R G Willing Transport is a tipper company, established in 1995 we are based in London. We supply aggregates and asphalt to London and the surrounding counties. We have grown from having one tipper in 1995 to four 32 tonne rigid and two articulated vehicles. Julie Willing, company secretary explains how R G Willing have achieved reductions in fuel use through FORS.
We came across FORS as a contractual condition while working for Tarmac. When we looked into joining FORS we saw an opportunity for ways to improve fuel efficiency and our outlook on health and safety.
R G Willing passed their initial Bronze and Silver assessments first time round with the help of the FORS Training and the Performance Management System. Once we achieved our Bronze and Silver there was no stopping us going for Gold.
The performance management toolkit really helped us set our targets for reducing our carbon footprint while improving our mpg. FORS has also helped us improve our filing systems and procedures. We made use of the benefits from FORS eg: driver license checking, CPC training and the online workshops.
‘FORS has helped us achieve compliance and safety.’
We have implemented all the policy’s FORS has suggested. Also, we have put into force an anti-idling policy to help reduce our fuel usage across the fleet. All our drivers conform well to FORS with a high standard.
All our drivers are:
- SUD Trained
- Cross Rail Trained
- Completed FORS Cycle Safety
- EPIC card holders
- Safety Inducted
‘R G Willing Transport are proud to be a member of the FORS family‘.
