Somerset-based C&D South West Ltd, based in Chard, has, once again been successful in achieving Bronze status in The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme.
The scheme (FORS) is a voluntary accreditation scheme for logistics companies which aims to raise the level of quality within fleet operations and to demonstrate that those operators are achieving exemplary levels of best practice in safety, efficiency, and environmental protection.
Despite the problems brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting suspension of the scheme back in March, the audits were eventually phased back in from July and C&D’s Bronze accreditation was finally announced last week.
Lorna Hammond, Managing Director of C&D South West Ltd, said: “The team here at C&D are delighted that we’ve been awarded with the FORS Bronze accreditation for another year, which clearly demonstrates that we, as an operator employ good practices and comply with the requirements laid out by The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme standard.
“This illustrates yet again that we are dedicated to driver and vehicle safety, and 100% committed to improving operating practices through effective monitoring of fuel and tyre usage.
John Hix, Director of FORS, added: “FORS is built around a principle of continuous improvement, where members strive for even higher operational standards as they progress through the levels of the scheme. FORS accreditation goes beyond basic legal compliance,
“Our vision is to enable all fleet operators to attain and maintain the best possible level of productivity and efficiency with the least impact on society and the environment and to facilitate continuous improvements in operating standards”
