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
- Environmental impact
- Specification options
- Dealer support
- Breakdown cover
- 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.
