Mercedes-Benz was named Van Fleet Manufacturer of the Year at the Commercial Fleet Awards last week.

At the event in the Hilton Metropole, Birmingham, the Sprinter also won awards for Large Panel Van and Best Van Chassis Derivative.

The Commercial Fleet Awards were judged by a panel of industry experts, including van operators themselves, who use these vehicles in their daily work.

Steve Bridge, managing director of Mercedes-Benz Vans, said: ‘To be crowned Van Fleet Manufacturer of the Year feels like the absolute icing on the cake for what is set to be our most successful year ever.

‘I would like to dedicate this award to the hardworking team, both at Head Office and across our nationwide dealer network, who have all been unrelenting in their singular focus to keep our customers’ businesses moving.

‘I would also like to thank our loyal fleet customers, many of whom we have been working with across several years, if not decades. They are the lifeblood of our business and their commitment to us, willingness to try new ideas and push boundaries together, has proved to be a winning combination.’
