Jatinder Singh, director of J S Sandhu Transport explains how FORS has been beneficial to their company.

JS2We came across FORS when tendering for work in London. Having considered the benefits FORS had to offer, we immediately began to implement procedures in order to improve the fuel efficiency of our fleet and road/driver safety.

J S Sandhu Transport LTD is an independent haulage company that specializes in transporting aggregates for construction companies across London. Established in 2014, the company’s infrastructure has grown and improved significantly since being introduced to FORS.

Working towards the bronze and silver accreditation, the improvements made were very much noticeable. By implementing  new  procedures  we  were able to measure fuel usage and deliver superb, interactive training to our drivers. FORS was very helpful by providing the required training and tools in order to achieve both accreditations first time.

The performance management toolkit was extremely useful and allowed us to set targets to improve the MPG of our vehicle, reduce emissions and upgrade vehicle safety. Minimising engine idling times and installing proximity sensors in each vehicle achieved this. FORS offered excellent training material that allowed each and every member of the fleet to absorb information instantaneously.

‘Educating our drivers and keeping them up to date with road safety has improved confidence and morale significantly.’ Jatinder.

We have also seen a huge improvement in vehicle maintenance and a decline in the number of parking notice charges due to the training we have been able to provide our drivers with, therefore, this has improved their knowledge and understanding. This has been a huge advantage to us of implementing the FORS standards.

‘We have increased our quarter KMPL by 1.36% thanks to FORS.’
