Norse South East’s vehicle maintenance workshop at the Southmoor depot in Havant has achieved ‘Van Excellence’ status for the fifth year running.

The re-accreditation involved an audit by the Freight Transport Association, which evaluated the company’s processes, development, vehicles and training of drivers.

Norse South East has a fleet of 105 vehicles that includes refuse freighters, general works vans and grounds equipment and plant.

Norse South East’s Paul Stanley, said: “As Transport Manager, I am proud of this achievement which involves all the drivers, operatives and Operational Managers involved in ensuring that vans go out the depot in a road worthy condition each day.”

Van Excellence is a scheme designed by some of the best van operators in the UK; facilitated and managed by the Freight Transport Association to recognise excellence and improve operational standards.

*Norse South East also offers MOTs and servicing and vehicle repairs of cars, vans, minibuses and motorbikes for the general public as well as fleet vehicles from its depot. Email or call 02392 488000.
