We also provide training for IPAF for our own employees as well as our current customer base and anyone who registers through our website. Established in 2005 out of Hurst End Farm, North Crowley. We currently have 2 offices with a total of 12 vehicles says Dave Hatcher – Transport Co-ordinator. Since join FORS in 2014 we have improved our MPG across the Fleet by 33% and reduced our CO2 by 33 % too.
We decided to go for FORS as best practice. 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 passed our initial bronze assessment first time round, we were also given a few little pointers in best practise going forward. Once we were bronze accredited we really made the most of the benefits on offer, such as the discounts available to us and the performance management tool. We decided to to proceed to silver as we already had everything in place that was needed.
