Our comprehensive fleet ranges from small vans to specialist Hiab vehicles.

CG Haulage operates a wide selection of vehicles which include curtain siders, flat backs with and without Hiab facilities. We work in partnership with some of the UK’s most well-known organisations and have delivered to world famous venues including Regents Park and the new Wembley Stadium. Joanne Vince, our Director is our elected Fuel and Emissions Campion and she explains how important FORS is to our Company.

cg1We came across FORS when tendering for work across London. When we looked at the requirements and benefits of joining the scheme we saw that they fitted in perfectly with our ethos of improving safety whilst complementing our drive to improve fuel efficiency and reduce our environmental impact.

We take compliance and safety very seriously so we achieved our Bronze and Silver Accreditation first time. FORS did help us by providing training and tools that improved the policies and procedures.

 The performance management toolkit really helped us set our targets for reducing our carbon footprint while improving our MPG. FORS has helped us improve our filing systems and procedures.

 ‘FORS has helped us achieve compliance and safety’

 We have implemented all the policy’s FORS as suggested and with that we haven’t received any Parking fines or had in any accidents in the past 12 months.

 ‘We haven’t received any PCN’s or had any accidents in the past 12 months’

 We have increased our MPG across the fleet and kept our incidents and PCN’s to zero for the past 12 months. Which means we have managed to reduce our Parking fines and charges by 100% as well as our accidents.
