What is FORS and why is it for you?

FORS, the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme, is a voluntary accreditation scheme dedicated to driving-up standards across the road transport industry. Now in its 11th year, FORS continues to provide best practice principles for transport operators working with a wide range of commercial vehicles, including HGVs, van, passenger carrying vehicles, and powered two-wheelers.

With over 5,000 members across the UK and Europe, FORS is a well-established international industry accreditation scheme encompassing all aspects of safety, efficiency, and environmental protection.  FORS trains fleet operators to measure, monitor and improve performance, encouraging members to strive for best possible working practices to improve vehicle productivity and reduce costs.

FORS provides accreditation pathways for operators of any type, and for organisations that award contracts and specify transport requirements. FORS Bronze, Silver and Gold membership encourages progressive accreditation with the ultimate goal of achieving exemplary levels of best practice.

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