Trade Van Driver (TVD), which claims to be the UK’s top van magazine for small business users, has announced the winners of the 2020.
The publication says that it is the only magazine which caters for the owner-driver and small fleet operator. As such its adds that its awards are different from others as they are judged not only by the expert panel of journalists at the magazine, but also by a panel of readers who use light commercial vehicles as part of their businesses.
The TVD Awards aim to give recognition to the manufacturers, firms and people who, in the opinion of the judges, offer the very best to retail van buyers.
The magazine’s editor Matthew Eisenegger commented: “Trade Van Driver Magazine prides itself on offering a true reflection of the thoughts and feelings of its readership. Now in their ninth year, it is great to see some products taking the accolade for the ninth time, as well as new products scoring a first win.”
