The awards shortlist has been finalised; with experts whittling down scores of high quality entries from around the UK. Reducing fuel bills and emissions, as ever, are at the heart of the judges' thinking.
What's left is a diverse field, where ambulance services take on police, food delivery companies compete with national parks, and healthcare providers vie with waste disposal companies.
In total, 31 fleets and suppliers are fighting it out to be crowned best of the best in 10 categories, awarding those blazing trails in matters like getting low-emissions vehicles into fleets, making a positive effort in the fight against air pollution, and efficiently managing employee vehicles used for work.
The awards also acknowledge those manufacturers laying the technological foundations for transport sustainability in companies and organisations.
There are plenty of local authorities shortlisted too – and not just in the Best Public Sector Fleet category.
But while 31 are in with a shout, only 10 can prevail and get their hands on the coveted gongs, which will be given out on 24 November at the London Transport Museum.
The Fleet Hero Awards have become one of the foremost events in the calendar for those involved in green transport, and this year Transport Minister Andrew Jones MP will join host Robert Llewellyn, famed for TV roles but also a well-known electric vehicle advocate.
The awards are a good opportunity for industry networking and idea-sharing, with key sustainable transport figures set to attend.
Delegates also have the opportunity to make a day of it and attend the Fleet Hero Conference. Speakers from the Government’s Joint Air Quality Unit, BMW, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Arval, Farmdrop, and the BVRLA will talk clean fuels and technologies – with a special focus on air pollution.
