Here at DTS we are focused on achieving Silver and possibly Gold accredited in FORS.
If you dont know what FORS is yet, its the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme.
FORS accredited Hauliers operate on a set of rules and regulations to make our operations safer and more environmentally friendly.
This ensures an efficient and safe working environment and a workforce that actively seek a more environmental operation.
Isn't FORS just for London?
The FORS recognition started in London to help reduce emissions and increase safety for cyclists (among other things).
However being FORS recognised outside of London shows that we are very dedicated to becoming the best possible service in every area, not just London!
Is FORS a required accreditation?
No a FORS accreditation is not a requirement at the moment.
Bringing the FORS accreditation to DTS is a way of stating we are looking to give all our customers the very best service available.
So why FORS?
FORS is a standard that should become the focus for all hauliers to achieve.
It enhances the operations of the staff routing and planning vehicles.
FORS ensures our drivers know how to safely and efficiently operate on a day to day basis.
It simply is the way every haulier should be at the moment!
