Stream named the Great British Fleet Awards ‘Innovation in Green Travel’ winner
Stream was amongst the winners announced at the inaugural Great British Fleet Awards, which recognises excellence across the fleet industry.
Held at the London Novotel West, the prestigious awards celebrated the achievements of individual fleet managers, plus software providers, suppliers and vehicle manufacturers.
Stream Go’s electric vehicle route optimisation feature was awarded the coveted ‘Innovation in Green Travel’ winner. LeasePlan UK was highly commended in the category.
Other companies winning awards included Europcar, the RAC, Allstar, Ford, Renault, McLaren, Addison Lee and Galliford Try.

The adoption of electric vehicles as part of commercial fleets has already increased exponentially in the UK in recent years, and that investment only looks set to expand further with the introduction of environmental, economic, technological or legislative factors, such as:
- Government incentives, like tax benefits, discounts on congestion charges, and plug-in grants
- Commercial electric vehicles being released onto the market at a comparable cost to existing commercial vehicles
- Introduction of Clear Air Zones (CAZ) in several major UK cities
- Concerns around the environmental impacts associated with running a large fleet, and the positive PR opportunities that can still be generated around CSR initiatives
- Ever lower day-to-day running and maintenance costs, and reduced overall life cycle costs of electric fleets.
Released last year, Stream Go for electric fleets makes it easy for businesses to optimise first and last mile deliveries and collections using alternative fuel vehicles.
Stream Go for electric vehicle route optimisation enables transport planners to quickly and easily plan delivery, collection or service routes that take the range of electric vehicles into account, so vehicles can complete their route with time to get back to the depot for recharging.
Dave Pickburn, Stream’s founder said:
“We are, of course, delighted to have been recognised in the inaugural Great British Fleet Awards but to be recognised for Stream’s work with route optimisation for electric vehicles makes the award even better. The environmental impact of the logistics sector is something that we all have to consider, and supporting the move to EVs as part of the Stream product suite is something that the whole team is immensely proud of.”
Commenting on the awards themselves, Fleet World editor Martyn Collins said:
“Fleet World’s Great British Fleet Awards, is where the year’s best fleet cars, vans, industry innovations and even individuals, are recognised and celebrated. We received a great many entries for the awards making the judging process fascinating and challenging. Choosing the shortlists and eventual winners was very tough – so I’d like to congratulate all the winners for their contribution to the fleet industry.”
