TVL, the UK’s premier supplier of vehicle security products, has been announced as a Gold Partner to FTA’s Van Excellence scheme, an innovative initiative designed to recognise excellence within the vans market and improve operational standards.
TVL is a market leader in commercial vehicle security, designing, building and installing innovative security products to deter and combat the ever-changing modes of attack used by vehicle thieves. TVL’s research and development team boasts more than 85 years of experience and works closely with vehicle manufacturers and police authorities, providing a consultancy service for the development of bespoke security solutions
Will Reeves, Sponsorship and Advertising Manager at FTA, comments: “We are delighted TVL has chosen to become a Van Excellence Gold Partner. Recent research by Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles identified that van theft is up by 45%; TVL’s experience and knowledge in van security will help operators keep their vehicles safe. In addition to supporting FTA’s Van Operational Briefings in May 2020, our Gold Partners provide funding for several other initiatives, including the Van Driver of the Year competition in the summer and the Van Awards in the autumn. We very much look forward to working with TVL this year and seeing how its expertise helps Van Excellence certified operators keep their vehicles secure.”
Laura Moran, Managing Director at TVL, comments: “We are delighted to become a Gold Partner for Van Excellence and support fleet operators with the latest innovation in vehicle security.  Vehicle theft and break-ins are a costly inconvenience for fleets; our goal is to provide best practice advice and support to our customers with solutions to prevent and deter vehicle thefts.”
In 2019, the team at Van Excellence celebrated another successful year for the scheme; 91 companies achieved Van Excellence Operator Certification. FTA also launched a Vans Policy Working Group; comprised of 41 leaders within the sector, the group provides a vital mouthpiece for the industry with government, regulators and other stakeholders and a platform to communicate and debate the issues the market is facing.

Central to the scheme is the Van Excellence Code, a set of minimum best practice standards all van operators should aspire to achieve, covering safety, efficiency and sustainability.
