Fleet Transport Awards 2020

Fleet Transport Awards … for this year only … is going Virtual!

Honouring #StrengthInUnity Transport Heros

As the Fleet Transport Awards were scheduled to take place on the evening of 1 October next at the Citywest Hotel, Dublin, due to the ongoing uncertainties surrounding travel, mass gatherings and accommodation, the biggest annual event in the Irish road transport industry will happen ‘but not as we know it’ – it’s going Virtual!

For the fifteenth running of the Fleet Transport Awards programme, this year the focus will be directed towards #StrenghtInUnity Transport Heros whereby Haulage and Logistics companies together with Passenger Transport operators will be honoured in how they reacted and responded to the transport needs during the Coronavirus pandemic. Details about entry/nominations will be announced shortly.

The annual Irish Truck of the Year Awards, another element of the Fleet Transport Awards, is also changing slightly for this year, with the introduction of the Best Fleet Truck Brand of the Year Award 2021 and the Best Fleet Van Brand of the Year Award 2021. The judging criteria here will include responses from the truck distributors and fleet operators running multibrand vehicles.

As we live in unprecedented times, and due to the ongoing social distancing restrictions, the usual Networking opportunities will be dramatically reduced, which in essence is what the Fleet Transport Awards are all about as well as, of course, honouring best practice in the road haulage industry along with the truck awards. With an event of its size, we had to consider the health and safety of our patrons, attendees, sponsors and exhibitors. Therefore, we are hosting the Fleet Transport Awards event on-line on the planned date of Thursday, 1 October 2020,” explained Jarlath Sweeney, Group Editor, Fleet Publications.

We look forward to getting back to the ‘big stage’ event next year with a special setting but in the meantime we are planning an interesting on-line presentation of our awards on our set date, presented once again by RTE Radio 1 presenter Shay Byrne,” he concluded.
