Matthew James Removals made the decision to progress to FORS Gold to show our commitment to achieving the highest standards of fleet management and road safety. After our initial Bronze accreditation the benefits of being part of the scheme became more apparent as FORS now influenced some of our processes we began to see reduced operating costs through improved driver training and a reduction in vehicle related incidents.
We were therefore motivated to progress, firstly to Silver in 2014 and then finally Gold, each progression requires a greater commitment to quality by both management and employees.
All new vehicles are Euro 6 and fitted with high quality camera, scanning and sounder systems to further enhance our commitment to road safety and our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint.
As a forward thinking company we always look to the future and expect the standard to grow throughout the industry and foresee changes to the expectations on all operators whether FORS accredited or not.
FORS aim is to achieve a performance standard that incorporates road safety, fuel efficiency, and economical operations with reduced vehicle emissions. With a target to make the roads safer, cleaner and less congested with is a benefit to all of us.
