Voted for by fleet managers as one of the UK’s most trusted Leasing & Salary Sacrifice businesses

The third edition of the 100 Trusted Brands in Fleet Report, launched this morning, reveals the products and service suppliers that vehicle fleet managers can rely on, including Venson Automotive Solutions, one of the UK’s leading independent fleet management specialists.

The 100 Trusted Brands report is a who’s-who of the fleet supply chain and is the only national award that is 100% voted for by fleets. It takes the guesswork out of sourcing fleet suppliers, with peer recommendations reinforcing future buying decisions. 400 UK fleets were interviewed during quarter-one of 2024, to determine their future fleet expenditure and to identify those brands that are positioned for growth.

The report reveals that the Leasing category – which features Venson – delivers the greatest numbers of trusted brands, with Fleet & Risk Services and Tracking rounding off the Top 3. Meanwhile, EV Services is joint fourth, with eleven brands featuring in the report.

Samantha Roff, Managing Director for Venson Automotive Solutions comments, “We are delighted to have been recognised yet again by those that matter – the fleet managers we work in partnership with to support their vehicle leasing and salary sacrifice needs. We pride ourselves in standing by our company values which see us deliver accountable customer service by specialists in our field who have true integrity. Our inclusion in the ‘100 Trusted Brands in Fleet’ report reflects the efforts of the entire Venson team working to support our company ethos of Customer First.  We are immensely grateful to those who recommended us.”

The report also shares exclusive research on electric vehicles, revealing confidence among car fleets as they transition to EVs. 62% of fleets expect to have at least 50% of their vehicles powered by electric by 2028, while large fleets are most likely to have progressed their electric-car adoption, with just 3% of them having not yet started their BEV journeys. But there is still work to do to make EVs mainstream, just 41% of fleets have reviewed their monthly rental bands for their car choice lists to accommodate electric cars, while 54% of fleets provide the option to trade-up to an electric car.

In addition, the report analyses fleet expenditure plans, with significant investment planned for workplace charge points, driver training and driver evaluation tools. EV payment solutions are the number-one priority to assist the transition to electric vehicles.

When asked how fleets can simplify their fleet in the future, 18% of car fleets revealed that ‘consolidating suppliers’ was a priority.

The Editor of the ‘100 Trusted Brands in Fleet’ report, John Sootheran, adds: “This report makes  shortlisting decisions much easier and quicker for fleet operators, and it increases confidence and justification in their choices. In any business, time is money, and making the right choices is critical. That makes our instant-shortlisting data more important and valuable than ever.”
