Winners of inaugural Great British Fleet Awards 2019 revealed

The crème de la crème of the fleet industry has been recognised at a prestigious awards ceremony at the inaugural Great British Fleet Event.

Held at the London Novotel West alongside a packed conference line-up and exhibition section, the awards replace the former Fleet World Honours and recognise excellence from across the industry – from individual fleet managers who’ve gone above and beyond, through to suppliers and manufacturers at the cutting-edge of innovation.

Judged by an expert panel of Fleet World Editors, the 34 categories received an extensive list of entries – making the choice of the final winners a very tough decision.

Commenting on the awards, Fleet World editor Martyn Collins said: “Fleet World’s Great British Fleet Awards, is where the year’s best fleet cars, vans, industry innovations and even individuals, are recognised and celebrated. Entries were plentiful, so judging was a long but fascinating process, learning about the best new products and services in our sector. As thus, shortlists were tough – so I’d like to congratulate all the deserving winners today.”
