FORS REACHES 3000TH ACCREDITATION
Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) is delighted to announce its 3000TH company accreditation. This significant milestone for FORS highlights the substantial support of the industry nationwide in demonstrating a commitment to raising professional standards.
TPA Portable Roadways, a leader for the provision of portable roadway access solutions to the outdoor events, transmission, construction and utility sectors, is the 3000th company to be accredited by the award-winning recognition scheme, FORS. TPA Portable Roadways are based in Worksop, Nottinghamshire and after the scheme was rolled out nationally earlier this year FORS is pleased to report the popularity of the scheme for operators based out of London.
Martin Eden, TPA Portable Roadways, said: “We are looking to become bigger and better at what we do and how we do it and our recent FORS accreditation will help us achieve that. The accreditation will provide us with more direction with procedures in the logistics industry and we look forward to progressing alongside FORS.”
Ian Wainwright, Head of Freight and Fleet Programmes, Transport for London, said: “We are delighted that FORS has reached this impressive milestone of 3,000 accreditations. Since 2008 FORS accreditation has enabled fleet operators in London to demonstrate their commitment to improving the safety and efficiency of their vehicles. The success and growth of FORS now places it as the national accreditation scheme for freight and fleet operators.”
FORS is graduated into three levels; bronze, silver and gold. Over 2,700 companies are bronze accredited, over 200 companies are silver accredited and over 50 companies are gold accredited.
