Transport plays a vital role in the success of organisations, enabling the transportation of people, goods, and essential supplies. While it is essential, we must acknowledge that transport also has negative consequences such as contributing to climate change and local air pollution, increasing the risk of road crashes, and being a significant cost category for organisations.


To promote sustainability and reduce the negative impact of transport, we must take a multi-faceted approach that includes both individual and collective actions. By adopting sustainable transport practices, we can increase environmental sustainability by reducing emissions, promote social sustainability by decreasing the risk of road crashes and increasing diversity, and increase economic sustainability by reducing costs.


This year, the Best Transport Achievement Award recognises the Fleet Manager and the organisation that are an inspiring example to others. In line with the 2023 Conference theme, Sustainable Transport for a Better World, the winning submission will demonstrate measurable impact on sustainable transport / fleet management. The winning entry must be replicable for others, and demonstrate professionalism, innovation, and strong tangible results.


Fleet Forum invites you to apply for The Best Transport Achievement Award 2023. This is an opportunity to receive professional recognition of your successfully executed project.
