One of the many reasons Mercedes-Benz won this award was their broad, fleet friendly model range that makes it easier for company car drivers to get behind the wheel.
“Rob East, Head of Fleet, Mercedes-Benz Cars UK: “As the Fleet Manufacturer of the Year title is voted for by Fleet News readers, it makes winning this award even more special. It’s our hard-working, dedicated team and retail partners who have made this possible. We also have a very strong product range, featuring low running costs and strong residual values – making a very competitive offering for our customers.”
As well as their win, Mercedes-Benz was lucky enough to be shortlisted for 5 other awards. They were: best compact premium car, best premium car, best executive car, green fleet manufacturer, most improved fleet manufacturer of the year.
