The aim of FORS is simple. One over-arching scheme that encompasses all aspects of safety, fuel efficiency, economical operations and vehicle emissions. FORS is a voluntary scheme that helps improve operators’ performance in each of these areas.
For vehicle operators, it offers peace of mind that they are meeting their legislative requirements, as well as helping to increase efficiency, reduce costs and win work.
We provide a quality and performance benchmark for van, lorry, mini-bus, coach and bus operators and allows access to a range of exclusive accreditation benefits.
Accreditation can provide the tools to help you become safer, greener and more efficient. It is an excellent way to prove to existing and potential clients your credentials as a high performing operator who adheres to high quality standards.
The Benefits Calculator informs of the possible savings you could make by utilising the offerings from FORS Online.
