Run by the websites Business Car Manager and Business Vans, the Small Fleet Leasing Awards highlight the very best companies providing leasing services to the SME sector.

With significant backing from Alphabet, Arval, LeasePlan’s Network brand, Lex Autolease, Nexus Vehicle Management and Applied Driving Techniques, there are seven categories with one company being named the Small Fleet Leasing Company of the Year.

Last year this was won by Fleet Alliance.

“The categories were really packed with some excellent entries of a very high standard,” said Ralph Morton, editorial director of Business Car Manager.

“I know the judges have thought long and hard before drawing up their shortlists.”
