When it comes to setting out your road transport requirements, you can’t afford to make mistakes.
Work Related Road Risk (WRRR) is everybody’s responsibility - even if you don’t have your own fleet. The delivery of goods and services generates road transport and any collisions involving your suppliers can affect your business and, ultimately, your reputation.
FORS, the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme, is a nationwide, voluntary accreditation scheme dedicated to driving-up standards across the road transport industry. Now in its 11th year and with over 5,000 members across the UK and Europe, FORS continues to provide best practice principles for transport operators working with a wide range of commercial vehicles, including HGVs, van, passenger carrying vehicles, and powered two-wheelers. FORS encompasses all aspects of safety, efficiency, and environmental protection. FORS trains fleet operators to measure, monitor and improve performance, encouraging members to strive for best possible working practices to improve vehicle productivity and reduce costs.
FORS members stand out from the crowd; operating to standards above the legal minimum and benefitting from access to a wide range of incentives that provide a competitive edge.
FORS can be used by contract specifiers to ensure that the safest, most efficient fleets are used. By specifying FORS in your contracts with fleet operators, your organisation is protecting and enhancing its reputation and helping to improve transport standards across the UK. For contract specifiers FORS offers valuable benefits and this is why an increasing number are making FORS a condition of business. Currently there are 35 FORS Specifiers and these include companies such as: TfL, Tideway, London Concrete, AECOM, Tarmac, Costain Skanska Joint Venture, Heathrow Airport, HS2, MACE, Camden Council and many more.
Join the growing band of organisations that manage WRRR and air quality by including FORS in your procurement policies and supply chain contracts.
