wright minimix x2We came across FORS when tendering for work in London and Bristol. 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. We have also implemented an anti-idling policy to help reduce our fuel usage across the fleet.

‘We haven’t received any parking fines or been involved in any accidents in the last 2 years’

We have increased our MPG across the fleet and kept our incidents and PCN’s to zero for the past 2 years.
