The annual Fleet Transport Awards event, which was scheduled on October 1st, 2020 to take place in Dublin, is going virtual because of the uncertainties around travelling and gatherings.
The 15th edition of the event will focus on the Transport Heros: haulage, logistic companies and passenger transport operators will be celebrated and honoured for their COVID-19 response. The nominations will soon be announced.
The annual Irish Truck of the Year Awards, is also changing and the categories of the Best Fleet Truck Brand of the Year Award 2021 and the Best Fleet Van Brand of the Year Award 2021 will be introduced, with judging criteria here including responses from the truck distributors and fleet operators running multibrand vehicles.
"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 online 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 online presentation of our awards on our set date, presented once again by RTE Radio 1 presenter Shay Byrne,” he concluded.
