Heavy haulage leader Salvatori strikes Gold

Salvatori, Kent’s leading transport and logistics company, celebrates a monumental achievement: securing the esteemed FORS Gold accreditation. This recognition showcases Salvatori’s unwavering dedication to safety and sustainability in heavy haulage, cementing its position as a leader excelling in safety, operational efficiency and eco-conscious practices.

The journey to FORS Gold began in 2013, when Salvatori successfully achieved FORS Bronze and FORS Silver. The move to then go for Gold was driven by customer needs and the desire to operate to the highest standards. To give the company the best stead to achieve FORS Gold, the team:

  • Introduced advanced safety measures, including the implementation of cutting-edge safety technology, comprehensive driver training and advanced vehicle systems to reduce road accidents.
  • Adopted green transport, including purchasing eco-friendly, fuel-efficient vehicles and introducing practices to minimise emissions, which has reduced the company’s carbon footprint.
  • Optimised schedules and delivery processes to enhance efficiency, reducing waste and easing road congestion.
  • Launched driver wellbeing initiatives promoting driver health, including mental health support programmes and ergonomic vehicle designs.

Remi Martysz, Salvatori’s Transport Director, expressed pride in the team’s accomplishment, stating: “This FORS Gold accreditation is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire organization. It reflects our commitment to not only meeting but exceeding industry standards in safety and sustainability. We believe that by setting such high benchmarks for ourselves, we contribute to a safer and more eco-conscious future for the transportation sector”.

Salvatori’s FORS Gold accolade underscores the organisation’s commitment to driver safety, public welfare and sustainability within the transport and logistics sector.
