Hertz UK Launches New Service for Van Excellence Operators

Hertz UK has launched a new service offering for accredited members of the Van Excellence scheme, which is backed by the Freight Transport Association (FTA). As a Van Excellence Industry Partner, Hertz will provide preferential rates for van and car rental, vehicle telematics and Hertz On Demand vehicle pooling technology. The Van Excellence scheme is a UK initiative that aims to enhance standards of van operator compliance.

Additional benefits from Hertz will include access to contingency vehicles, priority service response, dedicated fleet management and the Hertz/FTA online motoring shop. In addition, Van Excellence accredited members will gain free membership to Hertz Gold Plus Rewards, Nectar loyalty points with every rental, and discounted Hertz leisure rates worldwide for employees.

Michel Taride, group RAC president at Hertz International, said: "As a Van Excellence Industry Partner, Hertz is a keen supporter of the FTA's voluntary Van Excellence Code. The code sets high standards in vehicle maintenance, driver competence and behavior, and environmental impact. The launch of our exclusive offering for accredited Van Excellence members recognizes and rewards those fleet operators who share our goal of raising these standards across the van sector."

Mark Cartwright, head of vans at FTA, added: "Van Excellence accredited operators now account for almost 170,000 vans on the UK roads. It's great to see Hertz recognize these operators' efforts with a specially designed van offering."
