Fleet Truck of the Year

This award is for the 44-tonne tractor unit that offers the best overall package for fleet operators.

Manufacturers can select which truck model to present but it must be a 6x2 tractor unit with 400hp to 500hp. It can use any type of fuel. It must be a model which is currently available for UK operators to purchase, so no obsolete or prototype vehicles.

Judges will make their selection based on:

  • Fuel economy
  • Refuelling infrastructure (for non-diesel drive trains)
  • Driver satisfaction
  • Safety
  • Environmental impact
  • Specification options
  • Dealer support
  • Breakdown cover
  • Weight
  • Captive finance options
  • Total cost of ownership (based on 150,000kms a year over three years)

Manufacturers may be asked to make a 20-minute presentation either in person or online to a panel of operators on their candidate vehicle.
