Entries are open for the tenth annual Australasian Fleet Champions Awards. Brake, the road safety charity organises the awards through its Global Fleet Champions initiative and is inviting entries from fleet operators and suppliers working to reduce crashes and pollution from vehicles being driven on work purposes. The deadline for entries is Friday 26 July 2024 and the winners will be announced at a ceremony in October.

The Awards recognise the achievements of organisations and individuals working in the field of road risk management. The 2023 Award Winners included organisations such as Beca, Alexander Group, Fleetcoach and Queenstown Lakes District Council.

The awards are free to enter and are being offered in the following categories for organisations:

  • Company Driver Safety
  • Fleet Safety Product
  • Road Safety in the Community
  • Safe Vehicles
  • Sustainable Journeys

There are also categories recognising individual fleet professionals for their work in fleet safety. Last year, Rod Alexander from Alexander Group, and David Boyce from NZ Trucking Association were winners.

For 2024, an additional individual category has been introduced – Fleet Driver of the Year. The full list of individual categories is:

  • Fleet Driver of the Year
  • Road Risk Manager of the Year
  • Outstanding Commitment to Road Safety

“Organisations with staff who drive on work purposes have an important part to play in making our roads safer. The Fleet Champions Awards are a fantastic opportunity to recognise the effort that organisations are making to reduce incidents involving at-work drivers and vehicles,” Brake NZ Director Caroline Perry said.

“The awards are entered by a range of fleet operators and suppliers, and I’d urge any organisation that has put measures in place to reduce their road risk to consider entering the awards or nominating someone else within the industry.”

The Awards are part of Global Fleet Champions, an initiative by Brake, the road safety charity for fleet professionals, aimed at sharing best practice in road risk management. Anyone involved in managing at-work drivers, and suppliers to fleets, can join the free service to gain access to best practice information through events and online and downloadable tools for managers and drivers.
