FORS, the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme is fast becoming recognised as the transport industry’s premier accreditation scheme. Many organisations are now requesting this quality standard from their transport providers as a prerequisite of the selection process.

As one of over 5,000 members, we have progressed through FORS Bronze and Silver and have been FORS Gold accredited since 2015, achieving exemplary levels of best practice and the highest awarded accreditation available on the scheme.

FORS for reassurance

By selecting a FORS member, you will have peace of mind that you are working with a reputable operator who is committed to making their business safer, smarter and greener. FORS focuses on four key areas – vehicles, drivers, management and operations. The scheme encourages and trains members to measure, monitor and improve performance to achieve and maintain high standards of safety, efficiency and sustainability.

FORS for a safer future

In 2014, our Training Co-ordinator Andrea Senior commented:

“We first became aware of FORS as a contractual condition of working on the Crossrail project throughout London. Although it was initially a commercial decision to pursue the accreditation, we quickly realised that the benefits of working to such high standards would be of great advantage throughout all areas of the company; from ensuring the health and safety of our workforce, to helping us work towards reducing our carbon emissions, thus meeting environmental targets.”

FORS for unrivalled progress

Since committing to FORS, we have made significant changes and improvements to our business, invested heavily in additional safety features for our vehicles and evolved our driver training all of which supports our mission statement, ‘to provide our customers with a standard of service excellence, through reliability and quality, that is acknowledged to be the best in the industry.’
