The Association of Driven Vehicle Delivery Agents (ADVDA) is the trade association for vehicle delivery agents has been set up in the UK. The ADVDA aims to bring quality, consistency and conformity to the UK vehicle delivery industry. In any year, British companies move more than 1 million vehicles with individual drivers or trucks, and it is hoped that the association will eventually become a quality standard for the industry.

If the code of conduct standards are met, around 30-40 companies operating in the sector could be eligible for membership to the ADVDA. Some of the largest companies in the sector helped form the association, including DMN Logistics, Pro-Driver, Assured Group, and Automotive Logistics Ltd.

Too often the vehicle delivery sector is seen as a necessary evil and a cost, but it performs a hugely valuable service in collecting and delivering vehicles on behalf of organisations with drivers carrying out an ambassadorial role on behalf of customers whether they are leasing companies, dealers, or another type of association.

The body has key objectives, which include promoting the use of vehicle handover software to ensure a consistent customer experience, promoting a fair price for services, improving quality standards within the vehicle delivery industry, ensuring a quality of inspection, and working with retail and leasing industries to ensure new vehicles are of quality.

Finch Group are actively working with ADVDA to provide insurance solutions to members, to speak to our experts email us at transporters@finchgroup.net
