Press Release: FORS and CLOCS join Motormax Seminar Programme at 2022 CV Show

Motormax is delighted to announce their seminar programme for this year’s CV Show.  Held at Birmingham’s NEC 24-26 May, Motormax will present a series of seminars on their stand alongside industry associations, Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) and Construction Logistics and Community Safety (CLOCS).

Motormax is proud to welcome FORS Glen Davies, who played an instrumental part in the development of FORS, CLOCS and DVS. Glen is also the editor of Lowe’s Transport Managers Handbook. Glen’s daily seminar discusses, should all operating standards be enshrined in law? Is ‘ok practice’ enough in our transport sector? The need for industry-led standards is ever more important in such complex and challenging trading conditions, and it’s down to the logistics and transport sector to demonstrate what ‘good practice’ and ‘best practice’ look like. Whether it’s improving safety standards, minimising environmental impact, creating operational efficiencies, or recruiting and retaining new staff – businesses need to go above and beyond the law to differentiate.

Motormax new product development team present a range of case studies demonstrating how Motormax’ vehicle electronics reduced Saint-Gobain incident frequency rates by 34%.  And CLOCS Sophie Hamilton discusses, ‘Safer, leaner, greener construction logistics – the need for collaboration’.
