What is FORS and why is it for you?

FORS, the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme, is a voluntary accreditation scheme dedicated to raising standards across the road transport industry. Now in its 11th year, FORS continues to provide best practice principles for transport operators of any size and vehicle make-up , including HGVs, vans, passenger carrying vehicles, powered two-wheelers and passenger cars.

With over 5,000 members across the UK and Europe, FORS is a well-established transport industry accreditation scheme encompassing all aspects of safety, efficiency, and environmental protection. Fleet operators who join the scheme are required to adhere to a number of requirements as set out in the FORS Standard. It is through progressive accreditation – Bronze, Silver and Gold – that FORS members are able to realise tangible benefits including minimising work-related road risks, boosting efficiency and reducing their environmental impact.

FORS provides accreditation pathways for operators of any type, and for organisations that award contracts and specify transport requirements.

FORS members stand out from the crowd; operating to standards above the legal minimum and benefitting from access to a wide range of membership incentives that provide a competitive edge.
