Paul Simonds, of G4S Cash Solutions, has picked up the Van Driver of the Year 2022 award from Logistics UK.
Following a day of competition at the ITT Hub show in Farnborough, Simonds fought off strong competition from 10 other finalists, also winning the Van Excellence Driver of the Year 2022 prize.
“The role of the van driver requires a multitude of skills,” said Kevin Green, marketing and communications director at Logistics UK.
“Drivers often have to navigate changing road spaces and time pressures while ensuring they demonstrate safe and efficient driving at all times. The challenges entrants have taken part in as part of the competition were designed to replicate some of the skills needed in industry, including safe driving style, legislative knowledge and safe and efficient manoeuvring.”
